Strawberry 'Cheese' Cake

The classic raw cashew 'cheese' cake with strawberries.. a simple dessert that you can enjoy on Valentine's day or any other day :). I added cacao and coconut to the usual nutty crust since both of them goes well with the strawberry flavor. 
Add the red raspberry sauce and you have a perfect dessert for your valentine :)
