Preparation

Prepare the crust
  1. Put all ingredients for the crust in a food processor and process until well combined and crumbly.
  2. Put (2) tablespoons of the crust mixture into each of the mini-cheesecake holders and save any remaining crumbs for garnish.
  3. Press the crumb mixture very firmly into the mini-cheesecake holders and put in the freezer while you prepare the filling.
Prepare the filling
  1. Put all ingredients for the filling into a Vitamix and blend well until smooth and creamy.
  2. Fill each mini-cheesecake holder to the top with the filling mixture.
  3. Return to the freezer for approximately (1) hour or until hard and firm.
Assemble
  1. Remove from the freezer about 10 -15 minutes before serving so they can thaw slightly.
  2. Store in freezer because they will get soft and lose their shape if left out at room temperature.
Optional: Add a dollop of homemade whipped coconut cream and/or sprinkle leftover crust mixture on the top.
