Our lightly sweet, caramel-y, and creamy Maple Chai Deconstructed Mini Cheesecakes take only ten minutes to make, and will easily become a crowd favorite!
In fact, I would even recommend making this in advance and placing in the fridge for at least 30 minutes prior to serving to help the flavors to blossom! However, keep in mind that the longer it sits in the fridge, the softer the graham "crust" will become.

Okay, here me out...
So, a typical slice of cheesecake can rack up about 250+ calories with 18 grams of fat. No regrets, right?
BUT, with these deconstructed mini cheesecakes, you're breaking up one slice into like 3-4 cups. PLUS, we are using Neufchâtel to reduce the excess fats AND our favorite unsweetened kept creamer from PICNIK (read more below). AND there is NO added sugars 🙌
PICNIK offers a line a functional creamers that are sold nationwide in stores like Whole Foods Market & Sprouts.
Their creamers are available in four varieties - Vanilla Oatmilk Adaptogen, Keto, Vegan, and Collagen. Each is made with a superstar blend of grass-fed or plant-based fats and energizing MCT oil!
Fun fact - PICNIK was founded by Naomi Seifter who opened her first location in Austin, Texas in 2013 out of a 150 sq. ft. food trailer to provide gluten-free options with a farm-to-table concept!
PICNIK's Unsweetned KETO Creamer is this superstar blend of all-natural, organic ingredients like grass-fed butter, grass-fed whey protein, and MCT oil to keep you energized throughout the day! It tastes just like your regular half-and-half BUT SO MUCH BETTER
PICNIK's Plant-Based Coffee Creamer tastes so SO similar to your regular dairy half-and-half - it's wild! It's made with nutritiously rich cashew milk, coconut cream and MCT oil for a brain boost. It has this luxurious texture and a creamy finish to give you the best replacement for half-and-half.
Plus, it's paleo, kept, and sugar-free!
They are available in a wide variety of grocery retailers nationwide, from Costco to Whole Foods to Sprouts
