If it’s weekend, it’s time for a new cake. I wish I had fresh fruits, but it goes amazingly with frozen fruits as well. I have used my favorite base for this vegan forest fruits cake as it is very easy to do and it tastes great. It’s super healthy and delicious.
I have made 2 individual portions in 2 small mini baking tins of 10cm in diameter.
For the crust:
- 100 gr of walnuts
- 5 pitted dates
- 2 tbsp of coconut flakes
- 1 tbsp of water
For the filling:
- 100 gr of cashew
- 200ml of coconut milk
- 1 tbsp of vanilla extract
- 4 tbsp of coconut oil
- 1 tbsp of maple syrup (you can use honey, agave, stevia or any other sweetener you like)
For the topping:
- 200gr frozen forest fruits (you can use fresh fruits if you have)
- Juice of half a lemon
- 1/4 tbsp of agar agar powder
- 1 tbsp coconut nectar
I have covered the baking tins with baking paper and then I put in the crust, by arranging it with my fingers. For the crust of the cheesecake I have mixed the walnuts, dates and coconut flakes in the S shape blade food processor. After all the ingredients were mixed together, I have added also the table spoon of water, which made the composition a bit sticky.
For the filling, I have blended the cashew together with the coconut milk, coconut oil, vanilla extract and the maple syrup until very smooth. I have divided the composition in half. On e half I have mixed with a few forest fruits in order to have this pretty purple color. I have added over the crust a layer of simple coconut mixture, placed in the freezer for about 15 minutes, then I have added the purple forest fruit layer, placed in the freezer for another 15 minutes and finally I have added the rest of the coconut mixture. All in the freezer for about 1 hour.
For the topping I have mixed the fruits with the lemon juice, coconut nectar and the agar agar. I have Mixed continuously for about 5 minutes over heat, then I let it cool down and topped the mini cakes.
It looks like a lot of trouble with making the 3 layers, but it actually it’s very simple, you just need to have a little patience and believe me, you will love the end result.
