Strain 1 cup unsweetened coconut yoghurt overnight in a cheesecloth-lined strainer.
Simmer one cup fresh or frozen strawberries in 1/4 cup maple syrup for 20 minutes.  Push the strawberries through a sieve to create a purée. Finally, fold the purée, leaving a little for drizzling on top with the cashew cream.  Then gently fold that mixture into the strained yoghurt. Set aside.
