Ingredients

For the base:
  • 1 serve (5g) Bulk Nutrients Matcha Fusion in Limited Edition Choc Mint flavour
  • 1 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 heaped tablespoons cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil - melted
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 8 medjool dates
  • Pinch of salt
 For the filling:
  • 1 1/2c raw cashews - soaked overnight and drained
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil - melted
  • 1 can coconut cream – thick component
  • 2 tablespoon coconut butter or extra coconut oil – melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup, honey or alternative sweetener
  • 1-2 teaspoon peppermint essence – to taste
 For the topping:
  • 200g dark chocolate
  • 2 teaspoon coconut oil - melted

Directions

  1. To make the base: Place dates and almond butter in a processor and blend until combined. Stir in all other base ingredients. If too wet add extra almond meal or if too dry add 1 tablespoon extra water.
  2. Press into a lined 8 x 8 inch baking tin.
  3. To make the filling: In a processor, blend cashews and coconut cream together. Blend until smooth and creamy. Add all other filling ingredients and process until combined. Add peppermint essence to taste.
  4. Pour over the base mix and place in the fridge overnight to set.
  5. To make the topping: Melt the chocolate and coconut oil together. Pour over the filling evenly. As the filling is already set and likely cold, the chocolate layer should not take long to set.
  6. Remove from tin and carefully slice using a warm knife. 
  7. Best stored in the fridge.
