Paleo Mango Vanilla Raspberry Raw Cake.

Six words: Paleo Mango Vanilla Raspberry Raw Cake.

Mango + Vanilla + Raspberry pretty much = the best flavour combination in history of all summery recipes. We’ve been testing out loads of recipes using Heilala Vanilla products and we’re absolutely LOVING them. Why? Well, Heilala is 100% vanilla. It’s the richest grade of vanilla in the Asia pacific region (meaning the taste is outta control yum), it’s directly from plantation to kitchen (meaning less handling and processing, yay!) AND they are fair trade. All #winning!  You’re absolutely going to LOVE this Mango Vanilla Raspberry Raw Cake! It’s SO pretty, easy to whip up and tastes all kinds of yum! Enjoy!

What’s even better? You can get your hands on Heilala Vanilla with a 20% discount (YAY) for the whole month of December! All you have to do is enter the coupon number “merrymaker” when you checkout!

  8. Add the Heilala Vanilla Extract and sweetener, whiz again until combined.
  9. Pour the filling mixture on top of the base, shake the slice tin to even out the top.
  10. Place the cake back into the freezer for at least 1 1/2 hours before slicing!
  11. Yum and super pretty!

  2. Hi sisters, stumbled across your website, still don’t know how I came about it… anyway just tried out your recipes, as I happen to have ALL of the ingredients – super …looking good! I was pouring in the coconut oil for the top layer, it’s quite a lot that we need to put in. Can we not have any coconut oil in that?
    Thanks 🙂

  4. My husband has just found out he has slightly higher chloresterol, the list of foods to avoid include coconut and coconut oil. Majority of your recipies have both. What can I replace the coconut with?

    Hi Karen, thanks so much for your comment. There’s actually quite a bit of research that has been completed regarding high cholesterol, inflammation and saturated fats. We’d encourage you to watch the documentaries ‘Cereal Killers’ ‘Carb Loaded’ as well as ‘The Paleo Way’ series (this is online for free at the moment!). These goes in to detail about this and how good quality, high fat foods (like coconut) don’t actually increase cholesterol, in fact they help reduce it! We’d really encourage you to google, research and look in to this a bit further 🙂 🙂

  6. Hi Emma & Carla, I made this the other day and it was AMAZING!! I am going to make this for my boy’s birthday party on Saturday but I was thinking of using some gelatine and making it in the fridge, not freezer? What do you think? Just because we will be serving it outside to a bunch of 6 year olds, it’s going to be HOT and it might melt too quickly…Thank you!! xx
