Tofu. Cheesecake. The second type of no-bake cheesecakes I'm exploring. Having shared this with many colleagues, both the yoghurt type cheesecake and this tofu cheesecakes have their league of fans. Many love this for it's lighter in taste and of course, it's lighter in terms of calories consumed!
I'm delighted to have the chance to try the SunMoon fruit cups and it was pretty amazing to me how the fruits are kept fresh in apple juice rather than the usual sugar syrups that come with canned fruits. I then toyed with the idea of fresh fruits inside the cake as opposed to always having it on the outside.. And the Orange Tofu Cheesecake was birthed.
It was such a hit at the office. It's also my joy and pleasure to be able to feed people and see the delight on their faces when they enjoy what I've prepared.
This recipe is relatively simple at 3 out of 5 stars in terms of difficulty and it takes about 1 hour 30 minutes to complete. Also, there's a giveaway for SunMoon products in this blog post!

I was blessed with a good amount of SunMoon products to play with and boy do I love the apple crisps and fruit cups!
