30 min (excl. soaking and freezing)
For 3 months in the freezer
- Food processor (recommended) or blender
- Baking tin 20 cm (or smaller)
210 g (1/2 cup) almonds, raw
75 g (1/2 cup) soft (Medjoul) dates
1/2 tsp sea salt
40 ml water
225 g (1 1/2 cup) cashews, raw
Juice of 2 lemons
1 tsp vanilla powder, unsweetened
80 g (1/3 cup) coconut oil, extra vierge
80 ml (1/3 cup) maple syrup (recommended) or raw honey
100 g (1 cup) (frozen) raspberries
Extra: fresh berries for decoration
Soak the cashews overnight or for at least four hours in warm water.
Put the nuts, sea salt and dates in the food processor or blender until finely ground. Add the water and mix again. Press the mixture into the bottom of the tin until it is completely covered. Clean out the food processor or blender.
For the middle layer: Melt the coconut oil, add all the ingredients except for the raspberries to the food processor or blender until it is a creamy mixture. Pour 1/3 of the mixture onto the crust.
For the top layer: Add the raspberries to the other batch of filling and mix again until it becomes a creamy, thick pink mixture. Pour it all onto the middle layer. Place the cake in the freezer and leave it to set for about five or six hours. Remove it from the freezer and transfer it to the fridge for an hour. Then, slice the cake, serve and enjoy!
