Raw Strawberry Cheesecake

The May 10 day power cleanse starts tomorrow and this is one of our recipes. The focus for the spring/summer cleanse is on raw foods and for so many of us taking dairy out of the diet is hard work. So I played around with this cheesecake for the last year and finally have found my favorite version, little jars of cheesecake that can be frozen, shared or enjoyed at a party. The topping is so good, so don't skip that, you could use any nut for that.

Wish my cleansers luck, we've got a big group and I'll keep you posted on how they are doing. We'll be cleansing mind and body during the 10 days for a truly life changing experience. You know I love those!


Raw Strawberry Cheesecake - A Hey Gorgeous recipe that my cleansers will be enjoying!


3 cups cashews, soaked for 4 hours
½ cup agave
Juice from 1 lemon - about 3 Tb
½ cup coconut oil
1 10 ounce bag frozen organic strawberries - let the bag defrost slightly so that the liquid helps to blend mixture
¼ cup water (more may be needed)

Blend or process until very smooth and creamy, may take a while, pour into small mason jars for individual servings, or into a glass container with lid.


½ cup shaved almonds
¼ cup coconut oil, melted
1 Tb agave

Mix together and refrigerate. When ready to serve, break into small chunks and put about 1 Tb on each serving of cheesecake. Eat within 3 days or store in the freezer, you can defrost before eating.

This recipe makes a lot! I suggest eating in about 1/4 cup servings and freezing so you have a quick treat to pull out. This is a great way to see that dairy is not the only thing that tastes oh so good.
