Mango and cashew vegan cheesecake

(Serves 10) 

Ingredients

For the biscuit base:

  • 200g fruity vegan oat biscuits
  • 3 tbsp mixed nut butter

For the cashew ‘cheese’ layer:

  • 200g cashews, soaked in water for 30 minutes then drained and rinsed
  • 200ml coconut milk
  • 400g plain coconut yogurt
  • 1 tbsp coconut cream
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Pinch of sea salt

For the fresh mango compote:

  • 2 mangos, peeled, stoned and diced into half-cm cubes
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup

To garnish:

  • Zest and juice of 1 lime

Method

  1. To make the biscuit base, crush the biscuits in a food processor. Add the nut butter and process until well combined. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and set aside. Clean the food processor.
  2. Place all the cashew “cheese” layer ingredients in the food processor and blend until smooth.
  3. Line the base of a 26cm round glass cheesecake dish with the biscuit and nut butter mixture and press into place. Pour over the blended cashew “cheese” mixture. Cover and let it set in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, make the mango compote. Place the mango and golden syrup in a shallow frying pan over a medium heat. Stir gently to combine.
  5. Cook for two to three minutes until the mango has softened and the mixture is slightly sticky. Take off the heat and let cool for 30 minutes.
  6. To assemble, remove the “cheesecake” from the refrigerator and top with the cooled mango compote. Just before serving, garnish with the lime zest and juice. Enjoy!
