Energy-Cheesecake

Ingredients

Base:
1 PACK’D Energy sachet (Maca, Cacao, flax, Guarana mix)
1 cup pitted dates
1 cup almonds
1/2 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut

Cheesecake top:
1 PACK’D Energy frozen fruit pack
2 cups cashews, soaked in boiling water for an hour
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
3/4 cup coconut milk (keep in the fridge for an hour and use the cream from the top)
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla essence
juice of a lemon
1 tbsp chia seeds

Method

Begin by lining a loaf tin with cling film or grease proof paper and set to the side.

Add all the ingredients for the base to a heavy duty blender/ food processor and blitz until a sticky dough ball is formed. If it seems too dry add a few drops of water.

Remove the dough and press into the prepared loaf tin evenly.

Rinse and drain the cashews and add to the blender/ food processor along with the coconut oil, lemon juice, maple syrup, vanilla essence and coconut milk.

Blend until smooth and creamy.

Pour the mixture evenly on top of the base, keeping a 1/3 of the mix in the blender.

Press a scattering of berries from the Energy pack into the vanilla cashew cream. Place in the freezer to harden.

Add the remainder of your Energy pack to the blender and process with the remaining cashew cream until smooth and evenly combined.

Spread the Energy mix over the vanilla layer.

Scatter the chia seeds in a diagonal line across the cheesecake and place back in the freezer for 2 hours to harden completely.

When ready to serve, remove from the freezer and slice.

Allow to thaw for 20 minutes or serve straight away if more of an ice-cream cake is desired.
