Recipe Directions

  • 1. To make the crust, place coconut and cashews in food processor. Process until flour-like.
  • 2. Add the dates to the food processor mixture. Process again for 3 minutes. (It will seem like the mixture is too dry and you will want to add liquid. DON'T DO IT! Just keep processing. Eventually it will start to cling together and get oily-ish!). Stop processing once it will stick together when pinched.
  • 3. Press crust mixture firmly into tart pan(s). Set aside.
  • 4. Place all filling ingredients (except the cashews and the final 4 cups of strawberries) in a blender. Blend until smooth.
  • 5. Add cashews and blend again until smooth. Pour filling mixture into large bowl.
  • 6. Finely chop the remaining strawberries. Add to filling mixture and stir gently with a spoon.
  • 7. Spoon mixture into tarts and enjoy immediately.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

These strawberry shortcake treats are a perfect summer dessert! A food processor and a blender are required for this recipe.

To get these nice fluted crusts, I used this simple 4" Wilton tart pan, which has a removable bottom that makes it easy to remove. Make sure to press the crust down very firmly so that the crust stays together. (If it won't stick together, you haven't processed it long enough.)

If preparing in advance, store the pie crust and filling separately, then spoon filling into pie crusts just before eating.

To make a smaller batch, feel free to halve the recipe. It won't be enough to make an entire pie crust (using a standard 8" pie dish), but if you have mini pie pans that'll be fine.

Optionally, forego the crust and simply serve filling in custard cups for a quicker result!

I just made this filling and it is seriously good. Like I want to laugh and dance so good! I didn't have honey on hand so I subbed organic brown sugar. This is going in the favorites pile, thank you!

I didn't have cashews on hand so I used nuts and almonds and added some chía, too.
I made it for a friends birthday party. Everybody loved it.
