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!!
