Servings: 12
Preparation Time: 3 hours


  • 2 cups strawberries, quartered
  • 2 cups nuts, such as walnuts or almonds
  • 1 cup dates, pitted
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt



Preheat oven to 375 °F.

Place strawberry pieces on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and puree until smooth.

Meanwhile, in a food processor or blender, combine nuts, dates, coconut oil and salt for crust. Pulse until smooth. Spread into bottom of a 9″ spring form pan (or pie pan) and press flat.


In a blender, combine soaked cashews, sour cream, maple syrup, coconut cream concentrate, and vanilla. Blend on high speed for at least 2 minutes or until completely smooth. Pour mixture into prepared crust.

Place dollops of strawberry puree on top of filling. Using a spoon or knife, carefully swirl the berry mix into the filling.

Place pan in refrigerator to chill for at least 2 hours or until ready to serve. Drizzle with a little melted chocolate if desired. Store in refrigerator.
