Raw Cashews, soaked in hot water for an hour
Vanilla Pod, seeds scraped from the pod
Coconut Oil, melted (1/3 cup)
pinch Sea Salt
Olive Oil or oil of choice, for greasing
Grease a 20cm springform tin with olive oil and set aside.
Prepare crust by adding dates to the food processor and blending until it forms into a ball. Remove and set aside.
Place the walnuts and salt into the processor and pulse into a meal. Add dates back in and blend until a loose dough forms - it should stick together when you squeeze a bit between your fingers.
Tip the crust mixture into the springform pan, using your fingers press into the tin to make the base allowing the mix to come up the sides. Set in freezer to firm up.
In a high-speed blender, add all of the filling ingredients and mix until very smooth- up to 2 minutes. If it won't come together or appears chunky, add a touch more pineapple juice or coconut yogurt. Blend until very creamy.
Add the filling to the chilled crust and tap a few times to release any air bubbles. Then loosely cover with plastic wrap or wax paper and freeze until firm - about 4 hours or overnight. Before slicing and serving, let thaw slightly for about 20-30 minutes.
