Filling:

  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

  3. For the crust, roll out 6 Nii Bars and lay them on a glass pie pan
  4. Pour blender content over the crust and refrigerate for 2 hours
  5. For the topping, blend both ingredients together
  6. Pour topping over the cheesecake after the cheesecake has chilled
