My strawberry cheesecake hummus is exactly what it says on the tin! The taste of strawberry cheesecake in a hummus, well a cashew raw strawberry cheesecake. The chickpeas make it into a velvety and creamy dip.
No plant milk is used in this hummus and instead, whole cashew nuts are blended to give sweet creaminess with chunky of yumminess. I don’t soak cashews as they’re the only nut this isn’t needed for.
If using a food processor you to make this hummus you will get chunky bits of cashew nuts remaining. If you like crunchy peanut butter this is great, if not you may want to blend the cashews first in a bullet or use cashew butter.
The strawberries can be replaced with any other berry like blueberry, raspberry, blackcurrants or blackberry. I just really love strawberry cheesecake and local British strawberries are in season and available to buy without plastic at the time of making.
A shot of beetroot juice helps to give a pinkey colour but is not essential. I just used some of the beetroot juice in precooked (without vinegar) vacuum packed.
I tried several variations of this cheesecake hummus recipe to decide if it needed the sesame seeds/tahini. It worked well with walnuts and pecans but in the end I decided to use sesame seeds as it’s a hummus recipe after all. I love this sweet hummus topped on my 3 ingredient cookies.
Sunflower seeds can be used instead of cashew nuts. They aren’t quite as yummy as they have a lower sugar content and don’t blend to be as creamy but it’s useful to make nut free and makes the dessert hummus recipe cheaper.
