Serves 1 cake
Time 1 hour

For the Base:

  • ¾ cup almonds
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • 3 tbsp cacao powder

Blitz these together in a food processor until it’s the texture of a course flour, then add:

  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil

Blitz until the mixture comes together into a ball. Remove the mixture to a separate bowl and stir in

  • 4 tbsp activated buckinis

Press the mixture evenly with your fingers into the bottom of a greased spring-form cake tin (I grease using coconut oil). Place in freezer to set.

For the Filling:

  • 1.5 cup cashews soaked in water overnight
  • 1 cup coconut cream
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • dash vanilla essence
  • dash coconut essence
  • pinch salt

Blitz all these ingredients together in a food processor or blender until beautifully smooth and creamy (you may have to stop the processor every now and then to scrape down the sides).

Place half the mixture into a separate bowl.

To the other half (still in the blender) of the mixture, add

  • 1 cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)

Blitz until raspberries are combined.

Remove cake tin from freezer. Spread the pink mixture on top of the base, using a spatula to spread out. Return to freezer for 10min to harden before then spreading the remaining (white) mixture on top and returning to freezer.

For the Toppings:

Decorate with your choice of toppings the return to the freezer to set completely!
