Instructions

For the crust:

  1. Add all the ingredients for the crust to a food processor and process until it becomes a sticky, crumbly texture.
  2. Transfer to a 4-inch spring form cheesecake pan and press the mixture down firmly in the bottom of the pan. Set aside.

For the filling:

  1. Optional: Soak the cashews in filtered/purified water for 30-60 minutes, then rinse and drain.  This will make them soft and the mixture will be extra creamy.
  2. Add all the ingredients for the cheesecake to a Vitamix and blend on high speed until it's creamy and smooth, using the tamper if needed.
  3. Pour the filling into the cheesecake pan on top of the crust and gently tap the pan on the counter top so it settles to the bottom evenly. Set aside.

For the swirl:

  1. Add the strawberries for the swirl to a small bowl. Mash the strawberries with a fork until they are a "thick sauce" consistency.
  2. Stir in the remaining ingredients for the swirl.
  3. Pour the swirl mixture on top of the cheesecake mixture and using the tip of a sharp knife, swirl it in and push it gently down into the top third of the cheesecake mixture.
  4. Put the cheesecake pan in the freezer for approximately 1-2 hours, or until it's hardened.
  5. Remove it from the freezer and let it sit on the counter for about 5-10 minutes to soften a little before cutting.

For the topping:

  1. Save this step until you are ready to serve the cheesecake so it will be fresh.
  2. Add the strawberries for the topping to a small bowl.  Mash the strawberries with a fork until they are a "thick sauce" consistency.
  3. Stir in the remaining ingredients for the swirl.
  4. When ready to serve, evenly pour the topping mixture on top of either the entire cheesecake or drizzle over individual slices are they are cut.
  5. Optional: Garnish with extra sliced organic bananas, organic strawberries or organic shredded coconut.
  6. Store in the refrigerator or freezer until ready to serve because it will become soft if left out at room temperature.
  7. Enjoy!
