This coconut-infused strawberry cheesecake recipe is perfect for vegans who are looking to enjoy the delicious indulgence of strawberry cheesecake without having to consume any dairy.

To craft this mouthwatering cheesecake, start by pulsing walnuts, salt and dates in a food processor -- this mixture will serve as the crust. Then add the crust to a spring pan, push it around evenly and place in a fridge to cool and harden.

For the filling, melt coconut oil and add maple syrup before adding to a food processor along with cashews and lemon juice. Once the mixture is creamy, scoop out two-thirds of it before adding to the crust in an even layer. Then mash in bananas and coconut milk into the remaining one-thirds of the mixture and add it to the crust pan as the third layer. Then add sliced strawberries and coconut flakes on top to finish.

There are few desserts as appetizing as a strawberry cheesecake, so it's only fitting that even vegans can enjoy this delicious treat without having to compromise on their dietary choices.
