This no-bake three layered summer fruit cheesecake is really irresistible. The crunchy base is made from oats, hazelnuts, dates and coconut oil, topped with a creamy cashew, lemon and coconut layer, and finished off with a fruit layer, topped with summer fruits. Takes about 15 minutes to make, plus freezing and tastes amazing.
- 11oz Cashews
- 3.5oz Hamlyn's Scottish Porridge Oats
- 7oz Soft Dates
- 3.5oz blanched Hazelnuts
- 2 tablespoons of coconut Oil
- 1 can coconut milk - skim off the thick top and add some of the more liquid milk to make up to 6 Ounces
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- Juice of a lemon
- 1 cup summer fruits - strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or blackberries, or a combination. Extra summer fruits to decorate
- Start by soaking your cashews either overnight in cold water, or soak in warm water for an hour.
- When you’re ready to start making your cheesecake put the porridge oats, dates, nuts and coconut oil into a food processor the blitz until everything is well blended and starts to stick together. You might need a bit more coconut oil, depending on how sticky your dates are.
- Pour the filling into a springform tin and press to cover the bottom of the tin and pop into the freezer while you make your filling.
- Drain and rinse the cashews and put into the blender with the thick part of the coconut milk and your coconut milk liquid, plus the maple syrup and lemon juice and blend until you have a smooth creamy consistency.
- Pour two thirds of the filling over the base and smooth gently to cover.
- Add your summer fruits to the remaining filling and blend until the fruit is fully incorporated. You’ll get a different flavor and color depending on which fruits you use.
- Pour your fruit layer over the creamy layer and spread to cover.
- At this stage you can either decorate with chopped summer fruits before popping into the freezer, or freeze without the extra fruit, then add fresh fruit when you are serving.
- Freeze until set, then cut into slices as required.
