Vegan Strawberries n Cream Cake

It's been a VERY long time since my last blog post (we're talking years people, years!) and I've been contemplating and over analyzing the perfect comeback post for ages, only further postponing any posts.  Last night I decided what better a way to break my blog silence then with a special birthday treat! No long drawn out explanation of what I have been up to or why I haven't posted in forever, just straight to the goodies.  I whipped these up yesterday and figured they were so good, I just had to share.  Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to you!

Raw Vegan Strawberries n Cream Cake

(Raw, Vegan, Gluten-free)


For the crust
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 4 pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp water  
For the filling
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup nut milk (I used unsweetened almond milk but any non-dairy milk will work)
  • 1.5 tbsp vanilla
  • 1.5 tbsp raw maca powder
For the topping
  • 1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
  • shredded coconut for sprinkling (optional)
  • raw cacao powder for sprinkling (optional)


Place all of the crust ingredients into a blender or food processor, pulse until mixture begins to clump.  Spoon equal amounts of this mixture into each of your 4 jars or ramekins, use the back of the spoon to press the mixture into the bottom of the container.

Next place all of the filling ingredients into a blender or food processor, blend until mixture is smooth and creamy.  Spoon equal amounts of this mixture into each of your jars, layering it on top of the crust.

Top the cream layer with chopped strawberries.  If you desire, sprinkle on additional shredded coconut flakes or dust on cacao powder.

Once prepared you can enjoy these treats immediately or refrigerate and enjoy later.

Makes 4 individual servings
