strawberry cheesecake slice with a shortbread crust

healthy no bake coconut strawberry cheesecake slice with a shortbread crust and dark chocolate drizzle

This strawberry cheesecake slice brings together two of our previous slice recipes, one borrowed and one of our own. The shortbread crust is the same used in our Thermomix conversion for the Fit Mitten Kitchen Caramel Slice. The strawberry coconut filling is the one used in our Coconut Strawberry Cheesecake. To finish the slice we add a drizzle of dark chocolate because, well… it’s chocolate!

The slice is gluten, dairy and refined sugar free and there is room to experiment here as well with changing up the fruit in the filling. Be sure to begin soaking the cashews in hot water two hours before making. Best stored in the fridge.

If you don’t own a Thermomix then a good food processor will get the job done.
