  • Crust: Put all crust ingredients in your food processor, and process for at least 20 seconds, or until it is thoroughly combined into a dough. It should stick together slightly when pinched. If it doesn’t, you can add a tablespoon of water or a few more dates to the mix. Press into a 9×9 baking pan. Place the crust in the fridge or freezer to set while you make the cashew custard filling.
  • Cashew Custard Filling: Add drained cashews, water, maple syrup, vanilla, Let's Do...Organic® Creamed Coconut, and sea salt to a high-speed bender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Pour over the crust and smooth evenly with a spatula. Place in the freezer to set for 2 hours.
  • Chocolate Ganache: Place the maple syrup, Native Forest® Organic Coconut Oil, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and sea salt in the blender until creamy and emulsified. Spread evenly over the cashew custard filling and chill for another 4 hours.
  • Cut and serve.
