We bought a bunch of strawberries and thought what better way to make use of it than to make a healthy paleo strawberry cheesecake.
This Paleo recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free and even no-bake, so you do not even have to turn on the oven.
It is straightforward, and everything is made from start to finish using a food processor in under 30 minutes.
The cheesecake recipe also does not contain gelatin or eggs. Instead of using cream cheese as the filling and make it dairy-free, the recipe calls for cashew nuts, coconut oil, and almond milk. As a base, I used a variety of different nuts.
