Food Friday: Canada Day No Bake Cheesecakes

It’s Canada Day weekend! I will be heading up north to my Aunt and Uncle’s place in Gravenhurst, and I’m excited to relax and spend time with my family. For the celebrations today, I’ve made these delicious No Bake Cheesecakes that I put into mason jars. These little treats are in the Canada Day-themed colours and the perfect dessert to end the night.

Enjoy your long weekend!
