Raw Strawberry Slice


With all the beautiful juicy strawberries in season at the moment, my boys and I made this sweet and delicious raw slice! It definitely hits that sweet tooth craving and is made with simple, raw ingredients. A summer fav and perfect for the freezer!

BASE 

  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1 cup raw cashew nuts
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla essence
  • 3 tbs coconut oil

Blend all ingredients in a high speed food processor until it resembles fine crumbs and sticks together. Spoon into a lined baking dish and press down with the back of a spoon. 

STRAWBERRY LAYER 

  • 2 - 3 cups fresh strawberries
  • 2/3 cup of raw cashews or macadamias
  • 4 tbs shredded coconut
  • 6 tbs pure maple syrup
  • 1 tbs coconut oil

Blend all ingredients in a food processor until combined and smooth. Pour over the base and spread evenly. Place in the freezer.

CHOCOLATE LAYER 

  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup pure maple

Mix all ingredients together until well combined. Taste and adjust if needed. Pour the chocolate on top of the strawberry layer and spread evenly. Place back in the freezer for another 3 hours or until set. Once frozen/set, remove from the freezer and allow the slice to defrost slightly (about 10 mins) before cutting into slices.

Note: Store in a container in either the fridge or freezer... we keep ours in the freezer!
