Tips on how to make a delicious Raw Strawberry Cheesecake
Use fresh organic strawberries if you can. Fair warning, if you do opt for frozen strawberries, the cold temperature of the strawberries may solidify the coconut oil and make it harder to blend. You can also let the strawberries defrost for few minutes before blending them with the rest of the ingredients.
For the crust, I used my favorite Wildly Organic Walnuts, and for the “cheesecake part” I used the Wildly Organic Almonds. However, any nuts should work, but almonds (or cashews) tend to be a little creamier. I also like the use of dates for the crust, for natural sweetness and for the consistency of the crust.
I prefer to use Wildly Organic nuts in the cake, not only because they are high-quality and healthy, but also because they are already soaked; so I was able to shorten my prep time before making the cake.
The secret ingredient
The cake’s most important ingredient, give it the most creamy and smooth texture, is the Wildly Organic Centrifuged Coconut Oil. This oil is made from fresh coconut cream that passes through several centrifuges, separating the oil and the water. It produces a very mild tasting coconut oil that has a creamy and smooth consistency, perfect for this raw cheesecake recipe.
Not a strawberry fan? You can replace the strawberries with different seasonal fruits, like blueberries, peaches, raspberries, or blackberries.
Skip turning your oven on this summer, stay cool by making this easy and refreshing raw strawberry cheesecake.
