        1. Preheat oven to 170⁰C. Place every dry ingredient for the crust in a food processor. Process well until it reaches the consistency of flour.
        2. Add melted coconut oil into the food processor and process until it becomes like wet sand.
        3. Press the mixture against the sides and the bottom of the tart tin. Bake it for about 16-18 min or or until baked through. After it has cooled down, put it in the freezer for 30 minutes to an hour.
        4. Put every ingredient for the plain cheesecake layer in a high-speed blender and blend well. Add more sweetener or lemon juice if you want. Layer it over the crust and freeze it until set.
        5. Repeat the same process for the cherry cheesecake layer. Freeze it overnight.
        6. Remove the cake from the tin and garnish with fresh cherries and whipped coconut.
