This No Bake Chia Cheesecake vegan dessert is cool and creamy with a thick, rich, "cream cheese" flavor. Each chia-studded slice has a mellow, cozy sweetness from the agave syrup - a hint of tart too. I like to call this a soft serve cheesecake because it has a silky texture that melts in your mouth - yet it still stands up to being sliced like a traditional cheesecake. The nutty oat crust is cheerfully healthy and rustic - with walnuts and oats. Comfort cheesecake.
Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia. Sorry, I had to. Those healthy chia seeds not only add a boost of healthy omega fatty acids and fiber - but they help create a perfectly creamy-gelled texture that is slice-able yet pudding-like (in a good way.) Learn more about the magical thickening properties of chia here. And FYI, since chia seeds are pretty flavorless and become soft when hydrated - you barely notice them in the cheesecake.
