raw coconut and banana cheesecake

This raw vegan coconut and banana cheesecake is full of nourishing ingredients and is suitable for those following a vegan lifestyle. The key to the delicious base is to pulse the walnuts long enough so they turn into a crumbly texture but not so long that they become nut butter.


1 cup raw walnuts

1 ½ tsp virgin coconut oil

sprinkle of cinnamon

1 cup organic coconut cream

1 large overripe banana

1 tbsp maple syrup

1/3 cup raw cacao nibs

2 tbsp coconut flakes


Line a 18cm springform cake tin with parchment paper. Pulse the walnuts, cinnamon and coconut oil in a food processor until it reaches a crumb consistency.

Scoop the crumb out the processor and press firmly to the base of the pan. Wash and dry the processor and add the coconut cream, banana and yacon syrup and pulse until creamy and smooth.

Spread the filling over the base and sprinkle the coconut flakes and cacao nibs over it. Place the tin in the freezer for at least an hour until the edges are firm. It is even better if frozen for longer. Overnight is ideal. Remove from the freezer and take the cake out the tin and slice into small slices.
