Next up in the Kickstart to Raw series is a brand spanking recipe that is off the charts in terms of deliciousness! I love chocolate. I love coconut. I love mint. What’s not to love about Raw Peppermint Coconut Slice?!
Raw Peppermint Coconut Slice
- 2 cups pecans
- 1/3 cup desiccated coconut
- Pinch salt
- 4 tbl coconut oil
Place the nuts, salt and coconut in the food processor and whizz to a flour consistency. Add the coconut oil and mix to combine. Turn out the mixture into a cake tin lined with cling film or plastic wrap so removal is easy. Place in the fridge to set.
- 1 cup dates
- 1/4 cup water
Combine the dates and water in the food processor until a paste forms.
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
- 1/4 tsp vanilla powder
- 1 tsp spirulina, chlorella or green powder
Add the coconut milk, peppermint extract and vanilla. I used a teaspoon of spirulina to colour it as I wanted a green cake! Any green powder can be used and the amount up to you but beware that some powders taste stronger than others. Pour the filling onto the base ensuring an even finish and place back in the fridge for 3-6hours.
Place all ingredients in a mini-blender and combine. Once the filling is set (2-3hours), using a jug, pour the chocolate over the filling in whatever design you like and sprinkle with coconut/cacao nibs/goji berries – your choice!
