Vanilla + Lime "cashew free" cheesecake
  • Base:
  • 1 cup buckwheat
  • 1 cup gf oats
  • 1 cup coconut flakes
  • 12 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 Tbsp almond butter (if you can't eat almonds try another nut butter or a seed butter)
  • Filling:
  • 600g of good quality organic silken tofu (tofu usefully comes in 300g packets so get two of these)
  • 3 limes, juiced
  • 1 zest of a lime
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup maple syrup (add a little more if you prefer a sweeter taste)
  • 1 tsp vanila powder
  1. Blend together base ingredients using a food processor or high speed blender, scoop out, place in a loose base tart tin and push down with fingers until it is spread evenly down the bottom and sides then place in freezer while you make the filling.
  2. For the filling, blend all ingredients until smooth and pour into the base.
  3. Place in fridge over night to set for best results.
  4. Once it's set, top with lime zest, blueberries or homemade berry chia seed jam (my favourite toppings).
  5. Be careful when serving as the cake is very delicate and it may be best to leave the bottom of the cake tin on! it's also best served straight out of the fridge so it's nice and firm.
  6. Stores up to 5 days in fridge. Enjoy!
