Preparation

  1. Grease a cake pan with a removable base with coconut oil. Lining the sides with parchment, it helps with the cake removal but isn't necessary.
  2. With a food processor, blend the crust ingredients together into a dough, and then press it evenly into the bottom of the pan.
  3. Drain the soaked cashews and blend them with the rest of the ingredients for the cheese layer, until it forms a smooth paste.
  4. Pour this on top of the crust layer and smooth the top out.
  5. Add any garnishes if you desire. Freeze it for a minimum of 6 hours to let it set. To serve, either remove it from the freezer 1 hour prior to serving or cut with a hot knife.
