Strawberry No Bake Cheesecake Bars (Paleo, Vegan)

Hello to strawberry season! I love it. Berries are my favorite, and I love to use them in desserts. I find that berry treats are usually low in sugar and so refreshing and delicious, and the same applies to these paleo and vegan Strawberry No Bake Cheesecake Bars.

Strawberry No Bake Cheesecake Bars Recipe

These bars are perfect for the summer because you don’t have to turn on the oven and everything is “made” in the freezer. All you really need is a high powered blender to make the different components of the cheesecake, and the result is a yummy frozen treat that’s creamy and decadent. It honestly tastes like ice cream cake to me!

Made without even a hint of gluten or dairy, the sturdy and crumbly crust is made with a mixture of pecans and dates, and the cheesecake filling is made with a combination of soaked cashews, strawberries, coconut milk, and maple syrup. So yummy!
