Vegan Cheesecake Cups Recipe - an unbelievable decadent yet healthy  treat that is 100% dairy-free, gluten-free & grain-free! Optionally paleo, too.

According to Tara:

“These addictive treats are dairy free, soy free, gluten free and free of refined sugar. Keep them stored in the freezer and let them defrost 10-15 minutes before serving …otherwise they’ll probably all be gone in minutes! So Delicious Coconut Milk and cashew nuts make for creamy no-bake vegan cheesecake cups that are a great alternative to the usual silken tofu based vegan fare. Enjoy!”
