Raspberry Lime Cheesecake Cups

I had bought some daiya cream cheese a while back, with the intent of making my first vegan cheesecake. I wasn’t sure how the texture of the dairy free spread would compare, but I was pleasantly surprised. My only concern was that the flavour was a bit salty, but with the right amount of sweetener it can definitely be counteracted. Feel free to use the basis of this dessert and create your own flavourings; blueberry with peach topping, banana coconut, etc.
