This has to be the tastiest way to top up on your omega-3.

Our Plant-Based New York Cheesecake doesn’t just hit those sweet-tooth cravings, it packs in a helpful boost of DHA, which is an essential omega-3 fatty acid that you need to have in your diet. This is because it’ involved in many important functions in the body — including heart health, brain function and maintaining normal vision.1

As its most commonly found in oily fish, our Vegan Liquid Omega not only makes life a whole lot easier for those following a plant-based lifestyle, but as it comes in a deliciously fruity tangerine flavour it makes things a lot easier to swallow, too.

A super-simple recipe like this is sure to become a favourite amongst friends and family — they may not even realise it’s vegan!

Serves 6




1) First, place your cashews in a bowl and cover with water. Leave them to soak for 2-3 hours to soften.

2) Then, in a food processor, add the macadamia nuts, chopped dates and desiccated coconut. Blend until all the ingredients are combined and then spoon into a lined round baking tin. Use the back of the spoon to push down the mixture into a solid base.

3) Next, place the soaked cashews into your food processor along with the cream cheese, syrup and lemon juice. Blend until you have a completely smooth mixture.

4) Pour or spoon this mixture on top of the nut base already in then baking tin. Again, use the back of a spoon to create a smooth, even layer.

5) Leave to chill in the fridge for at least 5 hours.

6) To serve, sprinkle with fresh fruit — we went for a tropical mix of blueberries, chopped strawberries and kiwi, and passionfruit — and then drizzle with a generous amount of Vegan Liquid Omega.
