For the crust simply blend all the ingredients in a food processor.

Press the dough into a loaf pan.

In a small pan heat the raspberries with the coconut sugar until all the sugar disolves.

Let cool down for some minutes. Then pour over the crust and freeze.

For the cheesecake layer, blend all the ingredients together until smooth and creamy.

Put the mixture over the raspberry jam layer and freeze again.

Coconut tutorial – Works a 100% !

Since many of you were asking on how I open a coconut I finally made a tutorial on how to open a coconut in 5 steps.

Feel free to try at home :)

 EQUIPMENT

coconut tutorial

STEP 1

First step, take your screwdriver and your hammer. Make three holes, exactly where the three eyes of the coconut are. It works best if you are sitting on the floor  putting the coconut between your feet. Once you have the holes pour out the coconut water into a bowl. (yes you can drink that :))

 STEP 2

Once the coconut is empty, take your pen and mark the equator around the bowl. This is the line where you are going to hit the coconut.

STEP 3

Now take the coconut bowl again between your feet and take your hammer. Slightly hit the coconut around the marked line. (you won’t hit too hard!) Allow this process time. You’ll need to hit that coconut more than 4 rounds around. Do the hammering as long as you see a crack along the line. When the crack is around you can open the coconut with your hands.

STEP 4

….and ready to be filled with Nicecream :)
