Raw Mango and Ginger "Cheesecake"

Raw Mango and Ginger Cheesecake

This indulgent dessert is perfect for special occasions- not only does it taste incredible and will "wow" those who aren't accustomed to this type of eating (& those that are!), but it is also designed to be prepared in advance.

Three great health benefits: good source of fibre, promotes healthy skin, boosts immunity

Serves 8

Ingredients:
1 cup almonds
3/4 cup medjool dates, pitted
2 tsp ground ginger
2 cups cashew nuts, soaked overnight and drained & rinsed
300g fresh mango
1/3 cup coconut oil (liquid)
1/4 cup maple syrup
Juice of 1/2 lime
Edible flowers to decorate (optional but looks lovely!)

Method:
1) Grease an 8 inch springform cake tin with a little coconut oil.
2) Place the almonds in a food processor and whizz until finely chopped. Add the dates and ginger and whizz again until the mixture starts to stick together. Press into the prepared cake tin and place in the freezer to set.
3) Meanwhile, prepare the mango layer. Place the cashews in a clean food processor, along with the mango, coconut oil, maple syrup and lime juice and whizz together until smooth.
4) Pour the mango mixture into the cake tin and smooth the top. Freeze overnight to set. Remove from the freezer approximately 20 minutes before serving. Decorate with edible flowers to serve.
