A Raspberry Dream
Raw cakes became one of my specialties. They are so super easy to make. You would not believe HOW easy you can make a raw cake once you get the hang of it. No worries, I will definitely show you how. This time I made one with a super creamy berry layer and a coconut crust. The cream is naturally colored with fruit powder. If you don’t have that one you can substitute with fresh berries. So here we have it: a red and pink kind of dessert dream. And I absolutely adore to texture of these cakes. Just like a classic one. Just without the useless empty calories. Opposed to that – this one is nutritious as it can get. Made from REAL ingredients which will leave you with a satisfied feeling afterwards. Isn’t that the best feeling?
Make sure to plan ahead by soaking the cashews. This is super easy. You simply take a large mixing bowl, add the nuts and filtered water. Check the recipe to see how many nuts you need and how long they need to be soaked.

- 300 g cashews - soaked for min 6hrs ⎪for the filling

Note: you can soak the cashews up to 24h prior to using them. Simply take a big bowl, fill with he nuts and filtered water. Have in mind that the nuts will soak up water so leave room for that.
Take your food processor, add the almonds and shredded coconut. Pulse them until you've a flour-like texture.
Add the other ingredients for the crust and mix again.
Take a 8 inch cake pan and line with parchment paper. Press the crust evenly into the pan and put in the freezer while making the cream layer.
Note: I've used my blender for the filling to get this super creamy texture.
Drain and wash the cashews. Add to your blender along with the other ingredients to the filling. Blend well.
Pour the cashew layer into your cake pan and freeze the whole cake for at least 6 hours. Preferably over night. Remove from the freezer one hour prior to eating. This cake holds up to 6 months once its frozen.
