- 150 g cashew nuts
- 4 Medjool dates
- 1/2 vanilla pod
- 1 good tbsp coconut oil

- pinch of rock salt (I used Himalayan pink)

Scrape down the sides as needed and add more water if the mixture is too thick.
Scrape into a jar and keep in the fridge until needed.
Nuts require overnight soaking. A high speed blender will give a much smoother result. Can be used as a cake or biscuit filling as well as an alternative cheesecake. Keeps in the fridge for a good week or so.
