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!



You’re going to love this Cashew Cheese Cake because it is:

  • Healthy
  • Creamy
  • Luxurious
  • Delicious
  • Flavourful
  • Satisfying
  • Sexy
  • and FUN!

I have followed this recipe to make a cake. I didnt add any maple syrup as it was sweet enough just with the dates and i have made cherry layer and chocolate layer.
Not just me loved it , but my fiance also loved it although he doesnt mind if it has gluten, sugar and milk in it or not.

A big thank you for this lovely recipe!!!

You also have a chocolate one on insta
What did you change ? Do you 2times the chocolate layer with frozen banana’s and cocoa?


I am making this right now and its sooo easy and super tasty I can’t stop licking the spoon! My blender is lacking the power so my layers are a little chunky but still looks great.
Thanks Maria!
