When I made the original version of these No-Bake Coconut Cheesecake Cups for Thanksgiving, I just knew I had to make them again. This time around, I gave them a delicious coconut twist.

Using Vital Proteins Coconut Collagen Creamer, I was able to up the protein without adding any artificial sweeteners or added sugars. Our Collagen Creamer also offers a good dosage of healthy fats, thanks to the organic coconut milk which is a great source of MCTs and lauric acid.

These No-Bake Coconut Cheesecake Cups are the perfect little dessert to balance out a savory meal or snack. They’re also dairy free because the filling is actually made with cashews! I’m a huge fan of simple recipes, so I was easily able to make these before running errands, so they could finish setting while I was out.

If you’re looking for a deliciously sweet treat for a party, event, or just to curb that daily sweet tooth, look no further.
