Recipe Directions

STRAWBERRY TOPPING: First: before making pie add all topping ingredients in a bowl and mash. Set aside so that all the juices start to flow and let it marinate.

CRUST: Butter your pie pan with coconut oil. Grind nuts in coffee grinder (that’s how I do it). Pour nuts, agave, sea salt, and cinnamon into food prcessor and process until mixture starts to come together but is still crumbly. Form crust in your dish and set in the fridge while you make the filling.

FILLING: Pour all filling ingredients into food processor and blend until creamy and smooth. Make sure to taste to see if you need to add anything.

Pour half filling into pie crust, then add about 1/4 of the strawberry topping mixture in the middle of the pie. Pour the rest of the filling on top. Lastly I take some of the strawberry juice and swirl it on top gently. Chill for at least 2 hours prior to serving.

NOTE: I have soaked the pine nuts for 1-4 hours but you do not have to. My mother in law made it without soaking them at all and the cake was still fabulous! I have also made cheesecake with half cashews (soaked for 4 hours) and half pine nuts and the texture was very nice also. I FEEL BAD FOR NOT MENTIONING THIS: I BROUGHT THE COCONUT OIL TO A LIQUID BY LETTING IT SET IN WARM WATER BEFORE ADDING IT TO THE FP.I DO NOT KNOW IF IT IS JUST AS GOOD BOTH WAYS) My thinking was that once it solidified again in the fridge it would make it nice and firm.

Enjoy! :) ~

ChocolatestRAWberry's Thoughts

Cheesecake with a special main ingredient. My mother in law accidentally came up with the cheesecake and my husband and I loved it! I added vanilla and strawberry filling swirled in and as a topping. This cheesecake is really to die for!

Do you think if I only use macadamia nuts instead of pine nuts it would turn out good? I mean the consistence because I'm pretty sure it will taste yummy!!

This was my fist ever experiment with raw foods, I made it for my mum's birthday. I was super worried that people wouldn't like it, but my little brother (who's six) took a bite and announced that he loved it! It was a bit filling but very good, it instantly made it in to our box of favorite recipes!

Hi Xpress411, can you taste the pinenuts? Just wondering. I like pine nuts but haven't tried them in a raw cheesecake yet. Normally I use cashews

Succulent Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake
5
5 out of 5

Out of All the Cheesecakes I've had, real and raw, this makes my top Three. So good! My vegan friend still mentions it every time I see him.

Wow this rawked my world. I'm a newbie and have been having trouble finding recipes I like. This one was awesome!! My non raw husband and children loved it too. Raw desserts works great for our family as I have two sons with gluten intolerance.

Also, I have leftover filling and strawberry and I put it in the freezer for Cheesecake Swirl Ice Cream--Yum, Yum!!!

This totally tastes like cheesecake... actually it tastes better. I used half cashews and half macadamia nuts for the filling because pine nuts here are super pricey. It came out great. I will be making this again for sure.

Oh my! This looks gorgeous. I'm going to try this tonight. Not with coconut oil though. I'll use cacao butter. Mmmmmm. I wonder how this will go with brazil nuts. Anyone tried that before?

Hi Gojigirl! I have a lot of ideas in my head for this cheesecake. I might put them all on here as I make them and as the fruits come into season. I should have stated that this pie is good by itself and that you can freeze it (if you believe in that).

If you are making it ahead of time, I definately would make it without the filling and make the topping on the day you are going to serve it and then just drizzle the topping on each person's slice on their plate or make several toppings and let them choose!

Have you ever made the pie without the strawberry topping being added until needed? I'm trying to think of how much in advance I could make this without becoming soggy from the berries. This sounds SO YUMMY--can't wait to try it! Also, have you tried any other toppings besides strawberries?

I like cashews. Okay I will. The whole recipe is just superb. One of the best raw desserts I've had by far. Everything works really well together. The 1 cup of coconut oil makes the cake.

I've made something very similar with cashews and yes it's really 1 cup of coconut oil and it works very well. I've found if you cut the level of coconut oil the cake doesn't hold as well. That's just my experience. justbeautiful... this thing works great with cashews too.

Okay, It's firming up in the fridge right this moment. I added some cinnamon by mistake to the filling and it added taste reminiscent of graham cracker crust. The batter tasted so good I can't wait for it to firm up. YUM!
