    Chef #901913's Note:

    This rich, dairy free, no bake cheesecake is flavored with agave nectar, a raw sweetener derived from the agave plant. Agave nectar is sweeter than honey with a milder, more floral taste—ideal for desserts or drinks.

      Giving this 5 stars based on the texture and how well it held together. But I used raw honey instead of agave, so I can't officially rate the taste it would have had. The flavors of coconut and honey were great together. But I don't think it was anything like an actual cheesecake, at least flavorwise. But it was delicious!

      I made this for a book club meeting & when I said I had a vegan cheesecake some of my friends piped in ... ugh, with tofu, right? ... and I said nope! :-) It was a yummy & surprising treat. :-)
