Method

  • Step 1

    Start with the base for your cheesecake. In your food processor, add your oats and cashews and pulse these for a minute to create a rough flour consistency.

  • Step 2

    Add in your dates and coconut oil and blend again until everything is well combined and the mixture is starting to stick together.

  • Step 3

    Take a loose bottom cake tin(20cmworkswell) and press the mixture into the base of the tin. You can use a spoon or something flat here to help smooth and pack the mixture down. Pop this into the freezer whilst you prepare the creamy filling.

  • Step 4

    For this part you can use your food processor again or switch to a large blender cup.

  • Step 5

    Add in all of your filling ingredients and blend until super smooth and creamy. This will take about 5 minutes. If your mixture is too thick, add a little water or extra coconut milk to help everything blend. You’re looking for a completely smooth, pourable consistency here.

  • Step 6

    Taste test to see if you need to add any extra sweetener, then pour this over your base and leave the cheesecake to set in the freezer for 4 hours+ or overnight.

  • Step 7

    Once ready, carefully remove your cake from the tin and garnish with toppings of choice. Allow to that slightly prior to serving.
