  • 12 medjool dates, seeds removed
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Middle Layer
  • 1 + 1/2 cups raw macadamias (soaked for minimum 5 hours)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup organic maple syrup (rice malt syrup or honey would also work)
Mango Layer

Passionfruit Layer

Instructions

  1. To make the base; Place macadamias, medjool dates and sea salt in a high speed blender or food processor and blend until the nuts are crushed and the mixture holds together. Scoop out crust mixture and press firmly into a 20cm spring-form pan and smooth out with the back of a spoon. Rinse blender or food processor well.
  2. To make the middle layer; warm the coconut oil in a small pot on low heat until liquid, add the maple syrup and whisk to combine. In the blender or food processor place all ingredients and blend on high until very smooth. Pour about 2/3 of the mixture onto the crust and smooth with the back of a spoon or a spatula and place in the freezer to set for 30 minutes.
  3. To make the mango layer; add the mangoes to the remaining filling and blend on high until smooth. Pour onto the first layer of filling and place into the freezer for 30 minutes.
  4. To make the passionfruit layer; scoop out passionfruit pulp and layer over the top of the mango layer. Place in the freezer to set (minimum 2 hours). Use a warm knife to cut into slices
