Whatever you want...nuts, berries, coconut flakes, cream, 85% cocoa dark chocolate...

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 170C/150C fan/gas 3 and grease an appropriate tin. Grind the nuts with a food processor, add the coconut, ground almonds or almond/seed mix and butter, and rub into a dough with your fingers. This is an important step so spend some time on this. Press the dough into the tin base evenly to a thickness of about 5mm. Bake for 5-10 mins or until starting to turn a golden colour. remove and allow to cool completely.
  2. Mix the filling ingredients together in a large bowl...cream cheese, yoghurt, coconut cream, egg, Stevia drops and vanilla essence. Spoon into the cooled base and return to the oven for 20-30 minutes. It is ready when the mixture moves away from the base and the filling has a custard-like quality.
  3. Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours to firm up before serving.

Decorate and enjoy with organic cream or just as it comes.
