Cream Ingredients:

  • Solid part from 1 can of coconut milk

Method:

  1. Blend the mixed nuts and oats together until it has all been crushed into small pieces
  2. Then add the dates and coconut oil and blend until it all sticks together and the dates have been chopped up completely
  3. In a loose-bottomed baking tin, push all the mixture down with a spoon until flat
  4. Whilst that’s in the freezer, blend the filling ingredients together until completely smooth
  5. Once smooth, separate mixture in half then blend the orange extract into one half, the pour onto the base and leave to set in the freezer for about an hour until hard
  6. In the meantime, do the same again with the cocoa powder and the remainder of the cream ingredients
  7. When the orange layer is frozen, pour on the chocolate layer and freeze again until solid
  8. When the cheesecake has completely set push out of the tin (if you struggle getting it out put a warm tea towel around the outside for a few minutes)
  9. Enjoy!
