kind eats: frozen strawberry lemon cheesecake



Kind lifer Stephanie posted this recipe for a frozen strawberry lemon cheesecake and it looks delicious…so pretty and fresh-looking! I haven’t tried it yet, but it looks like a great summer treat. Fresh strawberries are in season too…yum! The original recipe called for raw honey, but I’ve substituted agave below:

Servings: 8


1 cup(s) almonds
1 cup(s) Medjool dates
1/4 tsp. sea salt

3 cup(s) raw unsalted cashews, soaked overnight and drained
1 cup(s) strawberries
2/3 cup(s) coconut oil
2/3 cup(s) agave
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp. vanilla extract

1 cup(s) strawberries
1 tbsp. agave
1/4 cup(s) orange juice


1. To make the crust, pulse almonds, dates, and sea salt in a food processor until well combined and crumbly. Press the crust into the bottom of an 8-inch spring form pan.

2. For the filling, combine cashews, strawberries, coconut oil, agave, lemon juice, and vanilla extract in a food processor orhigh-speed blender until smooth and well combined. Pour the mixture on top of the crust and spread evenly.

3. To make the topping, add strawberries, agave, and orange juice to blender. Blend until smooth and pour on top of the ‘cheese’ layer. Freeze overnight.

4. Take the cake out to thaw for about 40-50 minutes before serving. You’ll want to cut it when it’s still semi-frozen.

If anyone has made this before or tries it out, let me know how good it is on a scale of 1 to 5 (5 being yummiest!) in the comments below!
