Raw cherry and coconut slice

A divine combination of sweet cherries, coconut and chocolate in this raw, dairy and gluten free slice. Mix it up and use a combination of cherries and raspberries for added colour and flavour.

This version has a mixture of frozen cherries and raspberries in it. Amazing colour. I also left the coconut off the top.

Pulse gently until roughly combined. A gorgeous colour.

Ready for the top layer.

Combine the base ingredients in a food processor and roughly process only as this is quite a chunky slice. Place in a small baking dish which is lined with baking paper and smooth with a spatula. Leave enough paper so it is hanging over the edges as this can be used to remove the slice when set.

The top layer: Combine in a saucepan 1 tablespoon raw cacao, 1/2 cup coconut oil and 2 tablespoons maple syrup. Heat gently and stir. Remove from heat when melted and combined.

Don’t over heat. Just a gentle softening of the ingredients is all that is required. In very hot weather the coconut oil may already be a liquid.

Pour the liquid mixture over the base and top with extra coconut flakes.

Place the slice into the freezer until set. Remove from the freezer and slice.

Frozen and ready to slice.

Tasting time.

This version has both cherries and raspberries. Lots of colour and a bit more of a zingy flavour.

This slice can be eaten straight away or stored in the freezer in an airtight container. Enjoy!
