  • 1/2 cup medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • Pinch Himalayan Salt

Ingredients - Fillings

  • 2 cups almonds/cashews/macadamias, soaked and rinsed for at least 2 hours

  • 1/2 cup rice malt syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup coconut water or normal filtered water
  • 1 Tbsp Maqui Berry Powder

Method - Crust

  1. Place all crust ingredients into your Vitamix 2L Wet Container and pulse a few times on HIGH speed. Make sure you hold one hand on the container when doing this.
  2. Continue to blend on HIGH speed and use your tamper effectively to push all ingredients down to the blade.
  3. Blend until you have formed a mold-able dough.
  4. In approximately 23cm cake tin, mold your crust evenly over the base. Place in the refrigerator to set.

Method: Filling

  1. Place all your filling ingredients into your 2L wet container EXCEPT for the Maqui Berry powder.
  2. Turn your machine onto variable speed 1 and then within about 3 seconds turn up to HIGH speed. Use your tamper effectively to push all ingredients down to the blade.
  3. Stop blending once you have a smooth consistency.
  4. Pour half of this mixture into your cake tin on top of your crust.
  5. With the other half of the mixture still in your wet container add the Maqui berry powder.
  6. Turn your machine onto variable speed 1 and then within about 3 seconds turn up to HIGH speed. Use your tamper effectively to push all ingredients down to the blade.
  7. Once you have a beautiful purple colour stop blending and pour the rest of your filling over the first layer.
  8. Grab a toothpick or skewer and swirl it around to create the marbled effect.
  9. Decorate with some berries and let it set in the fridge for about half an hour.
  10. Serve immediately after setting and enjoy!
