Strawberry and Blueberry “Cheese-like” Cake

So luscious and creamy and yet this Strawberry and Blueberry “Cheese-like” Cake is totally gluten and dairy free! This happens to be my birthday week, so it’s gonna be one filled with cakes and cookies – hope that’s okay with y’all  😆 

A Dairy-Free Strawberry Blueberry Icebox Cashew Cake

When my daughter was a toddler, her favorite nut (other than myself) was the mild cashew nut.
If I gave her a bowl of cashews and berries, she was one happy camper! Back then, I had no clue that cashews came from cashew apples! Actually, I don’t recall even knowing what a cashew apple was, when I found out where cashews came from! I thought they might have something in common with Wood apples, which were plentiful in Sri Lanka; but, good ol’ Google told me I was wrong. I’ve looked for cashew apples in grocery stores I frequent, but, just like wood apples, they seem ever elusive.

Strawberry and Blueberry "Cheese-like" Cake

Over the years, I have fueled my daughter’s love of cashews by making trail mixes, stir fries, and curries, for her.
But, a couple of years ago, I stumbled on cashew cream. Cashew cream is made in many different ways, but, the way I make it is to blend soaked cashews with some almond or cashew milk and voila – a delicious and versatile dairy free “cream”. I’ve experimented with cashew cream and made curries with it as well as chocolate pudding.

And today, I used cashew cream as the beginning foundation of this dairy free, gluten free, ice box, Strawberry and Blueberry “Cheese-like” Cake! This is the perfect dessert for any picnics or get togethers during these last few weeks of summer. This luscious, yet healthy cake, is jam packed with strawberries and blueberries, in addition to cashews. Coconut oil, sugar and vanilla are the only other add-ins. This dairy free, gluten free cake stores well in a freezer or a cooler, till it’s time to eat up!

When I first made it, I froze it and took these pictures after about 30-40 minutes of thawing. I refroze a few slices and they thawed out wonderfully too.

Easy Mango Custard (a vegan recipe) - Savory Spin

Monday 29th of June 2020

[…] I used coconut condensed milk as lactose is not my friend and I didn’t have any Lactaid pills on hand. If lactose is your friend, please feel free to use regular condensed milk.The coconut flour acted like cornstarch in thickening up this mango custard. And, the quantity of coconut oil further helped combine the ingredients and give them a more custard like texture. Be cautious when using coconut oil as you want these to be more custard like and less like this strawberry blueberry cheesecake-like cake. […]
