Every epic raw dessert has a star ingredient, and in this recipe it is the cacao butter; it creates a rich, white chocolate flavor that will melt in your mouth. A classy drizzle of defrosted raspberries add a touch of tartness and pop of color. Feel free to add any other toppings you desire like cacao nibs, shredded coconut, lemon zest, etc. However, the cake might be devoured before you have a chance to get any toppings on!

Yield: 1, 4″ cake


  • 1 Tbsp. cashews
  • 1 Tbsp. macadamia nuts
  • 2 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 vanilla bean, beans scraped out
  • Dash of salt
  • ⅓ cup raw cashews, soaked 8 hours or overnight, drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup coconut meat
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 3 Tbsp. cacao butter, melted
  • 3 Tbsp. coconut cream, canned and unsweetened (see NOTE)
  • ½ tsp. lucuma powder
  • ¼ tsp. mesquite powder
  • 1 vanilla bean, beans scraped out
  • Dash of salt
  • Topping: ¼ cup frozen raspberries, defrosted


  1. In your food processor, mix all crust ingredients together until sticky and dough-like.
