Enjoy!

Dairy consumption can also cause or aggravate many health problems, and creates enormous environmental pollution.

Shifting towards a more compassionate, healthy, sustainable dairy-free kitchen doesn't have to be daunting. Armed with a little knowledge, an adventurous spirit, and some vegan cheesecake recipes, going dairy-free can be surprisingly easy and delicious!
