Raw-Vegan Mango-Coconut Cheesecake Topped w/ Fresh Passionfruit

Okay guys so I apologize for this one in advance. If you're anything like me you will NOT be able to stop at one slice but thanks to this containing only pure, raw, vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, pus-free, cruelty-free ingredients that's not a problem! Eat the whole thing without feeling guilty or sluggish. This gorgeous babe is beneficial to your health, the planet, the animals, people, and of course your tastebuds! 😍I would share some with you but I'm too busy inhaling the entire thing... so I guess you'll just have to try it for yourself 😁😁😁(or order one from me if you're on Maui). I got off of work a little early so I made this at 11:40pm last night and it's literally the best thing I've created yet. I'm so excited to share this recipe with you and PLEASE tag me on Instagram if you decide to try it out! @veganyasmeen and #veganyasmeen xx
