Raw Lemon and Berry Cheesecake

A bright and vibrant dessert packed with citrus flavours and a beautiful berry coulis 
topping made by @Charleyshealth. This is a completely dairy-free and plant based cheesecake with a crunchy 
nutty base, creamy cashew filling and sour berry topping.
1/2 cup almonds 
1/2 cup oats 
1/2 cup pitted dates 
Tbsp Vita Coco Coconut oil 
Cheesecake layer: 
21/2 cups cashew nuts 
3 tbsp Vita Coco coconut oil 
3 tbsp agave/maple syrup 
3/4 cup coconut milk 
Dash of vanilla extract 
Juice and zest from two 
2 passionfruit 
Berry Topping: 
1 cup frozen raspberries 
Tbsp maple/agave syrup
To make the cheesecake base, combine the oats and almonds in a food 
processor and blitz until finely ground. 
Add in the dates and coconut oil and blend to combine. 
Pour this into the base of a loose bottom cake thin and press firmly into 
the base to create a smooth surface. Pop this into the freezer to chill. 
For the filling, combine all of the ingredients apart from the passionfruit 
and blend to create a smooth and creamy consistency. Scoop out the 
inside of the passionfruit and blend again for a few seconds. 
Pour this over the base and allow to chill in the freezer and set for at least 
3 hours. 
Meanwhile, melt the berries and stir through the sweetener to taste. Set 
this aside and allow to cool completely. 
Once the cheesecake is ready, allow to thaw slightly before serving and 
top with the berry coulis.
