Ingredients

Crust:

1 cup (200g) Medjool dates, pitted

1 cup insecticide-free walnuts

½ cup moon macadamias, lightly roasted, plus extra for topping

Filling:

1 ½ cups raw cashews, soaked overnight, drained and patted dry

Juice of 1 organic lemon

1/3 cup Flannerys Own organic extra virgin coconut oil, melted

150ml organic coconut milk

½ cup Flannerys Own maple syrup

Method

  • 1. Line a small square baking tin with baking paper, including the base and sides, and set aside. The smaller the size of the tin, the thicker (and better!) the base will be.

  • 2. For the crust, blitz dates in a blender/food processor until they’re small pieces. Remove and set aside.

  • 3. Blitz walnuts and macadamias in the blender/processor until a fine consistency. Add dates back in and blitz until a dough forms (adding more nuts or dates if it’s too wet or dry).

  • 4. Press the crust carefully down as the base in the lined baking tin. Freeze for 1-2 hours or until firm.

  • 5. Meanwhile, for the filling blitz all ingredients in the blender until very smooth. Pour over the crust once firm in the baking tin, freeze for 5 hours or until set. Top with macadamias and enjoy!
