Lemon Strawberry Cashew “Cheesecake”

This is a great birthday cake–you have to plan ahead with soaking the cashews, but it takes about 5 minutes after that.

Crust:
1 cup almonds
½ cup medjool dates (preferably pitted, the gooier the better)
1/8 tsp sea salt

Filling:
1½ cups raw cashews, soaked overnight
juice from 2 lemons
1¼ tsp vanilla extract
1/3 coconut oil (melted)
1/3 cup maple syrup
2½ cups fresh strawberries

Crust: blend ingredients in food processor until it’s crumbly. Don’t overblend or the oil will separate from the almonds. Press into a parchment lined 7” springform pan.

Filling:
Blend everything except strawberries in the food processor. Pour half the lemon filling into the crust. Place a layer of sliced strawberries around outer edges of the pan to make it pretty, and put in freezer.
Meanwhile, blend one cup of strawberries into the remaining filling in the food processor, then pour over the first layer. Put in freezer 2-3 hours to set.

Garnish with more strawberries: excellent for birthdays, great with champagne and amazing for breakfast!
