Ingredients | Makes two towers


  • 1/2 cup raw nuts or oats
  • 1/2 cup raisins or dates
  • 2 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 2-3 tablespoons cacao powder
  • Pinch of cinnamon and chili powder 


  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 3 tablespoon maple syrup or other liquid like water or vegan milk



To make the brownies

1. Pulse the walnuts, hemp seeds and cacao in your food processor until they become a rough flour, then add the raisins, cinnamon and chili and process until it sticks together in a rough dough.

2. Press into circles with a cookie cutter and put in the fridge or freezer until solid (about 30 minutes). 

To make the sorbet

1. Separately blend the banana, strawberries and blueberries until smooth like sorbet, adding 1 tablespoon of maple syrup to each, if you want to. This simply makes it creamier and sweeter. It doesn’t need the extra sweetness so you could add water or vegan milk instead.

2. Keep in the freezer until you are ready to make the towers. 

To assemble

1. Spread the different sorbets onto your base brownie as you like, then top each one off with another brownie. Sprinkle with berries, coconut, cacao nibs and whatever else you like. Eat right away or keep in the freezer. Enjoy
