There’s nothing quite like enjoying dessert out of a little, wee cup.
If you haven’t tried it, I highly suggest that you do.
In fact, I suggest that you do it with everything that you eat. Using a smaller dish for your meals (and snacks) will make all of your portions look larger. You’ll feel more satisfied just by looking at your portion and I can just about guarantee that you won’t get up for a second serving, or eat until you’re uncomfortably full.
I picked up this mindful portioning trick a couple of years ago and am consistently amazed at it’s practicality.
Moral of the story: small ramekins are my friends… and they should be yours, too.
Aside from this recipe being of the itsy-bitsy variety, it’s also rather Spring-like, wouldn’t you say?
I just can’t get flowers, green grass and Spring showers out of my head…
Which surprises me because this was the scene of our backyard yesterday morning:
It only got more serious as the day progressed.
Were you hit with a huge snowfall yesterday, too?
If so, why don’t we all just hustle to our kitchens, make a batch of cheesecake and dream away the Winter.
Who’s with me?

Vegan and honey is a sticky situation (heh). When I was vegan I did the honey thing. You may not… and that’s okay.
Feel free to replace the honey in this recipe with whatever other sweetener you have handy. Chris – you can use stevia ;) Whoop, whoop!
If you look closely at the picture below and to the left, you’ll see my smashingly awesome work ensemble of yesterday… pajama bottoms and an old painting t-shirt. Classy, right?
I loved how creamy the cream cheese layer turned out to be. I could have just licked every inch of the inside of my blender…
but my face didn’t fit.
And, because you guys liked the chia fruit spread so much, I figured I’d make a batch of my own and use it as a topping instead of a regular compote. It was so incredibly easy… I know you can do it. Adding the chia into the cooked fruit helped to soak up all the juices from the fruit, making the blueberry mixture so easy to drop and shape onto the top of this vegan cheesecake. It definitely won’t be the last time that I use chia with cooked fruit, that’s for sure!
Once everything has cooled, just layer your ingredients, let them chill in the fridge for a couple of hours…
And you’ve got yourself a perfect dessert for later. Yum yumity yum.
And after I was done making these little gems, I decided to use the snow day as an excuse to spend the afternoon snuggled in my office editing the photos for my grain-free, vegan cookbook…
It was one yummy scene, I’ll tell ya. Let’s just say that I’m happy I went into the project with a dessert-filled belly!
Okay, over and out! Have a lovely day ;)
