CHAI VEGAN CHEESECAKE CUPS

VEGAN + LOW SUGAR

A GUILT FREE TREAT USING CASHEW NUTS

This recipe is not only easy but also a gazillion times healthier than the typical cheesecake we're all use to! It's an absolute winner and very versatile so you can make it any flavour you want - remove the spices and top it with fresh berries, chocolate or whatever you fancy! I topped my little cheesecake cups with a pumpkin-tahini topping.
