Day 2 Jamaica trip 2024

I’m writing this post a few weeks after returning to Ottawa but the next few days I wrote while I was in Jamaica. It was a very busy trip but this was a day I got to stay at the resort. Jewel Paradise Cove while my friend figured out our plans for the remainder of the week.  The resort posts the activity schedule on the app, on tv’s in the room, and on a screen in the lobby. I had seen that there was a resort tour at 11:00. I have stayed in many resorts and it usually the company that you booked with doing these tours. I liked that there was no need to wait for a specific tour rep and the hotel was doing this. My friend was out up and early for the garden tour. I slept in and went for breakfast at 10:30. I wanted my friend to come in the hotel tour with me because I have no sense of direction but we later discovered we weren’t getting each others text messages and I thought she was still on the garden tour.  I had received my friends text that she was disappointed there were no plantai

I tried to make Ashley’s 2 ingredient instantpot cheesecake vegan

On my heartbeets.com there is a 2 ingredient instantpot cheesecake recipe which uses sweetened condensed milk and yogurt. The website states that she does not have a good vegan alternative. I have tried to veganize this recipe before. I used biscoff cookies, oat yogurt, and sweetened condensed milk. I thought it was good but I don't like oat yogurt and the recipe could be improved.
This time I have better ingredients. Activia now makes a plant based yogurt which is delicious. I also have accidently vegan cookies. They have a really fluffy nice filling. I thought I would use the cookies as the crust and mix the filling with the yogurt and condensed milk.
I don't have a cheesecake pan so i just used a cake pan that fits in the instantpot. I greased the pan with vegan butter and grinded the cookies in the magic bullet.
I was having a hard time mixing the cookie filling into the yogurt mixture so I also mixed it in the magic bullet. Then I poured the mixture into the cookie crust. I recently bought a lot of chocolate chips because they were on sale so I decided to top the mixture with chocolate chips.
Finally I covered the cake with tinfoil added 2 cups of water to the instapot. I placed the cake on the trivet in the pot. I can never get the trivet to stand properly but it is fine on angle. I Set the pot on manual for 30 minutes. Then let it natural realease for another twenty minutes.
Right after I took the cake out of the Instantpot I mixed the chocolate chips in with a fork. I was hopeful the cake would firm up when it cooled. I tried it hot it was very soft but it was tasty.
It ended up being a really tasty chocolate pudding not a cheesecake. In the picture below you might be able to tell that I have eaten some and reshaped it. The last time I made this I put cookies in the filling they are definately needed to hold the cake up. This dessert is not lost though put it in a fancy cup add some fresh fruit and you will have a nice dessert.
