Instructions

For the date & nut crust

  2. Process until well incorporated.
  3. Press the crust firmly and evenly into a spring form pan and set aside.

For the cheesecake filling

  2. Place cashews into the cup of a nutri bullet or blender.
  3. Pour remaining cheesecake filling ingredients into the blender with the cashews and blend until smooth and creamy. Add additional liquid 1 TBSP at a time if the mixture is too dry. It’ll depend on how much juice there is in the fresh peach.
