Equipment

  • Food Processor
  • Springform Cake pan

Ingredients

CRUST

  • 1/2 cups raw almonds
  • 1/2 cups raw walnuts
  • 1 cup dates (alt. dry cranberries) pitted

FILLING

  • 10 oz. raw cashew nuts soaked
  • 2 cans (13.5 oz each) coconut cream chill cans upside-down for 2 hours and remove liquid
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup 100% pure and organic
  • 1 lime juice
  • 1 lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

CRUST

  • Pulse the almonds in a food processor to break them up in rough pieces
  • Add the walnuts and pulse until you have coarse crumbs
  • Add the pitted dates or dry cranberries. I used cranberries because I already had them, and also because I prefer the tart flavor they add (remember, I don’t have a sweet tooth)
  • Pulse until you have a sticky, crumbly paste
  • Grease an 8" springform pan with coconut oil
  • Add the crust mixture to the pan and press it down with the bottom of a jar or glass to make sure it's compact and even. Put it covered in the freezer to set and go make the filling

FILLING

  • Add all the filling ingredients to the food processor and blend on high for as long as it takes to have a smooth, thick cream. If it's too dense or too dry, add some regular coconut milk
  • Add the creamy filling to the pan, covering the crust completely and evenly. Cover and move to the freezer to set and firm up for about 6 hours or overnight if you're making it the day before like I did
  • Remove the cheesecake and let it thaw for 5-10 minutes
  • Release the cheesecake from the springform pan. Serve it cold
  • You can store leftovers well wrapped or in an airtight container inside the freezer for up to 2 weeks
