  1. Wipe clean the food processor. Add freeze dried strawberries to the food processor and blend into a fine powder. 
  2. Add the coconut butter, banana, maple syrup,  vanilla and sea salt to the processor and blend until smooth. It'll be a bit sticky. 
  3. Now add the coconut milk and blend until smooth. 
  4. Using a rubber spatula, spread the cheesecake filling evenly on the crust. Refrigerate for at least an hour until firm enough to slice. 
  5. You can eat directly out of the fridge or leave out for 5 minutes to soften! Enjoy!
