Recipe Directions

GRAHAM CRACKER CRUST

1. Process the dates in a food processor until they form one ball.

2. In a large bowl, add the almond meal and dates and blend using your hands. Add the agave, water and salt and continue blending.

3. Press to the bottom of an 8″ inch springform pan, being sure to create a hill at the edges as show in the pictures above.

LEMON CREAM CHEESE FILLING

4. Add all the ingredients in a blender and blend until completely smooth.

5. Pour the filling over the graham cracker crust and smooth over the top to create an even surface.

STRAWBERRY TOPPING

6. Blend the strawberries and agave in a Magic Bullet or blender very briefly. You want to have a chunky consistency with small pieces of strawberries.

7. Using a large spoon, spoon the strawberry topping over the top of the lemon cream cheese filling and smooth over the top.

8. Let set in the freezer for 2 hours or in the fridge overnight.

9. To serve, remove the springform sides and garnish with lemon zest and a small strawberry on each slice.

This was absolutely delish!!!! I think I may have used the wrong size of springform pan but I recommend you double the filling and topping recipe. I substituted blueberries in addition to strawberries for the top and it was amazing. Thanks for the great recipe!

This was great! I think the lemon was perhaps a bit too much. Will make it 3/4 cup next time. Also, substituted honey or dates for the agave. Thanks!!!

This is a recipe I can see myself making over and over again! It is so quick and easy, and the flavor totally blew my mind! If you didn't know better, you would really think you were eating cheesecake!

I also substituted vanilla extract for the vanilla bean/powder.
