Let’s Do This….

Dairy Free Lemon ‘Cheeze’cake Recipe

Ingredients
Base
  • 1 cup of almonds
  • 1 cup of oats
  • 1 cup of desiccated coconut
  • 1/4 cup of flaxmeal
  • 2 tbs Maple syrup
  • 3 tbs lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
Cheezecake
  • 1 1/2 cups of soaked cashews
  • 1 can of coconut milk from the fridge
  • 1/4 maple syrup
  • Juice of 5-6 lemons
  • Zest of 5 lemons
Directions
  1. Before you start anything, Place your can of coconut milk in the fridge and soak the cashews for at least 4 hours in filtered water.
  2. Start by adding all of the base ingredients into a food processor and blitz until the mixture in combined well. It’s an idea to mostly pulse it so it doesn’t get too smooth you want it a little chunky.
  3. Pour the mixture into the cake tin and press it all down until it forms a base. Place it into the fridge.
  4. Remove the can of coconut milk from the fridge. The only part you want it the thick part of the milk that has separated at the top. Scoop this out and place it into a blender
  5. Add in the remainder of the cheezecake ingredients into a blender and blend on high speed until you get a smooth consistency.
  6. Pour this part of the mixture on top of the base. if it has little bubbles in it gently drop the tin on a surface a few times to get them out.
  7. Then place it into the freezer and leave for 8-10 hours.
  8. When you are ready to serve/eat remove from the freezer for 30 minutes before serving.
  9. Enjoy!

This is the perfect summer cake for a little get together with friends, a garden party or for yourself to indulge in! I hope you and whoever you may share it with enjoy it. Comment below and let me know what you think as well as what plantbased, dairy free cake recipe you’d like from me next…

    Your cake looks delicious! I wanna try it. I am on a gluten, dairy, sugar free diet and your recipe comes on hand! Can you please tell what size is your cake tin? Thank you!!

      Hey Mihaela

      Thank you so much! I’m so happy to hear you are looking after yourself by not having all of that in your diet!!

      So I used an 8 inch tin (I should pop that in the recipe lol) You can get away with using slightly smaller, the cake will just be a little taller but no bigger 8 is the biggest for this recipe.

      I hope you love it as much as I do. I’d love to hear how you get on. If you are not already following me on Insta you can drop me a message there @honestlyalessandra or here if you’d like.

      Enjoy lovely and have a great day.

      Lots of love
