A creamy and satisfying raw and frozen slice which has a very high healthy fat content and is flavoured with the amazing Acai Berry Powder which is an excellent source of anti-oxidants.
I have used a home made almond nut butter in this recipe but you could use one that has been commercially made. I like to activate my nuts to remove the anti-nutrients and by making the nut butter myself l can be assured of the ingredient content.
Making the Nut Butter:
You require 2 cups of raw nuts which have been soaked in filtered water and 1 tablespoon of sea salt for up to 24 hours for hard nuts such as almonds and around 6 hours for softer nuts such as cashews. They then need to be dehydrated as otherwise the nut butter will be too moist. Rinse well then add to the food processor with the chopping blade attachment and 1 cup of organic coconut oil, 2 pinches of pink Himalayan Rock Salt and 1 teaspoon of raw organic honey. Process until creamy. This can take up to ten minutes and it is a good idea to stop the food processor and wipe down the edges with a spatula so everything is evenly processed. You can keep this nut butter in the fridge for several days or use some of it as a spread and the rest in this lovely slice recipe.
Making the Slice:
1 1/2 cups of home made nut butter (I used almond)
1 1/2 cups raw activated cashews
3 level tablespoons raw organic honey
2 generous tablespoons Acai Berry Powder (This can be substituted for another Superfood powder or raw cacao).
Add the ingredients to the food processor using the chopping blade. Process until well combined. Place the ingredients in a dish generously lined with baking paper and smooth out with a spatula.
Place in the freezer to set for a couple of hours then slice into portions and return to the freezer.
As this slice has a high healthy fat content it does soften quite quickly when at room temperature and l prefer to eat it straight from the freezer.
