Servings: 12 slices

Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups nuts walnuts & almonds
  • 2 Tbs coconut oil
  • Pinch of pink salt

Filling

  • 2 1/4 cups raw cashews soaked
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk (I used canned coconut milk)
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil melted
  • heaping 1/8 tsp pure stevia powder (or 1/2 cup maple syrup instead of milk & stevia)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Dash of pink salt

Additional Ingredients for Lime Layer

  • 1 handful spinach
  • 2 Tbs lime zest

Additional Ingredients for Strawberry Layer

  • 5 Tbs freeze dried strawberry powder

Instructions

To make the crust:

  • Pulse together all ingredients in a food processor.
  • Press into a small (7") springform pan lined with parchment.

To make the filling:

  • (Use cashews that have been soaked overnight in a bowl of water, or boil a pot of water and pour over and soak 2 hours) Drain, rinse and shake dry. Put cashews in food processor.
  • Peel and shred zucchini. Place shreds in a clean towel and squeeze out all the excess moisture. Blend cashews & zucchini until smooth.
  • Add remaining ingredients, streaming in the oil last. Taste and adjust for sweetness.

To make the lime layer:

  • Remove half of the filling (about 1 1/3 cups) and set aside. Add zest and spinach to the filling and blend smooth.
  • Pour lime layer over crust and smooth with a spatula. Cover with foil and freeze for 1-2 hours until firm.

To make the strawberry layer:

  • Blend freeze dried strawberries into a powder using a small blender. Add powder to the leftover filling and blend again.
  • Spread strawberry layer on top of lime layer. Cover with foil and freeze again to set.
  • When cake is set, remove from springform, decorate with strawberries & more zest and refrigerate until ready to eat. ENJOY!
