Are you ready to make this Lemon Cheesecake Mousse with me? Get your 5 ingredients and let’s get started! As always, no complicated steps!
Get your blender or food processor going to make the bottom.
Simply combine vegan Graham crackers, lemon juice, and maple syrup. Pulse into crumbles, and fill them into your desserts jars and you have a solid foundation.
For the mousse, we go back to the blender.
Combine vegan cream cheese, cashews, lemon juice + zest, maple syrup and blend until you have smooth cream. Give it over the bottom and chill until serving.
Or just serve straight away, done.
If you need it a bit fancier, garnish with some fresh raspberries and mint, sprinkle with some lemon zest. Possibilities are endless.
