Chai Cheesecake Cups

Maradeth Hart | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 12 people

Created by Bauman College natural chef Maradeth Hart as part of the 2013 Bhakti Chai Recipe Challenge, this raw dessert is the essence of simplicity; says Hart, "If you follow the instructions you really can't mess it up!" For a little more sweet heat, add some finely minced candied ginger to the crust mixture.

Note: This recipe has not been tested in the Delicious Living kitchens.


  1. Soak cashews in filtered water to cover for at least 4 hours; drain.
  2. In a food processor, pulse pecans, date, and salt until well combined. Press a little between your fingers; if it holds together, it's ready. If not, pulse a little more.
  3. Press 2-3 teaspoons pecan mixture into bottom of twelve 2-ounce party cups.
  4. In a blender or clean food processor, combine soaked and drained cashews, coconut oil, chai concentrate, honey, vanilla, and ginger. Blend until smooth and creamy. Add to party cups, filling each about three-fourths full. Garnish each with a pecan half and refrigerate at least 1 hour. Serve cold.
