Ingredients

For the base

  • 1 cup medjool dates
  • 4 tbsp agave/maple syrup
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 190 g  pecans
  • 85 g buckwheat
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt

For the Cashew vanilla filling

  • 280 g cashews soaked in hot water for 30 mins
  • 115 ml agave/maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 115 ml full fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 lemon juice

For the Cherry filling

  • 280 g European Picota cherries halved and pitted
  • 3 tbsp agave/maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Line a loaf tin with parchment paper. Add all base ingredients to a food processor or high-speed blender and blend until it forms a dough. Press evenly into loaf tin and set aside to chill in the fridge.

  2. Blend all cashew filling ingredients together for at least 8 minutes, until super smooth and silky. Pour into a bowl and rinse out the blender.

  3. Add most of the cherries and agave to the blender and process until smooth.

  4. Spoon heaped tablespoons of cashew vanilla and cherry filling on to the base and swirl with a chopstick to combine.

  5. Top with remaining cherries and set aside to firm up in the freezer overnight. Let thaw for 20 mins before slicing and eating.
