Raw Chocolate Strawberry Cheezecake

 Crust
1 cup walnuts
½ cup brazil nuts
½ cup almonds
½ cup chopped dates
1 tbsp raw agave
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of sea salt
To Prepare:
Chop the nuts in a food processor then add the dates, agave, cinnamon and salt and process until this dough forms a ball. Remove from processor and press the dough into a pie pan or spring form pan. Make sure to get the sides and to press it so it has even thickness.

Cheeze Filling
½ cup cacao
1/3 cup raw agave
1/3 to ½ cup water
Seeds from vanilla bean or use a splash of vanilla extract
2 cups cashews (pre-soaked in water for 2 hours then rinsed and drained)
To prepare:
Put agave, water, vanilla in a blender and blend. Slowly add the cashews and continue to blend until smooth.

Strawberry filling
1 pint strawberries or other berry (about 2 cups)
½ cup raw agave
1 tsp Lemon juice
pinch of sea salt
To prepare:
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Topping
Get creative! Sprinkle on more raw cacao, some coconut, a cup of raw berries, fruit, nuts, etc.

To put the cake together...

Layer 1/3 of the cashew cheeze mixture over the crust, spreading it evenly. Next layer about ¼ of the strawberry sauce mixture over that. Add a sprinkle of raw cacao powder here if you wish. Repeat, making a second layering. Add some chopped fruit/berries here if you wish. Repeat the layering until you run out of stuff, ending with a layer of cashew cheeze then strawberry sauce. Top with your desired toppings. Place in the freezer to chill and solidify then serve.
