Raw Strawberry Shortcake

Since berry season is in full swing and strawberries are on sale everywhere you turn, Jesse and I stocked up on strawberries this weekend and made an old favorite: strawberry shortcake! We made a yum raw vegan version that definitely rivals the original!

Raw Strawberry Shortcake


2 lbs fresh strawberries
6 or 7 pitted dates
1/2 cup cashews
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts
2 tablespoons honey, divided
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt

first, we took the nuts and processed them with 1 tablespoon sea salt.

we added the "cashew cream" that we used for the raw key lime pie .

then, we processed dates and added them to the nut mixture...

next, we added about 6 chopped strawberries to the "shortcake" mix and 1 tablespoon honey

then, we started on the sauce by blending about 10 strawberries by themselves and setting aside

then, we processed about 15 to 20 strawberries with 2 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon honey and a pinch of sea salt.

we added the processed strawberries that we set aside earlier to the sauce and mixed them in

finally, we built our dessert starting with the shortcake, forming into patties and placing first in the bowl

then we layered on chopped strawberries and strawberry sauce, then repeated the process, making 2 layers

and here's the final yumminess!!
