About the Recipe

I've been personally following this recipe since 2015 and it never disappoints! The textures and flavors are incredible! You've got to try this one.



  • 1/2 cup raw almonds (pecan or walnuts will also work)

  • 1/2 cup soft Medjool dates

  • ¼ tsp. sea salt


  • 1 ½ cups raw cashews, soaked for at least 5 hours, overnight is best juice of 2 lemons

  • The seeds of 1 whole vanilla bean (or 1 tsp. alcohol-free vanilla extract)

  • 1/3 cup raw coconut oil, melted

  • 1/3 cup raw honey (solid or liquid.)(Vegans use agave nectar.)

  • 1 cup raspberries (thaw completely if using frozen)


Step 1

Place nuts and dates in a food processor with sea salt and pulse to chop until they are to your desired fineness (process a finer crust longer than a chunky one). Test the crust by spooning out a small amount of mixture and rolling it in your hands. If the ingredients hold together, your crust is perfect. Scoop out crust mixture in a 7” spring-form pan (if you don’t have a spring-form pan, use a pie plate lined with saran wrap), and press firmly, making sure that the edges are well packed and that the base is relatively even throughout. Rinse food processor well.

Step 2

Warm coconut oil and honey in a small saucepan on low heat until liquid. Whisk to combine.

Step 3

In the most powerful food processor / blender you own (you decide which one has the most torque) place all filling ingredients (except raspberries) and blend on high until very smooth (this make take a couple minutes so be patient). If you have a Vita-Mix, absolutely use it.

Step 4

Pour about 2/3 (just eyeball it, you can’t make a mistake!) of the mixture out onto the crust and smooth with a spatula. Add the raspberries to the remaining filling and blend on high until smooth. Pour onto the first layer of filling. Place in freezer until solid.

Step 5

To serve, remove from freezer 30 minutes prior to eating. Run a smooth, sharp knife under hot water and cut into slices. Serve on its own, or with fresh fruit. Store leftovers in the freezer (what leftovers?).
