Raw Frozen Strawberry Dessert

Raw Frozen Strawberry Dessert

My goal this past month was to make a really good raw vegan cheesecake. That hasn’t happened yet. But in the process, I did make this delicious raw frozen strawberry dessert!

So instead of calling this a cheesecake failure I decided to call it something else and make it a recipe post.

To Start

The very first thing I would do is prep. Start by soaking cashews. You can soak these overnight but I think I only soaked them for 10 to 20 minutes. I suggest soaking the cashews while making the crust.

You will also pit and soak the dates. You don’t need to soak these for very long. Maybe 10 minutes? You just want them to be soft. It’s also helpful to soak them in warm water.

Blend the dates and walnuts in a food processor. It doesn’t need to be perfectly blended. There can still be date and walnut pieces

Spread evenly on an 8 by 8-inch pan. The crust layer will be thin. If you want a thicker crust double the recipe.

Place in the fridge to cool while you make the filling. Also, no need to be wasteful and use parchment paper like I did. Dates are surprisingly easy to clean off, so I don’t know what I was thinking.

To make the filling drain the water form the cashews and add to a food processor with all other ingredients. You have the option to wait to blend in the strawberries if you want more strawberry “chunks”. I used 10 strawberries but you can also use more.

Spread the filling over the crust and freeze. Thats really it.

This recipe is easy to make with minimal mess. It just takes a little extra waiting time. Waiting for the dates and cashews to soak and then waiting for the dessert to cool down in the freezer for a couple of hours.

About This Recipe

I recently moved in with my grandmother. I have been doing most of the cooking and she’s happy to eat anything I decide to make. She is diabetic and has a big sweet tooth. So we have been looking for alternatives to things like soda and ice cream. She handed me a recipe to a chia pudding that consisted of a lot of ingredients and in the past, I had also made one with cocoa powder, but I have been recently craving plain old vanilla. This easy vanilla coconut chia pudding is delicious and super quick to make.

This recipe only consists of 4 ingredients. Canned coconut milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. I showed the exact brands that I have in the photo below but honestly it doesn’t really matter.

I will note a couple of things though. The coconut milk I am using to my knowledge is unsweetened. You also want to make sure there are no chunks and that it is liquid as shown in the photo below on the left. The vanilla extract I am using is alcohol free (you can find that at Trader Joes if you have one near you) and I am using 100% pure maple syrup.

Start

So you want to start by adding your chia seeds to your coconut milk. Stir until all chia seeds are evenly spread and none are clumping together or sticking to the bottom of the container. Also, I recommend using a clear container so you are able to see.

I am reusing an empty Talenti jar because it is clear, the perfect size, and it’s cute too.

The photo above shows chia seeds clumping at the bottom. So you want to make sure you break these up.

After your chia seeds are evenly spread throughout the coconut milk you can now add your maple syrup and vanilla extract. And Stir.

Now you you just leave it in the fridge over night, unless you’re impatient. Then a couple of hours is fine too. Enjoy with your favorite fruit or just on its own!
