Recipe's preparation

    Vanilla water
  1. Place vanilla bean pieces and water into mixing bowl and blend 1 min/speed 9. Transfer into a sealable storage jar and place into the refrigerator until needed. Clean and dry mixing bowl.

  2. Almond milk
  3. Place almonds and filtered water into mixing bowl and blend 1 min/speed 8.

  4. Place a nut milk bag or a couple pieces of muslin cloth over a jug, then pour mixture into it and allow to strain. Place almond milk into refrigerator to store until use. 

  5. Transfer almond pulp into a storage container and place in the refrigerator to use in other recipes. Clean and dry mixing bowl.

  6. Tirawmisu cheesecake: Choc-almond crust
  7.  Place almonds and cacao powder into mixing bowl and chop Turbo/1 sec/2 times.

  8. Add dates and blend 1 min/speed 9. If the mixture feels dry and crumbly, add more dates or a drop of water and blend for a further 10 sec/speed 9, or until a smooth consistency is achieved (adding more dates or water as required).

  9. Add cacao nibs and mix 3 sec/speed 3.

  10. Transfer mixture into an ungreased springform cake tin (25-30 cm) and press down to form an even base, then set aside.

  11. Tirawmisu cheesecake: Filling
  12. Place cashews, brewed espresso, reserved Almond milk, reserved Vanilla water and agave syrup into mixing bowl and blend 2 min/speed 8, or until a smooth consistency is achieved.

  13. Add coconut oil and mix 1 min/speed 8.

  14.  Take a ¾ cup of the filling and stir in the cacao powder. Set aside.

  15. Transfer remaining filling in mixing bowl over the base in springform cake tin, then forcefully dollop the reserved cacao-filling mixture into the cake tin. Using a bamboo skewer, gently swirl figure 8 patterns through the filling to create a marbled effect.

  16. Sprinkle over cacao nibs (optional) then place into the freezer for 2 hours before placing into the refrigerator overnight. Take care not to leave cake in the freezer for too long.

  17. Using a sharp knife, run around the edge of the cheesecake, then release the springform tin and remove cake completely. Cut into slices and serve.
