One cup of almonds or hazelnuts, but you can take pecans, walnuts or Brazil nuts
One cup of dates, raisins, dried apricots, prunes
Coconut oil – 2-3 tbsp. better melted
1 cup cashew, if you want to get a layer like in the picture or 2 cups, if you want to make a cream layer higher. Nuts pre-soak overnight
Sweetener to taste. I have 1 tablespoon of agave syrup
2-4 tbsp. of water
Coconut oil – 3-5 tbsp, better melted. The more coconut oil, the firmer and stronger the cream will be.
Option 1. Lime + pistachios
Option 2. Sweet cherry and chocolate sauce
Prepare the base by mixing nuts and dried fruits, as well as melted coconut oil. Distribute the first layer evenly in shape and send it to freeze.
Before serving, get the cake for half an hour, cut into portions and decorate to your liking. For example, we make a part with a slice of lime and pistachios broken in a mortar, and we decorate a part with half of a sweet cherry and a pour of chocolate sauce. You can make your own version with berries, fruits, chocolate and mint.
For the base the following combinations are good: walnut and prunes, almonds and dried apricots, raisins can be added to any nut. Personally, I like the combination of dates and raisins.
