Oil spray, for greasing

For the crust:

150 g Oreo cookies, finely ground

3 Tbsp coconut milk

For the filling:

150 g cashew nuts, soaked in water for 2-4 hours, then drained

2 small avocados, peeled and stoned

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp vanilla paste or 1 vanilla pod, split lengthways

100 ml agave nectar

Juice of 2 lemons

100 ml coconut oil

Juice of 5 limes, plus the pared zest of 1 for the top (optional)

Slices of kiwi fruit, for the top (optional)

  • Preheat the oven to 180°/gas mark 4 and lightly spray an 18-cm loose-bottomed cake tin with oil spray.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the ground Oreos and coconut milk. Press the mixture into the bottom of the cake tin. Chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  • Put all the ingredients except the lime zest and kiwi fruit into a powerful blender. Process until smooth. Then take the cheesecake base from the fridge and ladle in the green filling.
  • Decorate with curls of pared lime zest, or with overlapping layers of kiwi fruit slices, or both. Chill in the fridge for 2 hours before serving.

Serves 6 to 8

    Shame the recipe doesn’t tell you what to use the oven for!! This instruction is missing in the book too…

    Pudding! Christ you are right! What an idiot I am. Or maybe it was poor proofing. I’ll have to have a look at my original m/s. apologies.
    Hope you like the book otherwise.
