No Bake Pistachio Cheesecake Recipe
By Peanut Palate
👩🍳Cook Time: 20 mins
½ cup raw walnuts
¼ cup dry rolled oats
¼ soft, pitted dates
⅛ tsp pink salt
¾ cup roasted, salted pistachos shells removed
1 small ripe avocado peeled and pitted
1 can coconut milk, only the cream required see instructions below for the cream
¼ cup pure maple syrup
1 tbsp coconut flour
¼ tsp vanilla extract
¼ cup crushed, roasted pistachios shells removed
1Before starting, make sure the dates are soft. Medjool dates are my favorite to use here! If your dates are not super soft and caramel-like, put them in boiling water for 30 minutes. Drain the water very well before using them.
2Blend together all the ingredients until a crumbly dough forms. Pat this down into the cake pan. You can lightly oil the bottom of the cake pan with refined coconut oil, or use parchment paper to fit the base.
3To get the coconut cream, refrigerate a can of full fat coconut milk overnight. The next day, open up the can and you will notice that there is a thick layer of cream that has risen to the top. This is coconut cream! Scoop all this out to use in the recipe.
4Blend together all ingredients until smooth and creamy, then pour on top of the crust. Top with the extra crushed pistachios.
5Freeze the cake for 6 hours, or until it's solid enough to be removed from the cake pan.
6Remove it from the freezer 15 minutes before serving, to soften.
7Eat fresh, or see below for storage notes!

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
