Ingredients
Base

  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp Lakanto Baking Blend
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • Pinch good-quality salt
  • 6+ Soft Medjool dates, pitted

Filling

  • 3 cups (375g) frozen or fresh raspberries
  • 3 cups (240g) desiccated coconut
  • 1/3 cup (135mL) Lakanto Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 cup (120mL) canned coconut cream, solid part only
  • 1/2 cup (120g) coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tablespoon beetroot powder, optional for colour
  • Vanilla

Chocolate topping

Top with satsuma slices

Method

  1. Base: Add everything except the dates to a food processor. Pulse until very small crumbs have formed then add dates and pulse until the mix starts to clump together (if this doesn’t happen, add more dates). Press base into the base of the tin, not pressing down too hard (as this compacts the filling, and alters the texture of the base).
  2. Filling: Add the raspberries to a small saucepan over medium heat. Simmer for 5-10 minutes or until the mixture has intensified and formed a jammy mixture.
  3. Add the raspberries and rest of the filling ingredients to a large mixing bowl. Mix until well combined. Firmly press the mixture into the baking tin on top of the chocolate crust.
  4. Topping: Melt coconut oil, then add remaining ingredients and whisk together until smooth. Pour final later onto slice, and reset in freezer.
  5. To serve, you need to defrost the slice for 30m-1 hour on the bench before cutting into servings.
