Mango & Lime cheesecake - serves 4
This 'cheesecake' contains no cheese, and is infact vegan, gluten free, and absolutely amazing! The recipe is from Nourish magazines dessert edition, and created by The Kind Cook. It's a lot more involved than the banana soft serve, but it will wow you and is so worth it.
Ingredients for the crust:
1/2 cup almonds (I used walnuts)
4 fresh pitted dates
1 to 2 tbsp. raw cacao powder
Ingredients for the filling:
1 cup cashews (I used macadamias)
1/4 cup fresh mango flesh
1/4 cup coconut cream
4 tbsp. melted coconut oil
2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
zest from 2 limes
2 tbsp. pure maple syrup
2 pinches salt
Extra mango flesh for the garnish
Line a round 10cm round and 7cm deep cake tin with baking paper. Blend the crust ingredients in a high powered blender or food processor until well combined, and dough like. Add a tsp of water if its too dry. Press the crust into the base of the tin, using wet finger tips.
Place all of the filling ingredients into your blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Spoon this mixture onto the crust, and place into the freezer for 1 hour. Once the cake has set, remove from the freezer. Top with sliced mango and serve.
