This beautiful allergy friendly cheesecake tastes just as good as it looks!

Servings: 8 People
For the biscuit base:
- 150 g ginger nut biscuits
- 150 g Digestive Biscuits
- 40 g Coconut Oil Melted
- 30 g Vitalite Melted
For the Filling
- 200 g Dairy Free Cream Cheese I used Violife
- 175 g Dairyfree Raspberry Yoghurt
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 tbsp Raspberry Powder I used Nutriseed
- 3 tbsp Icing sugar
- Pulp of Passionfruit
For the Topping
- 350 g Fresh Raspberries
- Seeds of Pomegranate
- 25 g Dark Chocolate Grated or melted & piped into shapes
Line the bottom and sides of a 7 inch loose bottom cake tin with bake-o-glide or greaseproof paper.
In a food processor add the ginger nut biscuits, digestives and blitz to crumbs. Pour in the melted coconut oil/Vitalite mixture and pulse until the crumbs are coated.
Put in the cake tin and press down with the back of a spoon. You can refrigerate for an hour or two until set before adding the topping but its not really necessary!
In a separate bowl whisk the Koko yoghurt, Violife cream cheese and vanilla extract together until light and fluffy. Add the icing sugar & raspberry powder and whisk again before stirring in the passionfruit pulp.
Spread over the biscuit base and decorate with the raspberries, pomegranate seeds and chocolate curls. Then just store in the fridge until you want to serve it!
