20 minute Valentine’s Cherry Cashew Cheese Cake

SBR

Do we really need an excuse to treat our other half (lets be real, I mean ourselves)? Ok, good, I am glad we all agree that Valentines Day is not the only day that we should be smothering our bests, family, and loved ones with kisses, hugs and plant based Cheese Cake!

Although I do not have a huge sweet tooth I am still so all over this amazingly simply Cherry Strawberry Cheese Cake! It is so simple to make, easy to follow and make without added sugars! Super healthy for you as is it filled with plant-based proteins, healthy fast and yummy naturally sweetened fruits!

This recipe involved next-to-no preparation.  All you need to do is make sure that your cashews have been soaking in water, in the fridge for at least 4 hours! Thats it!

The cashews are a super important component of this recipe so make sure you have enough and that they are indeed soaked to achieve that ultra rich and creamy texture!
