Time: 20 minutes

Complexity: Easy!

Base:

  • 1 cup plain buckinis (I used Loving Earth)
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 and a 1/4 cups dates, chopped roughly

Filling:

  • 2 cups cashews (soaked for at least 4 hours prior)
  • ¼ cup coconut nectar or an alternative sweetener (i.e. coconut sugar)
  • 1 cup mixed fresh or frozen berries (I used a combo of frozen blueberries and raspberries).
  • 2 tablespoons Acai Powder (optional) – I used Bioglan
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or coconut paste
  • Pinch of Himalayan rock salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Method:

  1. To make the base, combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until well combined. If the mixture doesn’t stick together when pressed together with your fingers add more dates until it does.
  2. Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of a springform round cake tin and refrigerate while you make the filling.
  3. To make the filling, combine all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.
  4. Pour the mixture over the base and smooth out until nicely even.
  5. Freeze for at least 2 hours then store in the fridge until ready to serve.
  6. Serve with fresh berries.
  7. Enjoy x
