Sometimes I do weird things. For example, I look at the time and register mentally that I have a client session in 30 minutes and somehow decide that it’d be great idea (or challenge!) to whip up a raw dessert.

The point? That you can make up this baby – heavenly delight for your mouth – in under 30 minutes. In fact, it’s more like 15-20.

No more words needed other than THIS IS DELICIOUS.

You want the deets, right?

  • Sugar-free – YEP
  • Gluten-free – AHUH
  • Dairy-free- FO’ SHIZ
  • Vegan + raw – SURE IS!

Just a little note, please make sure you activate all your nuts properly before using in this recipe!

What you’ll need

For the crust

  • 1 cup of cashews (I usually prefer macadamias but I only had cashews)
  • 1 cup of coconut flakes
  • pinch of pink salt
  • 3tbls melted coconut oil
  • 2tbls brown rice malt syrup
  • 3-4 pitted dates (rehydrate by soaking in hot water for 5 minutes)
  • Squeeze of lemon juice

For the filling

  • 2 bananas
  • 2 cups of coconut flakes (or fresh coconut meat)
  • A dash of coconut water
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 heaped tsp of vanilla powder (or fresh from the bean)
  • 3/4 cup of melted coconut oil
  • pinch of pink salt

Directions

For the crust: Blend all ingredients up into a nice think consistency. Press into your lined tray or springform pan. Make sure it’s even and smooth. Place into the freezer to set.

For the filling: Blend all ingredients into a smooth creamy texture. I sometimes add avocado to this and a little cacao for a different flavour and creamier texture. Pour this mixture over the crust and smooth it out nice and evenly. Place back into the freezer if you want to eat it in a couple of hours or in the fridge over night.

p.s I love to serve this with Coconut Yoghurt or the thick cream top from a can of coconut (pop the can in the fridge to set it nice and firm).

Eat and enjoy! Saha to you.
