Strawberry Vegan Cheesecake

One evening last week, M arrived home from work laden with punnets of strawberries, raspberries, tayberries and gooseberries from Cobbs Farm Shop in Hungerford.  I was literally jumping for joy!  Without a shadow of a doubt, the Cobbs Farm berries are the best I’ve ever tasted.  They are so flavourful and sweet… even the gooseberries can be eaten straight from the punnet without the need for any sweetener at all!

I quickly got to work rinsing and freezing the berries so that we can enjoy them in the months to come (and to save me from devouring them all in one go!)  I did, however, keep back one punnet of strawberries as I had a special dessert in mind for them…

Strawberry Cashew Cheese Cake

Yes, I made another cashew “cheese” cake! 🙂  This time, I filled it with a vanilla and lemon cashew “cheese”, and used the strawberries as decoration round the edge of the cake and on top.

And how was it? Well, it was absolutely delicious! It had a beautiful smooth texture and the flavour was spot on. I had hoped that it would last us at least a couple of weeks (stored in the freezer) but no, within 3 days it was all gone! I guess that’s a sign of how much we loved it. It also received great feedback from Lil’ L’s best friend (another one of my little testers… I’m building up an army of them 😉 )

The cake is really simple to make.  If you’d like to give it a try yourself, here’s how I made it:

  3. Oh yum! Strawberries and cream, raw cheesecake style! This looks for little ones 🙂 And Cobbs Farm is fantastic! I’ve been there when I was in Marlborough years ago and when driving back from Bath the other day thought about it again.

    • I’ve never actually been to Cobbs Farm myself but I really want to go! Maybe I could combine it with a day out to Marlborough too. I love that town! Lil’ L thinks that Marlborough College looks like Hogwarts and he want to go there when he’s older. I better get saving!

  4. Sharon, thanks so much for sharing this with us at Raw Foods Thursdays. It looks absolutely delicious! It has been so long since I’ve had a raw cheesecake, so I’ll be making this soon! I’ll be highlighting this beauty at tomorrow’s RFT. I hope you’ll be back!

    • Thank you so much Heather. I’m so happy that you like it ♥
      I love RFT and will definitely enter again if I come up with a new raw creation. In the meantime, I’ll keep enjoying all your wonderful posts 🙂

    Just made this and it’s in the freezer. Can’t wait! Also my first time using agave nectar instead of maple syrup. Exciting!
