30g flaked almonds

60g dried cranberries

30g cashew nuts

5 fresh dates, pitted

2-3 tbsp of melted Vita Coco Coconut Oil

150g dark chocolate, cherry and nut granola

How To Make:

1. Preheat the oven at 180 fan.

2. Whizz the almonds, cranberries, dates, cashews and granola until crumbly.

3. Line the base of an 8cm spring form tin with parchment paper.

4. Fill the tin with the whizzed mix, level the top and bake for 15 minutes.

5. Allow cooling once baked.

Cream Filling Ingredients:

240ml half fat extra thick cream

225g crème fraiche

50g icing sugar

Decoration Ingredients:

50g grated milk/dark chocolate

1 Punnet of perfect fresh strawberries


1. Cut a ‘v’ on top from the stalk end of each strawberry to create a heart shape. Discard the stalk.

2. For the cream filling, begin to whip the cream with half the sugar until stiff peaks form, making sure you do not over whip.

3. Beat crème fraiche with the remaining sugar until smooth. Once smooth, fold in the puree.

4. Mix together the cream and crème fraiche mixture.

5. Line the tin around the base with acetate paper and spoon half the mixture into the tin.

6. Cleverly place the heart shaped strawberries into the tin. Cover the strawberries with the remaining cream mixture making sure you bury the green stalk. Refrigerate until set.

7. When ready to serve, decorate with fresh strawberries and grated chocolate. Cut across the cheesecake when you serve as this will reveal the strawberry hearts.
