Neverland Vegan High Tea

Image
 I won a gift card for Neverland Tea Salon and Foodie Buddy suggested we go there because they have vegan high tea. Regular price of the tea is $50 per person which for Vancouver is a reasonable price. We were a little late to arrive as we commuted by transit. The place was very crowded but we were seated and given the menu. The server explained that we could have as many teas as we wanted but you could only one at a time. I ordered an apple black tea for the first one they also have a variety of plant milk choices I requested almond milk.  I ordered the Vegan high tea and Foodiebuddy ordered the traditional. Our platter came with all the vegan items close to me and the other items on the other side. The server explained what everything was but I still had to look up the menu online.  I started by trying the scone. The vegan ‘cream’ tasted like the coconut whipping cream you get at the grocery store. We were only given one container of jam to share but foodie buddy let me have it. The

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.
