METHOD

Turn the oats a coconut flakes into a flour and set aside.  Blend the soaked dates with half of their soaking water until silky smooth. Blend with all other ingredients, except coconut oil, until a soft dough is formed. Add more date water if the mix is dry and of too wet add a tbsp coconut flour. Drizzle over the coconut oil and pulse again to combine. Roll out in between two teflex sheets.  Then Press into a lined tart tin or mini tart cases and leave to set in the fridge. Set aside while you make the topping. 

 
 
FOR THE CHEESECAKE CREAM 

The first step is to ferment the cashew nuts.  Rinse them very well then blend with 100ml  filtered water until smooth.  Add two tbsp kombucha. Leave in a glass bowl covered overnight somewhere warm.  Should be light and fluffy.

When ready blend in the remaining ingredients, apart from the coconut oil and butter, until smooth.  Stream in the coconut oil and butter at the end.  Taste for seasoning and pour into the tart case.

Leave to set in the fridge for at least 4 hours or in the freezer to speed up the process.
    

FOR THE ALMOND MILK
  

Blend the almonds and water for at least 30 seconds in a high power blender. 
Strain the whole mix through a nut milk bag. Reserve the pulp.

Pour the strained milk into the blender and blend with all other ingredients.
