Espresso No-Bake Vegan Cheesecake is a delicious, creamy, rich dessert that is sure to be a crowd pleaser. It is gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free. I made this vegan cheesecake with coconut based cream cheese. I also added raw cashews, coconut oil, coconut cream, instant coffee grounds, and a special ingredient. Spoiler alert: it’s vegan marshmallows! This extra little ingredient really helps with the texture and flavor.
