We start grinding the prepared ingredients in a blender. First, twist the walnuts and peeled carrots (pre-cut it into pieces). Then add dates.

At the end of the dough, add spices, raisins and coconut oil.

Now let’s do the cream:

Cashew + lemon juice + coconut milk and butter + honey = all ingredients are carefully mashed and whipped in a blender.

If you do not have a powerful blender or a combine, then to get a really delicate cream in a regular kitchen blender, you should keep the cashew in water for at least 12 hours, ideally – 24 hours.

We make a cake

  1. Divide the dough and cream in half.
  2. We stamp one half of the dough with a round cake.
  3. Smear half the cream on the cake.
  4. Top puts the cake from the second half of the test.

  3. From the test mixture, we tamp the cake in a baking mold of medium size (up to 25 cm), we form small sides.
  4. We clean and grind bananas in a blender.
  5. Add coconut chips to bananas.
  6. Half of the resulting fruit and coconut mixture is distributed over the nut cake.
  7. We clean the kiwi and cut it into beautiful small triangles. Spread the pieces evenly over the banana-coconut mix.
  8. Spread over the pieces of kiwi the second half of the mixture. It turns out a thin filler layer, as if the pieces of kiwi were mixed in banana-coconut puree.

Decorate the cake on request. After completing the design, put the cake in the fridge – for 4 hours.

Remember that kiwi slices are very beautiful! We can play them with geometry. Especially, if you dilute the juicy green color with burgundy patches of currant berries.

(dried apricots + almonds) 200 grams of each component + zest of ½ lemon + lemon juice (1-2 tbsp)

The third layer of cake:
