Juice of 1 large Lemon 

1/3 cup of Coconut Oil

  1. Boil some water and soak cashew nuts for 15 minutes until soft. Strain excess water and set nuts aside. 
  2. Add the dates to a blender and mix into small pieces and place in a small bowl. Next, add almonds and process into a very small meal. Add dates, coconut oil and salt into the almond meal and blend ingredients on high speed until a soft dough is formed.

  4. Add cashew nuts, lemon juice, coconut oil, coconut milk and maple syrup to a blender and mix until a smooth paste is created. Pour filling on top of the bases in the muffin tin. 
  5. Swirl raspberry coulis on top of the filling and place in a freezer to set, allow 2-3 hours for the cheesecake to set. 

Garnish with mint and add extra coulis when ready to serve.
