Ingredients

crust

  • 1/2 C whole raw walnuts
  • 3 pitted medjool dates
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • pinch of sea salt

filling

Instructions

  1. Pulse walnuts in a food processor until it’s a coarse meal. Then add pitted medjool dates, unsweetened shredded coconut, and sea salt and continue processing until it’s a fine meal. When you pinch the mixture it should stick together.
  2. Cut strips of parchment paper approximately 1/4” wide and 4” long and place them in the cups of a mini muffin pan. Then press about 1 1/2 tablespoon of crust mixture into each cup on top of the paper. Place the tray in the freezer while you prepare the filling.

  3. Zest the lime and set it aside, as it will be used as the topping.
  4. Drain the cashews from the soaking water and rinse them under fresh water. Let them drain and then add to a high-powered blender. Combine with the remaining filling ingredients until very smooth.
  5. Pour the filling on top of the crusts to the edge of the mini muffin cups and sprinkle a little bit of lime zest on top.
  6. Freeze for 2 hours until mostly solid. If you leave them longer and they fully freeze in the pan you’ll need to let the pan thaw for a few minutes before you can lift them out. Gently lift the paper tabs to remove the cheesecakes from the cups. 

Recipe Notes

Store cheesecakes in the freezer between layers of parchment paper.
