Recipe: Sugar Free Nutty Strawberry Cheesecake

Going sugar free doesn’t have to mean going without sweet treats, so to prove my point here’s my recipe for a sugar free nutty strawberry cheesecake… the only difference is that it tastes even better than the traditional kind! 

For the crust:

  • 2 cups organic almond meal
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • 3 soft organic Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1-tablespoon maple syrup or coconut nectar

For the filling:

  • 1 1/2 cups cashew nuts, presoaked and strained (cover with water overnight then strain)
  • 7 tablespoons maple syrup (or date, coconut nectar etc.)
  • 5 tablespoons coconut oil, liquid
  • Juice from 3 fresh limes
  • Zest of 1 lime (for extra zing)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cups fresh strawberries

For the extra strawberry layer:

  • 1 ½ cup more fresh strawberries (keep ½ to decorate, slice them in half)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, liquid


  1. Place all crust ingredients into a food processor and process into a fine sticky crumble. Transfer the mixture into a lined springform pan (line the pan with greaseproof paper) and press down into a crust shape. Place in the fridge while working on the filling.
  2. Blend all filling ingredients into a smooth mixture (a power blender like a Vitamix works best). Transfer most of this mixture, leaving about 2 tablespoons in the blender, into the pan over the crust. Set aside.
  3. Add extra strawberry layer ingredients into the blender and blend into a smooth mixture. Carefully pour this over the filling in the pan. Use a skewer to swirl the top layer into the bottom layer a little. Top with the sliced strawberries to decorate.
  4. Cover the pan and place in the freezer for approximately 5-6 hours or preferably overnight for the cake to set.
  5. Remove the cake from the freezer and thaw out a little before serving (about 1.5 hour in the fridge or 30 minutes at room temp).
  6. Enjoy! (not sure you’ll have any leftovers but if you do, either refrigerate or freeze).
