Easy Peasy Strawberry Cheesecake

Prep time 20 minutes

Cook time  15 minutes

Serves 8

Ingredients

For the base:

75g Ground Almonds

75g Cashew Nuts

30g Butter

1 tbsp Stevia

For the topping:

200g Soft Cheese

150ml Double Cream

150g Strawberries

1 tbsp Stevia

1 tsp Vanilla Essence

Preparation Method: 

  1. Preheat your oven to 180ºC/160ºC fan (350ºF/320ºF fan).
  2. Grease and line a tin with baking paper (no need to line the sides).
  3. Place the cashew nuts in a food processor and pulse until they resemble breadcrumbs.
  4. Add the cashew nuts, ground almonds, the melted butter and 1 tbsp stevia to a bowl and mix with a spoon or your fingers until a crumbly mixture forms. Do not over mix as you will end up with a dough.
  5. Pour into the lined tin and gently press down and level. Do not press down too much as you will lose the crumbly texture
  6. Bake in the oven for 5-10 mins until the edges start to turn golden brown and then remove and cool (you can stick it in the freezer to be speedy).
  7. Puree the strawberries. In a bowl, beat together the soft cheese, 1 tbsp stevia, vanilla essence and three-quarters of the puréed strawberries.
  8. In a separate bowl whisk together the cream until it starts to stiffen, but is still soft.
  9. Gently fold the whipped cream into the soft-cheese mixture.
  10. Spoon over the chilled base.
  11. Drizzle over the remaining strawberry purée and chill in the fridge for a couple of hours to set.
