Ingredients – Dry

  • 1 cup dates
  • 1 cup hazelnuts
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 3 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp cacao butter, melted

Ingredients – Wet

  • 2 medium avocados
  • 1/2 cup plant-based milk (almond/rice/oat/soy all work great)
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup hazelnut butter
  • 1/4 cup + 3 tbsp liquid sweetener (I love coconut nectar or brown rice syrup)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup cacao butter, melted



  1. In a food processor or blender, blend the dates until chopped into small pieces.
  2. Add the dry ingredients (nuts, cacao and salt) and blend again until everything is finely chopped, almost to a flour but still with some texture.
  3. Finally add the liquids (vanilla and melted cacao butter), and pulse to combine – the mixture should stick together between your fingers when pressed (if not, add an extra tablespoon of melted cacao butter or coconut oil).
  4. Pour into a French fluted tart tin lined with biodegradable wrap, press until firmly packed and then place in the freezer to set.


  1. Blend all filling ingredients, except cacao butter, in a processor or blender until super smooth and creamy.
  2. Then, while on low, add the melted cacao butter until combined.
  3. Pour on the base, smooth to flatten, and place back in the freezer for an hour to set, or in the fridge for a few hours more. 


  1. Remove from the fridge/freezer and dust with cacao powder and crushed hazelnuts.
  2. Slice and devour! Will keep in the fridge for up to a week, or in the freezer for a month.
