  • 5 tbsp coconut oil, liquefied
  • 5 tbsp cacao powder


  • 4 cups raw cashews, pre-soaked for 5-6hrs & strained
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 8 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, liquefied
  • 250g raspberries

  1. Process all crust ingredients in a food processor. Transfer into a 21cm springform pan and press down into an even flat crust. Freeze while working on next step.
  2. Make sure all ingredients are at room temp. Blend everything together in a power blender into a smooth creamy consistency. Adjust the pink hue to your liking (by adding a hint more or less beetroot powder). Transfer this mixture into the springform pan over the crust. Decorate with any desired toppings.
  3. Freeze for 5-6 hours or overnight. Keep frozen until serving time. Keep any leftovers frozen.
