1 large cheesecake


150g Borna Pistachios Kernels (roughly chopped)
70g Walnuts (roughly chopped)
200g Dark chocolate
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Agave syrup
Pinch salt

460g Cashews
4 Medjool dates
75ml Espresso coffee
250ml Almond milk
8 halved walnuts
Small hand full Borna Pistachios Kernels (finely chopped)
20g Dark chocolate


♥ Melt the dark chocolate with the cinnamon and agave syrup until completely smooth and runny

♥ mix the melted chocolate and roughly chopped pistachios and walnuts together

♥ Line the bottom of the cake tin with baking sheet paper. Make sure the bottom of the tin slides up so it’s easier to remove the cheesecake.

♥ Transfer the chocolate mix into a cake tin and press the mixture into the bottom ensuring the bottom of the tin is completely covered and to the sides of the tin.

♥ Place in the fridge to set for 20 mins

♥ Meanwhile, chop the date roughly and add to a blender.

♥ Discard the water from the soaked cashews and put them in a blender. While blitzing slowly add the coffee and almond milk. Stop blitzing once the mixture is dense, thick and smooth (the smoothness can be checked by pinching a little mixture in between your fingers and rubbing them together. If the mixture is still grainy then carry on blitzing)

♥ Once the base is set, spoon the topping into the tin. Make sure the topping is evenly spread otherwise you’ll have a wonky cake

♥ add the 8 walnuts on top and sprinkle the finely chopping pistachios to the top

♥ Melt the 10g chocolate until smooth and drizzle on top of the cheesecake by using a spoon

♥ Put in the fridge for 2 hours so the ‘cheese’cake can become firm…then, it’s time to scoff your face!
