Ingredients

For the Crust

1 C raw cashews
1/2 C unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 C pitted dates
1 T melted coconut oil
Pinch of salt

Filling

2 C raw cashews, soaked in cold water overnight, or at least 4 hours
3/4 C coconut milk
juice of one lemon
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise, seeds scraped
1/3 C maple syrup
2 T coconut oil, melted
1/2 C frozen Oregon raspberries
1/2 C frozen Oregon Marion blackberries

Preparation

Step 1
Add all of the crust ingredients to a food processor and pulse until coarse crumbs form. You want
to texture to resemble wet sand. Press the crust into the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan and place in
the freezer for 30 minutes.

Step 2

Prepare the filling by draining the cashews and placing them in a high powered blender. Add
coconut milk, lemon juice, maple syrup, vanilla seeds and coconut oil. Blend until smooth. Pour half of
the filling on top of the frozen crust (reserve the remaining filling in the blender) and place in the freezer
to set (about 1-2 hours)

Step 3

Add the frozen berries to the remaining filling and blend until smooth. Place in the fridge until
the first layer sets. Once the first layer is frozen, add the berry layer and freeze again, preferably
overnight, or for at least 4 hours.

Step 4
Top with more frozen Oregon berries and enjoy!
