Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • BASE:
  • 1 cup almond meal ( I used blanched but any almond meal will work)
  • ½ cup cacao powder
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • FILLING:
  • 1½ cups cashews ( soaked for 3-4 hours or overnight)
  • ½ can coconut cream
  • 2 TBSP cup maple syrup
  • 1 TBSP coconut oil
  • juice ½ lemon
  • 4 small plums (pitted)
  • drop vanilla extract
  • CHOCOLATE TOPPING:
  • 1 cup dark chocolate (I used 80% raw naturally sweetened chocolate)
  • ¼ cup almond milk or any plant milk
Method
  1. For the base: In a bowl mix together base ingredients with a fork until they become slightly wet and sticky. don't worry if the mixture is too dry, keep mixing and it will come together. Do not over mix as it can become too wet.
  2. Press down evenly into the base of a lined square baking dish and set aside.
  3. For the filling add all the filling ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.
  4. Pour over base and smooth out with spatula and place in the freezer to set (about 3 hours).
  5. Once the filling is hard, meltdown dark chocolate over low heat and mix with almond milk until smooth.
  6. Pour over plum filling and smooth out until evenly coated. Freeze again until chocolate is set. Cut into slices. Store in the fridge for the best texture.
