+ Well Nourished | Raw Vegan Strawberry Cheesecake

Raw Strawberry Cheesecake

Valentines Day is upon us, so I thought I’d share this easy to prepare low-fructose, gluten free raw vegan strawberry cheesecake.  Nothing says I love you like chocolate and strawberries…or this delicious, healthy dessert.

A treat that is also nourishing!
Yep, this is so healthy, you serve it up to your loved one for breakfast!  The base is a combination of nuts and flaxseed for healthy oils, minerals and fibre.  The cacao contributes antioxidant rich chocolate flavour and the coconut products are antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and healing to the digestive system.  The filling is a dairy free combination of cashew nuts (more essential minerals, protein, fats and fibre), highly nutritious coconut water and antioxidant-rich strawberries.

Makes 4 small serves


80 gram (½ cup) of hazelnut meal
15 gram (2 tablespoons) of flaxseed (ground linseeds)
15 gram (2 tablespoons) of raw cacao powder
15 gram (2 tablespoons) of desiccated coconut
30 gram (2 tablespoons) of coconut oil
65 gram (3 tablespoons) rice malt syrup (you could substitute with maple syrup)
Strawberry cream filling

150 gram (1 cup) of raw cashew nuts soaked for 2-3 hours in water and drained
150 grams fresh hulled strawberries (the more flavoursome the strawberries, the better this will be)
1 tablespoon of white chia seeds
1 tablespoon of rice malt syrup or maple syrup
1 teaspoon of vanilla powder or essence
3 tablespoons of coconut water

For the base…

  1. In a bowl or food processor, combine your hazelnut meal, flaxseed meal, raw cacao and coconut.
  2. Add the coconut oil and rice malt syrup and mix until well combined and the mixture holds together when pressed.

For the filling…

  1. Process the soaked cashews until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add the strawberries and process again.
  3. Add the chia, vanilla, and  coconut water and process until smooth.
  4. Assemble in a small glass by pressing the chocolate base into the glass and top with the strawberry cream.
  5. Chill until set, garnish with heart shaped strawberry halves and serve immediately.

    Can I use macadamia nuts instead of cashews?? If so do they need soaking too? Thanks!

“I downloaded your ebooks after hearing you speak at the Health and Wellness Summit in Melbourne. Love them, life changing… Don’t stop! Thank you for getting the whole food message out there, I certainly heard it.” Melanie

“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke

“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose

This page has become my little bible hehe! Thank you so much for all the detail you give. It’s absolutely wonderful!” Sky
