Superfood Berry Cheesecake

Makes 1 large cheesecake

Ingredients:

  • For the crust:
  • 1 scoop Very Berry Super Scoop (you can substitute this with a strawberry Protein powder)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¾ cup dates, soaked in boiling water for 10 minutes
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted

For the cheesecake:

  • 2 scoops Very Berry Super Scoop
  • 2 cups cashew nuts, soaked in water overnight
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • ½ cup lite coconut milk
  • ½ cup agave

For the cheesecake topping:

  1. Lightly spray a spring form cake tin with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Add all the crust ingredients to a food processor, or blender and blend until a crumbly, yet pliable dough starts to form. If the dough is too dry, add some water, 1 Tbsp at a time.
  3. Press the dough tightly into the cake tin and pop into the freezer to harden while the cheesecake mixture is made.
  4. Add all the cheesecake ingredients to a clean food processor or blender.
  5. Blend until smooth and creamy. This shouldn’t take too long as the cashew nuts should already be soft.
  6. Pour into the cake tin.
  7. Add one cup of the strawberries to a food processor and blend until a smooth, strawberry coulis forms. (you may want to add some lemon juice and sweetener as well)
  8. Spread the coulis over the cheesecake
  9. Slice the remainder of the strawberries and place over the top of the cheesecake
  10. Refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours (or freeze and have an ice-cream cheesecake!)
