Light and healthy. A great alternative for a sweet treat.

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • BASE
  • 1 cup fresh pitted dates
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, Chopped very fine
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cups raw cashews , soaked in cold water for a few hours
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 lemon or lime , juiced
  • raspberries to decorate


  1. Blend dates, walnuts,rosemary and salt together until finely chopped.
  2. Divide mixture evenly between 6 x 1/4 cup glasses. Chill
  3. To make filling ... drain cashews and blend with all ingredients ( except berries) Until smooth and creamy
  4. Pour mixture ,divided evenly over bases. Chill
  5. Decorate with raspberries ( slightly crushed ) and sprigs of rosemary

Notes... Although you have to think ahead to soak the cashews this is a quick and easy dessert for the health conscious out there. It can be decorated with any fruit. The rosemary is a strange but delightful addition!
