Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw cashews soaked and rinsed
  • 1 cup raw slivered almonds soaked and rinsed
  • 3/4 cups purified water add more water to reach desired consistency if needed
  • 2 cup strawberries sliced
  • juice from one lemon
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar use more or less to your taste
  • pinch of sea salt optional
  • 2 1/2 cups crushed cookie crumbs I used one sleeve of chocolate graham crackers
  • 1 quart strawberries diced

Instructions

  • Place cashews and almonds in two separate bowls, fill with enough filtered water to cover, allow to soak overnight or at least 2 or 3 hours.
  • Once the nuts have been soaked, rinse thoroughly and place in bowl of blender. Add the water, strawberries, lemon juice, agave and sea salt and blend until smooth. Transfer to a bowl, cover and set aside.
  • Place chocolate wafer cookies or chocolate graham crackers in a large zipper bag, using a rolling pin, crush the cookies until they are fine crumbs. Crush enough cookies until you have about 2 & 1/2 cups of crumbs. I used one sleeve of graham crackers. Place in a bowl, cover and set aside.
  • Dice 1 quart strawberries into a bowl.
  • Time to assemble, I used small juice glasses.
  • Spoon each glass with about 1/4 inch cookie crumbs, top with strawberry cream, diced strawberries. Repeat layers, finishing with a sprinkling of cookie crumbs.
