“Cheese” cake is a breakfast food, right? My fave flavor has always been cherry cheesecake, but give any of your ripe summer berries a try. Adding the coconut milk, cashew, and vanilla make this a ridiculously easy way to enjoy all the pleasures of your fave summer dessert – graham cracker topping and all. Enjoy!
