Kiwi Pina-Colada “Cheesecake” (raw, vegan)
For 2 portions
– 1/2 cup nuts (I used walnuts)
– 1/2 cup dates
– 1 tbsp coconut butter
– 2-3 tbsp coffee (optional: makes a lovely match with dates)
– 2 tbsp coconut cream
– 2 pineapple slices
– 1 kiwi
– 1/4 cup nuts (soaked for 1/2 hour)
– gelatine (optional)
– coconut chips (optional: for decoration)
Base: Blend all ingredients in a food processor (or with a blender) until it makes a thick and sticky mass. Spread it on the bottom of a cake tin and freeze until the filling is done.
Filling: Like the base, blend all ingredients together until it’s smooth. Cover the crust
with it flattening the top.
Decorate with coconut chips and kiwi slices.
Refrigerate for 30 min.
