Lime slices and dairy free whipped cream for garnish(optional)
In a large bowl, beat the non-dairy cream cheese with a hand blender to soften it and make it smooth.
Then add the powdered sugar, natural yellow and blue food color, and the lime zest.
For the food coloring, add little bits of yellow and blue color powder to the filling until you get a light green color you like. The coloring is totally optional, however, and you can opt for no coloring if you like. It won't affect the flavor.
Beat in the lime juice and vanilla, mixing well so the cheesecake mixture is smooth.
Add 1/2 of the container of So Delicious CocoWhip to the bowl and beat together with the cream cheese mixture until it's smooth and mixed thoroughly, then fold in the remaining CocoWhip by hand with a spatula.
Spread the cheesecake mixture into the pre-made crust or the homemade cookie crust, spreading out to make it smooth on top.
Chill for 4 or more hours, until it is chilled and has firmed up enough to slice.
Serve topped with lime slices or dairy free whipped cream. Enjoy!
* So Delicious CocoWhip is a coconut-based dairy free and soy-free whipped cream
