  • 1 cup cashews
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp lemon juice


  • 3 cups cashews soaked for 1 – 2 hours
  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup xylitol
  • 1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
  • 1/2 cup beetroot juice optional, just for colour

Clementine gelato

  • 2 cups cashews
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups almond milk
  • 1 cup clementine juice
  • 1 tsp clementine zest
  • 1/8 tsp salt



  • In a food processor, first process cashews to flour.
  • Add remaining ingredients and process again.
  • Press into the bottom of a 9" Springfield pan and place in fridge whilst working on filling.


  • Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth.
  • Pour on top of the base.
  • Place in the freezer to set. Once it’s set, the cheesecake can be moved to, and stored in, the fridge until ready to eat.

Clementine gelato

  • Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth. Taste for sweetness; you may need to add extra agave if your clementines weren’t that sweet.
  • Pour mixture into a rectangular container and place in the freezer to set. Once set, pass through a juicer with a homogenizing attachment on. Alternatively, you can pour the mixture (unfrozen) into an ice cream maker.


Almond milk is made by blending 1 cup of almonds with 3 cups of water and straining through a nut milk bag or fine-mesh sieve.
