To begin preparation of the cake base, soak 150 grams (5.3 ounces) of almonds and 170 grams (6 ounces) of pitted dates overnight. Add these to your blender and process until a nice chunky mixture has formed. Using a 16 cm (6.3 in) cake pan, add the mixture to the bottom and put the pan into your freezer while you make the next layer.
Next you will make the vanilla cream. You will first need 125 grams (4.4 ounces) of raw cashews that have soaked overnight, 25 ml (.85 ounces) of lemon juice, 3 tablespoons of extra virgin coconut oil, 2 tablespoons of raw honey (or sweeten to your taste) and the seeds from ½ of a vanilla pod. Have a small amount of water ready if needed. Add all the ingredients to your blender and process until smooth. Take the cake pan out of the freezer and add this second layer. When finished, place the cake pan back into the freezer. Remove the cake from the freezer in order to add a layer of many strawberries that you have cut in half. Once again return the cake to the freezer.
For the final layer you will be making a delicious strawberry cream. You will need 125 grams (4.4 ounces) or raw cashews that have been soaked overnight, 25 ml (.85 ounces) of lemon juice, 3 tablespoons of raw honey (or to your desired sweetness) and 300 grams (10.6 ounces) of fresh or frozen strawberries. Starting with the strawberries, you can begin blending the ingredients. Add the cashews next and continue adding the rest of the ingredients. Add this mixture to the cake pan and place in the freezer to harden. Remove the pan and take some whole strawberries and push them slightly into the cream so they remain upright and back into the freezer or fridge overnight.
When you are ready to enjoy, take the cake out of the pan and sprinkle coconut flakes overtop before serving.
