My full time job and Spring’s typical weariness (oh and pollen allergy too, urghhh!) won this year too, so I haven’t been able to post as much as I wanted to here on the blog, but I’ll try to make up for this by sharing the recipe of these tasty, super easy and quick to make Strawberry Mini “Cheesecakes”, which also happen to be gluten free, refined sugar free, vegan and raw!
Strawberries are in full season and oh how I love their bright red color standing out in the green of the farmer’s market stalls, it cheers me up 🙂
I made this dessert into small bites, but you can definitely use the same doses to make a cake, using an 8 inch hinged release pan and decorating it how you like it!
Actually, if you have any precious advice on how to decorated desserts, please let me know, as I keep struggling with it … *headwall*
So, keep scrolling down for the recipe and don’t forget to tag me on Instagram if you make it!
Easy and quick recipe to make delicious Vegan Strawberry Mini Cheesecakes, also gluten free, refined sugar free and raw!
- 80 gr peeled almonds
- 300 gr pitted dates
- 4 tbsp coconut flour
- 250 gr unsalted cashews
- 200 gr fresh strawberries
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- 2 tbsp gluten free rice milk
- 1 tbsp coconut / seed oil
- 1 tbsp agave syrup (optional)
- more strawberries for the decoration
In a food processor grind the almonds but not too thinly
In the processor add the pitted dates (if they're particularly dry, soften them in warm water for 15 minutes) and the coconut flour until you have a uniform, solid "dough" that you can work with your hands
Divide the dates dough into 10 parts and make an half inch thick base into cupcake molds. Silicone molds are the best option, otherwise if you have a metal one, place paper cupcakes cups in the molds so that you will remove them more easily
In a blender add cashews, strawberries, lemon juice, coconut flour, gluten free veg milk and the agave syrup (optional) and blend until you have a smooth cream
Pour the cream over the date bases and decorate with more strawberries or anything you want
Freeze for at least 2 hours and remove from freezer at least 30 minutes before serving!
