This is Chapter Two of “My Mind Is Blown Away By All The Things You Can Do With Cashews”. Chapter One was a dairy-free Caesar dressing and now…this.

No-bake vegan strawberry cheesecake. The idea of dairy-free cheesecake sounds insane, right?

I’ve seen cashew-based vegan “cheesecake” around for a very long time now but to be honest it sounded kind of strange to me and not really appetizing.

Being true to myself = always late with food trends, I finally gave it a try 2 years later and OMG, mind = blown.

How on earth can cashews make the most creamy and smooth and delicious filling?! I do not know but I wanted to eat the whole batch of vegan strawberry cheesecake filling straight out of the bowl.

Good thing I have to share them or I would not be bikini ready for our month in Tel Aviv (plus I have to save room for all the falafel and hummus and shawarma and…all the things, you know!).

Not that I feel ready anyway ah! but I don’t want to push it either 😉

I’m a sucker for strawberry desserts and this vegan strawberry cheesecake is no exception! It’s nutty, it’s fruity and it’s fresh.

I love them most when they’re still a bit frozen, after sitting on the counter for 10/15 minutes. So creamy!

If you’ve been on the fence about baking/cooking cheesecake with cashews, do give these mini cheesecakes a go, you’ll love them!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 8 hours
Servings 12 mini cheesecakes
Calories 226 kcal

Ingredients

Filling:

  • 1 cup raw cashews soaked for at least 3 hours
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 pinch sea salt

Crust:

  • 1 cup raw pecans
  • 125 g medjool dates about 6, 4.5 oz, pitted
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut unsweetened
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  1. To make filling: Drain and rinse raw cashews. Add to a high-speed blender with strawberries, coconut oil, maple syrup, lemon juice, and sea salt. Blend until super smooth and creamy. Set aside. (A normal blender would work too but make sure you soak the cashews more than 3 hours and blend until it's as smooth as possible).
  2. To make crust: add pecans, dates, coconut, coconut oil and sea salt in a food processor. Pulse until “dough” forms and comes away from the edge.

  3. Grease a muffin tin (see notes) with coconut oil. Roll crust dough into 12 round balls. Press each flat between the palm of your hands and press into each muffin tin. Repeat until muffin tin is filled. 
  4. Spoon filling mixture evenly amongst 12 muffin tins, then freeze for 4 hours or overnight. (If freezing overnight, unmold and let sit on the counter for about 15 minutes before serving so it's not too hard).

  5.  To unmold, run a clean knife around the cheesecake bites and lift with a fork or an offset spatula to turn them out.

Recipe Notes

I used a silicon muffin tin like this one to make the unmolding super easy.

    1. Yes I understand your hesitation but honestly, not lumps at all! I’ve made them several times with “normal” blenders and food processors as opposed to high speed and they came out great every time. If you’re afraid your food processor isn’t powerful enough, make sure to soak the cashews longer (overnight for instance) and you’ll be fine 🙂

  1. This is fluffy and delicious! My whole family enjoyed it. I did make some substitutions based on what I had on hand. First, I had to use frozen strawberries, then for the crust I had to use 1/2c raw walnut and 1/2c roasted sunflower seed. I also added about a teaspoon of vanilla paste to the cream mixture. Man, it’s delicious! We did soak the cashews overnight & I used my vitamix for both the cream and the crust. The cream is sooo smooth. You guys, just make it. Thanks For this recipe! ????

  2. I do love everything with strawberry and this vegan strawberry mini cheesecake of yours is so cute and appetizing. My little niece will surely love this.
