Vegan Dairy-Free Desserts for the New Year!

We know it’s an oxymoron, but our vegan dessert is so good we couldn’t resist calling it cheesecake! According to Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle blog,  “Eli’s is famous for having the best tofu-based vegan cheesecake in the country.” And we agree!

For a healthier take, our chefs have created our delicious Vegan Dairy-Free Belgian Chocolate Cheesecake using rich cocoa, Belgian chocolate, Go Veggie vegan cream cheese, and GMO free tofu, resulting in zero cholesterol, 38% less fat, and 18% fewer calories than regular cheesecake. Our tofu comes from Phoenix Bean, which has been making artisan tofu in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood for over 20 years. It’s made by hand with GMO-Free Illinois soybeans.

Eli’s Vegan Dairy-Free Belgian Chocolate Cheesecake is available in a 7″ round cake, which serves 12, or as a Cutie (bite-sized 1”x1” squares), dusted with cocoa, in a box of 12.​
