Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Egg-free, Vegan

Chocolate Crust Recipe

  • 12 dried pitted dates
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 3 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder
  • Pinch of unrefined salt
  • 1 tbsp virgin coconut oil

Cashew Cream Recipe

  • 3/4 cup raw cashews, soaked in warm water for 3 – 6 hours
  • 1 1/2 tbsp raw honey (vegan use coconut nectar)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Pinch of unrefined salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp virgin coconut oil
  • 1-2 tbsp water
  • Blueberries (about 2 cups) for the top

 

How to make our Raw Vegan Dessert Recipe

1. Lightly grease a 23cm loose-bottomed tart tin with coconut oil.

2. If the dates are tough place in a small jug and cover with hot water for 10 minutes to soften. Drain well.

3. Make the base. In a food processor, blend the almond meal, coconut and cacao until the coconut is finely ground. Add the drained dates along with the remaining base ingredients and blend for one minute until the mixture begins to clump together. Tip into the tart tin and press to evenly cover the base and sides. Chill in the freezer.

4. To make the cashew cream, drain and rinse the cashews and place in a food processor or blender along with the remaining ingredients. Blend for 2 – 3 minutes until smooth, stop and scrape down the sides as needed. Add a little more water if needed to loosen. The cream should be the consistency of thick yoghurt.

5. To assemble, remove the base from the freezer and spoon in the cashew cream. Use the back of a spoon to spread it evenly over the base. Top with an even layer of blueberries. Chill until ready to serve and consume within one day of assembling.

 

Smart Tip + The raw cashew cream used in this dessert is a great alternative to the dairy option. Just make sure you soak the cashews well and use a high -speed processor to get a smooth, creamy, consistency.
