To begin making No Bake Mini Cheesecakes I lined a muffin tin with muffin liners.

The base for these cheesecakes was the gluten free ginger snaps pictured below.

I placed a ginger snap in the bottom of each liner.

Then I dumped some dairy free cream cheese (I used Tofutti brand), icing sugar, lemon juice and vanilla extract into a mixing bowl.

I used an electric hand mixer to beat these ingredients until creamy.

Then I added in one full tub of Cool Whip whipped topping (large tub).

Next I used the electric hand mixer again to beat in the Cool Whip topping until well combined.  This took 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.

Beating all the ingredients untii combined and fluffy.

Next I used a scoop to transfer the cream cheese mixture into each muffin cup. 

I filled them almost to the top and then placed the pan in the fridge for at least an hour for the cheesecakes to set.

The next step is where you can use your own creativity.

Before serving the No Bake Mini Cheesecakes I mixed some chocolate sauce and peanut butter together for one of the topping choices.

To make it spreadable I added a splash of almond milk.

I also stirred up some wild blueberry and raspberry jam to have as topping options.

The great thing about No Bake Mini Cheesecakes, is that you can top them off to suit your tastes or the occasion!  Use your imagination and creativity.

This recipe makes it easy for those that might like to eat their cheesecake plain as well.

Once chilled I carefully removed the cheesecakes from the muffin liners.

Serve up No Bake Mini Cheesecakes knowing that you will be consuming very little dairy.  Those that can enjoy dairy will not taste any difference.

Multiple topping choices allow everyone to create their own unique dessert.

Every mouthful of this light, decadent dessert will be savoured by your guests!
