Need a sweet fix that’s good for you too? This cheesecake is guilt free and loaded with healthy ingredients.

paleo dairy free cheesecake recipe


1 cup raw almonds

1 cup desiccated coconut

6 dried figs, chopped and soaked in water 10 minutes

2 cups cashews soaked in water 2 hours

2 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 cup honey

1/3 cup coconut oil, liquid

2 tsp vanilla powder

3 fresh figs, cut into quarters lengthways

Extra desiccated coconut for garnish

Let’s do this!

In a food processor, combine the almonds and desiccated coconut until they reach a biscuit crumb-like consistency.

Add the dried figs and whizz again until the mixture becomes slightly sticky. It should hold together when you press a small amount between your thumb and forefinger. If not, add a teaspoon of water and whizz again briefly.

Press into the base of a 22cm springform tin, taking care to flatten it down evenly.

In a high speed blender, blend the cashews, lemon juice, honey, coconut oil and vanilla powder until silky smooth.

Pour into the springform tin and freeze for 2 hours.

Remove from freezer 15 minutes before serving and decorate with the fresh figs and desiccated coconut.
