White Chocolate-Strawberry Cheesecake

Another one of Vanessa's mouth-watering creations...

White Chocolate-Strawberry Cheesecake
Posted by Vanessa Sherwood on GLiving Community Forum

Filling:
2 cups fresh chopped strawberries
1 cup cashews (they do not have to be soaked)
3 oz (6 tbsp) melted coconut butter
1 oz (2 tbsp) melted cacao butter
1/4 cup light floral honey or agave
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt

Blend all of the ingredients in a vita mix or high speed blender until completely smooth.


Crust:
1/2 cup brazil nuts
1/2 cup shredded coconut
Pinch of salt
1 heaping tablespoon cocoa powder
1-2 tablespoons agave
1-2 tablespoons cacao nibs
Seeds from 1/4 vanilla bean

Process the brazil nuts, shredded coconut, salt, cocoa powder and vanilla bean seeds in a food processor until fine crumbs. Add the agave and cacao nibs until the mixture just starts to stick together. Press into the bottom of a springform pan. If you are making a large cheesecake, feel free to double or even triple the recipe (crust and filling).

Pour the filling over the crust and chill or freeze until ready to serve. This recipe made two 4 1/2 inch by 1 1/2 inch cheesecakes.


Strawberry sauce:
1 cup strawberries
Agave nectar to taste

Blend or mash the strawberries and agave together. Pour over slices of strawberry cheesecake.

I've managed, at last, to get my hands on some cacao butter! Woo-Hoo!

Will be making this tonite! I cannot wait to taste it... It's supposed to be divine!

Be back with my report!

OMG is right!

Just finished licking the Vitamix clean after making the filling. Wowsers!!!

I put the cheesecakes (used 2 small plastic containers, lined with saran wrap) in the freezer to set. Man, I think it's gonna be some serious ecstatic taste bud experience! lol

Carmella double the cherries amount for the filling; as the single recipe only gives you one (if your lucky 2) cherries per slice. Joz
