How to make Vegan Cheesecake with Bananamel Topping (Vegan & GF)


1. To make base: Blend walnuts then add the chopped dates, cocoa powder, agave/maple syrup, and coconut butter or oil and mix. Put in a small dish and chill for 4 hours or freeze for 1 hour.

2. To make filling: Blend silken tofu, vegan plain cream cheese, agave syrup,  xanthin gum, and lemon juice or vanilla extract. Pour over the chilled base and return to the fridge to chill thoroughly before serving.

3. To make topping (optional): Whilst the cheesecake is chilling, blend the Medjool dates until they form a paste (add some hot water if they go into a hard lump). Add the ripe peeled banana, and blend until it forms a smooth ‘caramel’. Take the cheesecake from the freezer, spread the caramel onto it and return to the freezer.
