Ingredients

  • 150 g cashew nuts
  • 4 Medjool dates
  • 1/2 vanilla pod
  • 1 good tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp coconut nectar (or sweetener of choice)
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • pinch of rock salt (I used Himalayan pink)
  • 3 tbsp water - more may be needed

Instructions

  • Soak the cashew nuts in water overnight. Drain and rinse thoroughly.
  • Throw everything into a high speed blender and blitz until silky smooth.
  • 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.

Notes

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.
