No-Bake Mini Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecakes

Nicolette Stramara


Take the pumpkin out of the pie and put it into these adorable (and better-for-you) mini cheesecakes. Made with pumpkin puree and warm spices, each diminutive dessert is rich, creamy and has just the right amount of fall-inspired flavor. The crust, which is quickly formed from four whole food ingredients, adds a layer of sweet, crumbly goodness that flawlessly complements the filling. Great for your socially distant holiday gatherings, the perfectly portioned treats are charming, convenient and sure to give guests pumpkin to talk about.

Recipe Notes

For a vegan-friendly whipped cream, try coconut milk and maple syrup.

*Refrigerate the can of coconut cream overnight to aid in separating the solid portion from the liquid, making it easy to scoop out the solid part.

**A suitable substitute is cornstarch.
