Remove the pips from the Medjool Dates and cut them into quarters. Place the dates into a jug and fill with hot top water. Allow to steep for 30 minutes before draining.
Place the dates, almonds and desiccated coconut into the food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles a paste.
Pour the mixture into a 8 inch Springform pan that has been lined with baking paper and greased well. Press the mixture down with the bottom of a glass so that it is compacted and even. Place this base in the fridge to set.
Next drain the cashews and rinse them well. Place them into a food processor with the fresh lime juice and zest, the coconut oil, coconut milk and maple syrup. Process until well combined and the mixture is light and creamy.
Pour the cheesecake mixture over the base and freeze.
To serve, remove from the freezer 30 minutes before, cut into slices and serve.
