“Oh your going to a dinner party? Is it Hawaiian themed?”

That’s what Niki said when I showed her the photos of this recipe and concurrently told her I was heading out to a dinner party. 

“Where did you pull Hawaii from?” 

…”Aren’t those coconut bras?”

Two weekends ago, my friends who live in Forest Hill (yep, the epic crew who invited me over for the 4th of July festivities and then threw a second hand one on the 5th because of transport issues) invited me over for dinner. One of my friends has a colleague who smoked their own fish and sold it at local markets on weekends with their family. My friend generously bought a small portion for us to all share, along with some other grilled goodies.

Being the gentleman I am (no meme), I offered to bring something and by offered I said I’d bring dessert. I made the silly mistake of asking what sounded good and they said cheesecake and berries. I asked them what made them suggest that and they said they bought a frozen blueberry cheesecake and forgot about it and left it in their boot.

They forgot about a cheesecake and left it in the boot.

THEY FORGOT ABOUT A CHEESECAKE AND LEFT IT IN THE BOOT.

Sorry the meme was necessary again. Firstly, who forgets about a cheesecake and secondly, why was it in the boot? 

Enough.

So I had the challenge ahead of me. Cheesecake. Blueberries. NOT frozen in case I, you know, just leave it in the (non existent) boot. I thought of making a cheesecake from scratch and of course, thought that sounded like punishment. I then thought to be sneaky and just buy one and claim it as my own but my friends are incredibly smart and would see right past it. I thought to try and make a no bake ‘cup’ and add a cheesecake like filling in it. After testing out a few variations of the base, I came up with one which held it’s shape, didn’t need to be refrigerated and was delicious.

WIN.

These healthy no bake cheesecake cups are the perfect healthy dessert to whip out this Summer or anytime really! They are impressive to showcase yet could not be any easier! The base uses my favourite type of flour, coconut but for those not fans of it, I have trialled it with almond flour too. It’s sweet without being too sweet and honestly, I could have eaten them on their own. After freezing them for a few minutes to firm up, I added a ‘cream cheese’ filling and some frozen blueberries because…well, that is what I was requested. 

Confession- I kind of cheated for the ‘cheesecake’ filling and the paleo substitution trialled is evidently not cheese but it tastes delicious and that’s what counts.

NO MEME.

Being the gentleman (again), I of course wanted to look my best before attending said event. As part of my ambassadorship with social stars and Schick Hydro®, they obviously came into play when getting ready. Mum always brought me up to look my best for each situation, regardless of what it may be (she made me shower before a ‘Paint Fight’ in Melbourne when I was in high school), Even though this was a casual dinner party mostly outside, I still did my pre outing routine, finishing off with a fresh shave. Clean, suave and ready to….eat.

 

Epically eat. And to present these cheesecakes. (Check THAT out. Be thankful I’m not in such a state!)

  4. pinch cinnamon
  5. 1/2 cup almond or cashew butter (can sub for any nut butter of choice)
  6. 1/4 cup- 1 cup + dairy free milk of choice**
For the 'cheesecake' (vegan/gluten free version)
  1. 1 tub dairy free cream cheese, softened
  2. 3 T granulated sweetener of choice (can sub for maple syrup)
  3. Berries or toppings of choice
For the Paleo 'cheesecake'

  1. Cheesecake may quite possibly be my favorite dessert ever, especially chocolate cheesecake. It was a sad day indeed when I realized that Dairy and I are not friends, so this recipe is perfect!

  2. Oh yes please! I could bath in cheesecake! And blueberry is my favorite cheesecake counterpart. Pinned with a mental note to make asap!

  3. hahahha. who forgets cheesecake?! thats insane.
    i’m definitely trying these cheesecake cups soon. i see them at the store all the time, but like everything, i prefer to make my own! thanks

  4. WOWOW! I know I would LOVE these single serving bites of YUM. Thanks for sharing – Pinning til I can make them! Sounds like there’s never a dull moment for you in NYC. =)

  5. Sign me up for dessert duty any day of the week! I’m still laughing about the whole cheesecake left in the boot. (Although to be honest, I was visualizing a cheesecake stuffed into a hiking boot…you Aussies and your language. Hah!) I’m all about quick and easy (and delicious!) desserts! Plus, you can use the leftovers as coconut bras. Win!
