Directions: – 

Preparation for the filling 

  • Soak the raw cashews and raw hazelnuts in hot water for at least an hour (uncovered) or in cold water overnight

For the crust

  • Put all the ingredients listed for the crust in a high speed blender or a food processor and process into a sticky meal consistency. Set aside.

For the filling

  • Drain and rinse the soaked cashew and hazelnuts.
  • In a processor or blender put the soaked nuts, and the rest of the ingredients listed for the filling.
  • Mix until very smooth scraping down sides as needed. If it won’t come together, add a touch more lemon juice, agave or a splash of milk of choice as the liquid should help it blend better.
  • Taste and adjust flavour/sweetness as needed, adding more melted cocoa butter for chocolate flavor, lemon juice for that cheesecake tang, salt for flavor balance, or agave syrup for sweetness.

Assembling the cheesecake

  • In a ramekin or other serving dish, start by pressing the coarse nutty meal so to form the base crust of the cheesecake. Make sure that it’s pressed tightly otherwise, the crust will crumble.
  • Fill the rest of the ramekin with the filling mixture.
  • Feel free to decorate with coconut shavings and hazelnut pieces.
  • Refrigerate for at least for four hours or overnight so that it will set.
