Prep Time

Prep Time
3 hr
STUFF YOU NEED
    FOR THE BASE
    1. 3 cups shredded coconut
    2. 1 cup cashews (roasted is yum but then it’s not #raw)
    3. ¼ cup coconut oil
    4. 2 tbs. rice malt syrup or honey
    5. 1 tsp. 100% vanilla extract
    6. 1 tsp. cinnamon
    FOR THE FILLING
    1. 2 cups raw cashews (soaked in water overnight, then drained)
    2. 2 medium bananas
    3. 1 cup coconut milk (canned)
    4. ⅓ cup coconut oil
    5. 1 tsp. 100% vanilla extract
    FOR THE CARAMEL TOPPING
    1. 100 g (3 1/2 oz.) pitted dates (soaked in boiling water for 10 mins, then drained)
    2. 1/4 cup coconut milk (canned)
    3. 1/4 cup coconut oil (or butter for extra #yum)
    4. 1 tsp. 100% vanilla extract
    FOR THE OTHER EPIC TOPPINGS
    1. 2 bananas sliced
    2. Sugar free chocolate melted
    3. 1/2 cup walnuts chopped
    4. 2 tsp. coconut sugar (or honey/rice malt syrup)
    NOW WHAT
    1. Line a 24 cm (10 inch) spring-form cake tin with baking paper.
    2. Place all the base ingredients in to a food processor or blender. Whiz until well combined, it will become a smooth butter. Yum!
    3. Spread the mix in to the prepared tin, shake it a little to ensure it is even.
    4. Place the tin in to the freezer.
    5. Let’s get onto the filling!
    6. Drain and rinse the cashews and place them in to a food processor/blender along with the rest of the filling ingredients.
    7. Whiz until completely smooth, this will take around 5 minutes.
    8. Pour the mixture on top of the base, shake to even out and place back in to the freezer for 2 hours, or until set.
    9. Once the cake is set take the cake out of the freezer and rub the outside of the cake tin with a hot cloth and release the spring-form slowly (you may need to run a knife around the edge).
    10. Now time to decorate with EPIC toppings
    11. CHEATS/QUICK OPTION - toppings are totally optional… choose a few or do them all!
    12. Start with the caramel sauce, place all the ingredients into your blender and whiz until a thick, caramel sauce is happening. Taste test. YUM. Set aside.
    13. In a small fry pan toast your walnuts and coconut sugar on low heat. Again this makes it not #raw... so you choose... it's just that toasted walnuts taste SAH good.
    DECORATE
    1. Start with slices of banana, then dollops of caramel sauce, then toasted yummy walnuts, then drizzle with chocolate.
    2. Make it look EPIC! Share a photo with us on social, use #getmerry!
    MERRYMAKER TIP
    1. All your leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the freezer! We like to pre-slice, then freeze, so it's super easy to defrost when it's Banoffee time! YAY!
