Ingredients

  • cup raw pecan halves
  • 4 Medjool dates pitted
  • 2 cups whole raw cashews soaked and water removed
  • 2 Tbsp 100% pure maple syrup
  • cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • Pinch of coarse sea salt
  • ½ cup freeze-dried California Strawberries
  • ½ cup fresh-sliced California Strawberries
  • 6 medium California Strawberries sliced in half, for topping

Instructions

  • Using a high-powered blender or food processor, pulse pecans and dates together until ground. Add 1 tablespoon pecan-date mixture into each serving jar, and press into bottom to form crust.
  • In same blender or food processor, add cashews, maple syrup, almond milk and sea salt. Blend slowly at first, and increase speed until mixture is completely smooth and creamy.
  • Spoon 2 tablespoons of the mixture into each serving jar, and spread to form even layer.
  • Add ½ cup freeze-dried and ½ cup fresh-sliced strawberries to blender; blend with remaining cheesecake mixture until strawberries are fully incorporated and mixture is smooth.
  • Divide strawberry-cashew mixture evenly into 8, 4 oz mason jars and spread to form layer; top each mini cheesecake with half a strawberry.
  • Chill in refrigerator for at least 15 minutes to set; keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

Notes

We recommend soaking raw cashews in hot water for at least 15 minutes, or overnight.
