Ingredients

Ingredients for base:

  • 200 g almonds
  • 100 g pitted dates
  • 2 tbsp water

Ingredients for the cheesecake:

  • 200 g cashews soaked for 30 minutes in hot water
  • 100 g coconut fat top part in a can of coconut milk roughly 6 tbsp
  • 9 tbsp coconut water from the bottom of the can of coconut milk
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 Juice of lemon

Chocolate topping:

  • 6 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 40 g cacao powder

Instructions

  • I used a 9 inch square cheesecake tin, you can try with others if you wish for a different shape
  • Soak the cashews for 30 minutes in hot water
  • First make the base by adding the almonds and dates into the food processor and blend into crumbs, then add the water and blitz again to make it sticky
  • Place a sheet of baking paper inside the tin then place the nut mix into the bottom and press down until evenly spread
  • Drain the soaked cashews and add to a high powered processor or a large cup blender along with the lemon juice, maple syrup, coconut fat, coconut water and blend until very smooth (this can take up to 5 minutes, make sure to press the leftover bits on the side down to make the whole mix smooth)
  • Now Pour the mixture on top of the base making sure to smooth over the top
  • Add to the freezer for 2-3 hours (you are looking for the cheesecake layer to be firm)
  • Just before the 2-3 hours is up make the chocolate sauce topping by adding the melted coconut oil and maple syrup to a Bain Marie and slowly stir in the cacao powder
  • Remove the cheesecake from the freezer, gently pour over the chocolate mix and place back in the freezer for 30 minutes
  • Simply slice it up and its ready to serve

Notes

You can store these cheesecake squares in the freezer or fridge where they will last for at least a week!
