Pineapple cheesecake recipe

Vegan, RAW, gluten-free, wheat-free, natural sugars, easy
My flavourful tropical cheesecake is refreshing, juicy, light and decadent.
This cheesecake incorporates fresh pineapple and coconut which gives a pina colada flavour.

I love to make no-bake/raw cheesecakes and this gave me the ideal opportunity to make something extravagant and extra special for summer which burst's with sweetness and exotic flavours.

The pineapple chunks inside make the cheesecake moist and add's an extra fruity surprise.
It's simple to make and includes 100% vegan & natural ingredients which can be enjoyed as a healthier dessert. 

Preparation- Overnight
Freezing time- 2-4 hours 
Level- Easy

...
Ingredients for the base
-250g of dates (pitted)
-130g of oats (I use gluten-free)
-90g of unsweetened desiccated coconut
-1 teaspoon of maple syrup
-1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
-Pinch of salt

Middle layer
-260g of fresh pineapple

Ingredients for the filling
-250g of cashew nuts (soaked & drained)

-160g of maple syrup (you can use fruit syrup) 
-100g of coconut oil (melted)

To make the base
Step 1- Line a cake tin with grease proof paper.

Step 2- De-seed/pit the dates and add them into a food processor/blender along with the oats, coconut, maple syrup, vanilla extract and salt.

Step 3- Press the mixture into the lined cake tin.
Step 4- Place some pineapple chunks on top and pop into the freezer whilst you prepare the filling.

To make the filling
Step 1- Drain the cashew nuts and place them into a food processor/blender along with the pineapple, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract and lemon juice. 
 Whizz up on high for around 5-8 minutes or until smooth.
Step 3- Pour the creamy pineapple layer onto the base and pop the tray back into the freezer to set.
Allow the cheesecake to set fully.
This will take around 2-4 hours (you can leave it overnight)

Store in a sealed container in the freezer and defrost before serving.
Serve with fresh pineapple, coconut, lemon or even creamy coconut cream! YUM.
