Vegan Cheesecake from Toukies Restaurant

Toukies Vegan Cheesecake

Toukies Vegan Cheesecake

When I was a kid, my aunt would make little cupcake-sized cheesecakes quite often with fresh raspberries on top. She’d bring them over and I’d wolf them down lickety-split. I ate a lot of them. Like, A LOT. Oh how I loved them. Such a treat.

And then. One day. I ate a bunch of cupcake-sized cheesecakes. Got sick.

And vomited.

I didn’t eat cheesecake for many years. As I got older, I’d try a bite here and there, but never a whole piece. The last whole piece I had was a few years ago at a birthday gathering for me at, well…The Cheesecake Factory. So of course the server came out with a slice of cheesecake complete with a lit sparkler on top. I ate most of it, sharing some with my sister and Jon. It wasn’t bad. It was fine. But it wasn’t anything special.

But the vegan cheesecake from Toukies? Whew! It’s now one of my new favorite desserts. It’s incredibly creamy, absolutely moist, delicious and completely vegan! Although Toukies reveals some recipes, their vegan cheesecake is not a recipe they give out. Boo! Ah well. Guess I’ll just have to buy one the next time I crave it.;)

Toukies serves heart-healthy vegan food that’s quite tasty. Check it out if you’re ever in California’s gold country.
