For the base

  • 200g hazelnuts
  • 150g oats
  • 100g dates
  •  80g coconut oil

The cheese layer

  • 1 tin coconut milk (full fat)
  • 250g mascarpone or cream cheese
  • 30g dates
  •  1/2 Lililup melon
  • 2 sachets gelatin powder (20g)

The melon layer

  • 1 1/2 Lililup melons
  • 12 sheets of gelatin


  • Start by adding the gelatin powder to 50ml cold water. Set aside.
  • Mash the base ingredients: hazelnuts, oats, dates and coconut oil.
  • You should achieve a fine texture that sticks together when you press it with your fingers.
  • Line the bottom of a 22cm springform pan with baking paper, and spread the base mixture in the tin
  • over it evenly. Set aside.
  • For the cheese layer, put the following in your mixer: coconut milk, cheese, dates and
  • half the melon. Blend until there are no lumps.
  • Take the gelatin, which should now be solid and put it in the microwave for 20 seconds. Only until it turns back to liquid. Do not heat past this point.
  • Put it in the mixture from before and blend again to mix fully.
  • Pour the mixture over the base. I recommend that you strain it to remove bits of
  • date and skin.
  • Cool for 2-3 hours, until it becomes firm.
  • After this time, and after checking it is firm enough, we continue by adding the final layer of
  • melon.
  • Put 12 gelatin sheets in cold water. Set aside.
  • Liquefy the leftover melon half, plus another full melon.
  • Heat half the melon liquid in a saucepan. Once it’s hot, turn the heat off.
  • Take the gelatin, strain it and dissolve in the saucepan with the hot melon.
  • Add the rest of the melon liquid and mix.
  • Pour onto the cheese layer.
  • Leave to cool for 4-6 hours.
  • Garnish, slice and enjoy!
