Ingredients

Raspberry Swirl
  • 100g raspberries
  • 1 tbs maple syrup
  • 1 tbs water
Base
  • 150g shredded coconut
  • 150g almond meal (ground almonds)
  • 200g dates
  • 50mls warm water
  • pinch of salt
Filling
  • 300g raw cashews soaked – once soaked should equal about 350g
  • 100ml coconut milk – tinned (RFR tip - or make your own thick coconut milk by blending young Thai coconut meat with water in a high speed blender)
  • 250ml lemon juice
  • 150ml maple syrup
  • 70ml coconut oil – melted

Instructions

Raspberry Swirl
  1. Blend until smooth and set aside.
Base
  1. Blend all in the food processor until it forms a batter that sticks together.
  2. Then press into a brownie tray, lined with parchment paper.
Filling
  1. Blend it all in, leaving the coconut oil till last, in your high powered blender.
  2. Once smooth and creamy, pour into the brownie tray and spread evenly.
  3. Now with the raspberry swirl, get a spoon and spoon it out and randomly spread it around the lemon filling. It should be somewhat melted by now, so you may be able to pour it and then grab a toothpick, swirl it around in there to make hearts and other cool shapes.
  1. Other than that, pop it in the freezer to freeze, then remove 2 hours later and cut with a hot knife and eat it!

Life for me, is about good wholesome and nutritious food. Looking after yourself and being kind to others.

Food is nourishment, it needs to be living, and fresh. I see food and I think life and I also think YUM. Food is my favourite thing in the whole world and I love to make delicious treats. Where there is Passion, there is success and I believe my passion lies in my food.

I'm born and raised Australian, I moved to Canada when I was 19 and have always returned here no matter how far I have strayed. Now I call a little place called Powell River home. I own a Gluten Free, Dairy free, Refined Sugar free, Raw, Vegan treats and desserts business. This is my bliss and it truly makes me happy. If you try some of my recipes please show me I would love to see my work re-created.
