Instructions

  1. Soak Cashews: Soak the cashews for at least 6 hours up to overnight in a bowl of water. When you’re ready to make the cake drain and rinse.
  2. Make Crust: Add the ingredients for the crust to a food processor and blend into a moldable dough. Use your hands to firmly press the dough into an 8-inch springform pan until you have a smooth, even layer.
  3. Blend Filling: Add the drained cashews to a high-speed blender with the rest of the cream ingredients and blend into a very smooth consistency.
  4. Add Filling to Crust: Pour the cream over the crust in the pan. Smooth with a spatula if needed.
  5. Freeze: Place the cake in the freezer for 2 hours up to overnight.
  6. Serve: Let thaw briefly at room temperature or in the fridge for 30-60 minutes before serving.

Notes

For alternative crust options, you can use this simple date and walnut crust or this almond, date and coconut crust. For you a chocolate crust, you could use the crust from this peanut butter pie recipe.

Store leftovers in the freezer in a sealed container for up to 3 months.
