Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups sliced almonds pulsed in food processor until crumbed
  • 5 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar plus 1 tablespoon
  • 8 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 cup chocolate pudding plus extra for topping
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries halved

Instructions

  • To make crust: combine almond crumbs, butter, cacao powder and 1-tablespoon sugar in a medium bowl. Evenly pat into bottom of 8-inch round springform pan. Chill for at least 30 minutes to set. Or you can bake crust, see notes below.
  • To make filling: Beat cream cheese in a large bowl until creamy, about 2 minutes. Slowly beat in chocolate pudding and ¼ cup sugar until combined.
  • In a separate medium bowl, beat heavy whipping cream on high until thick peaks form, about 5 minutes. Fold into pudding mixture with a spatula. Pour into crust and evenly spread. 
  • Chill for 1 hour to thicken. 
  • Top with a thin layer of chocolate pudding and strawberries, then serven.

Notes

  • For added crunch, bake crust at 375º F. for 12 minutes, then cool to room temperature before filling
  • Can also use store-bought crust that's already pre-baked
  • If you don't have a cheesecake pan, serve in any dish or bowl
  • Chilling will cause cream cheese to thicken and cheesecake to firm. Or enjoy right after mixing together for a cheesecake flavored pudding.
