200g raw cashew nuts, soaked at least 6 hours
3 large semi-dried figs
1 tsp cacao powder
1 tsp cinnamon powder
a pinch of Himalayan salt
3 small ripe bananas + sliced bananas for garnish
1 tbsp thick Greek yogurt
1 tsp agar agar or gelatin powder, melted in a tbsp of warm water
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil
a pinch of turmeric powder

Wash and drain soaked cashew nuts. For the crust, take 1/3 of the nuts and place in your food processor along with figs, cacao, cinnamon and salt. Blend until combined. Pour the mixture into a container lined with a glad-wrap. Press evenly and firmly with a spatula. For the filling, put the rest of the nuts and other ingredients in your food processor and blend until thick and smooth. Pour onto the crust and spread evenly with a spatula. Garnish with sliced bananas and place in the freezer for a few hours or overnight to set. Take it out of the freezer and cut into a desired portion size (I had 8 squares). Have your knife in warm water to make it easy to cut if you need. It is best to keep the cheesecake in the freezer.
