This incredible “Cheeze” Cake is another of the amazing dishes that I discovered during my stay at the Amatara Wellness Resort in Thailand! It makes for such a beautiful dessert and the added bonus is that it packs a healthy punch too!
The cashew nuts not only give this dish a creamy consistency, but also mean it is full of vitamins, minerals, and those all-important antioxidants! Cashew nuts are particularly high in vitamins E and K, as well as copper, phosphorous, zinc, and magnesium!
If you don't regularly include mangos in your diet then you are missing out on a seriously tasty source of nutrients. Some of the most prominent nutrients in this colourful fruit are vitamin A, C and E! Mangos are also a good source of fibre and folic acid.
Ready to make this dish for yourself?!
- 100g oat flour
- 120g almond flour
- 2 tbsp coconut nectar
- A pinch of salt
- 1tsp lime juice
- 83g lime juice
- 300g cashew nuts, soaked overnight and rinsed well
- 317.5g ripe mango
- 120g coconut nectar
- 110g coconut oil
You can first make the crust by combining oat flour, almond flour, coconut nectar, salt and lime juice in a bowl. Mix well and then mould into a circle shape on a Teflex sheet. Leave to set in a covered container in a cool dry place until it becomes dry and crunchy.
The next step is to make the mango cheeze. You can do this by filling by blending the soaked cashew nuts with lime juice, mango, coconut nectar and coconut oil until smooth. You should then press this mixture into a small cake mould and leave in the freezer overnight.
Once the mango cheeze is ready to go, you can place it on top of the base and serve!
