Day 6 Jamaica Trip April 2024

Image
We went for breakfast at 7:30 as we had booked a driver that was to pick us up at 8:00 am. There were plantains on the buffet this morning and they were good. We were going to Nine Mile which is Bob Marley’s house and some other sightseeing. We couldn’t arrange for the driver to pick up my friends aunt as she lives too far away. We will try and have her come to the resort tomorrow. It’s our last day and I really want to spend one day relaxing at the resort before we leave. Tomorrow is also 4/20 and all over Ocho Rios were signs for parties and discounts. I don’t want to get stuck on the traffic.  The road to Nine mile was so narrow and bumpy. I spent most of the time holding on while listening to my friend and the driver banter and flirt. It is pretty rare that someone can keep up with my friends feistiness so it was entertaining. There were some great views from the window but I couldn’t get any pictures the ride was too bumpy. The roads in Jamaica are very narrow so there is always h

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.
