Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Crust:

  • Press the crust mixture into the bottom of a springform pan or a cake pan lined with parchment paper. Make sure it is evenly distributed and firmly packed. Set aside.

  1. Prepare the Filling:

  • In a high-speed blender or food processor, combine the soaked and drained cashews, melted coconut oil, maple syrup (or agave nectar), lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Blend until smooth and creamy.

  • Add the 1 cup of fresh strawberries and blend again until the mixture is well combined and smooth.

  • Pour the filling over the prepared crust and smooth it out with a spatula.

  1. Chill the Cheesecake:

  • Place the cheesecake in the freezer for at least 4 hours, or until it is firm and set.

  1. Prepare the Topping:

  • In a bowl, toss the 1 cup of fresh strawberries with the maple syrup or agave nectar, if using. Arrange the strawberries on top of the cheesecake.

  1. Serve:

  • Once the cheesecake is set, remove it from the freezer and let it sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes before slicing.

  • Slice and enjoy!

Tips:

  • You can customize the sweetness level by adjusting the amount of maple syrup or agave nectar to your taste.

  • For a more intense strawberry flavor, you can add a few extra strawberries to the filling mixture.
