Ingredients

Cookie Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups crushed golden sandwich cookies
  • ΒΌ cup coconut oil melted

Lemon Cheesecake Filling

  • 1 cup So Delicious Dairy Free Lemon Swirl Frozen Mousse
  • 1/4 cup coconut cream
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2/3 cup roasted unsalted cashews soaked for at least 1 hour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil melted
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch sea salt

Instructions

  • First, boil 2 cups of water. Place cashews in a mason jar and pour boiling water over nuts until they are completely covered. Let soak for 1 hour.

Make the Crust

  • Grease a mini cheesecake pan, then set aside.
  • Mix melted coconut oil and cookie crumbs together until well combined.
  • Drop 1 tablespoon scoops of the crust into each well of the mini cheesecake pan and press the crumbs evenly around the bottom of the well.
  • Repeat with each well until all the cookie mixture has been used.
  • Put the mini cheesecake pan in the freezer for the crusts to harden, around 15 minutes.

Make the Filling

  • Add a heaping tablespoon of the Lemon Swirl Mousse to each mold in an even layer and place pan back in the freezer while prepping the cheesecake filling.
  • Drain the cashews.
  • Put all the ingredients in the order listed into a high-powered blender.
  • Turn blender on low, gradually increasing to high speed. Blend until all ingredients are combined and mixture is smooth, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove pan from the freezer, then add enough lemon filling to each well to reach the top edge. Smooth with the back of a spoon and tap the pan against a hard surface to release the air out of each well.
  • Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight. Enjoy!
