1/2 cup macadamia nuts soaked in water for 30 minutes
1/2 cup dates soaked in water for 30 minutes
1 cup coconut
1 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup macadamia nuts soaked in water for 30 minutes
1 cup desiccated coconut
¼ cup coconut oil
¼ cup rice syrup
1 ½ cups strawberries fresh (or frozen if fresh unavailable)
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
150g raw Chocolate
Rinse and drain water from nuts and dates. Process with remaining ingredients until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Press into a tin lined with baking paper. Place in the freezer to help harden until you have finished making the filling.
To make the strawberry layer, add all ingredients to a high speed blender and process until smooth. If you are using frozen strawberries it will be easier to defrost them first. Spoon on top of chilled base, smooth over and freeze until set.
Melt the raw chocolate and drizzle over the strawberry layer and chill in the fridge for around an hour.
When set, remove from the slice tin, slice straight away with a hot knife to stop the chocolate cracking. Store in an airtight container in the fridge, or alternatively between layers of baking paper in the freezer for up to 4 months.
