Mango Cinnamon & Raspberry Raw Cheesecake

It's so much fun for me to create healthy takes on dessert recipes that were loaded with sugar and unhealthy additives. Today I've made a scrumptious raw gluten and lactose free cheesecake with mango, cinnamon and raspberries. It leaves you feeling nourished and satisfied without the aftermath of sugar and dairy overload. You can make this recipe with any fruits, just don't forget to add our Cinnamon for extra health benefits and sweetness.

Base
 2 g Alba cinnamon
150 g activated cashews 150g activated macadamia nuts  
100 g desiccated coconut
75 g dried apricots
pinch of sea salt
50 g melted cold pressed coconut oil
Middle 
200 g puréed raspberries
1 mango peeled and puréed 
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 teaspoon sea salt
200 g natural honey
1 vanilla pod
200 g macadamia nuts
200 g cashew nuts
250 g melted cold pressed coconut oil
Method
1. Soak the macadamia and cashew nuts overnight to activate.
2. Line a round cake tin with baking paper
3. For the base place the nuts, cinnamon and coconut into a food processor and blitz until it becomes a crumb like consistency. Add in the apricots, salt and coconut oil and pulse until the mixture just comes together.
4. Press the base mix firmly into the base of the cake tin. 
5. Refrigerate for a least one hour so it firms up.
6. Combine the cashews, macadamias, lemon juice, cinnamon salt, honey and vanilla in the food processor and process until smooth and creamy.
7. Add the melted coconut oil and blend until just combined.
8. Split the cheesecake mixture into 2 in large mixing bowls.
9. Pour the mango puree into one of the bowls and the raspberry purée into the other and mix well to combine.
10. Pour the mango mix on top of the base and evenly spread out
11. Gently pour the raspberry mix on top and swirl once or twice with a spoon to give a pretty effect.
12. Freeze for 2 hours, or until firm.
13. Cut while frozen and let it defrost for around 30 mins.
