Raw Vegan Strawberry Cheesecake

When it comes to desserts… Raw Vegan treats are my weakness (or strength… however you want to look at it!) This is a simple raw cheesecake with a walnut date crust and a strawberry cashew filling, topped with fresh sliced strawberries! This is by far the best thing i've ever made! It's also a lot of fun to make, and not difficult at all. 

RECIPE:

For the crust:

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup dates

For the cheesecake layer:

  • 2 cups cashews
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a food processor, process dates and walnuts until a dough like consistency forms
  2. In a pie dish, grease the bottom with coconut oil
  3. Press down the crust firmly to cover the entire dish
  4. Place in freezer for at least one hour
  5. In a food processor or high speed blender (I used my Vitamix) blend all ingredients for the cheesecake layer until completely smooth
  6. spread cheesecake layer evenly over the entire pie
  7. garnish with fresh cut strawberries or any other berries!
  8. Store in the fridge for at least one hour before cutting
  9. Store in the freezer for up to one month
