Eat Pretty: Raw Raspberry Chocolate Freezer Cake


-1 cup walnuts
-1/2 cup sunflower seeds
-10 moist dates, chopped
-2 tbsp raw cacao powder (cocoa powder will work)
-2 tbsp honey
-1 tbsp water
-pinch of salt

-2 cups cashews, soaked overnight or at least 4 hours
-1/3 cup honey
-2 tbsp raw cacao butter, gently melted (coconut oil will work but cacao butter tastes incredible!)
-2 cups raspberries (frozen work great if thawed)
-pinch of salt

Chocolate Sauce:
-2 tbsp honey
-1.5 tbsp raw cacao powder
-1/8 tsp water

1. Line bottom of 7 inch springform pan with parchment paper or plastic wrap.
2. Put all crust ingredients in to food processor and pulse to combine. The crust should be just sticky enough to hold together.
3. Press mixture into the bottom of the springform pan creating an even layer.
4. Put the crust in the refrigerator or freezer while you start on the filling.
5. Put all of the filling ingredients in the food processor and blend until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl when needed. Be patient. This will take about 4-5 minutes to get really smooth.
6. Pour filling over the crust and use a spatula to create and even layer.
7. Place in freezer for at least 3 hours. If you freeze it longer, take it out 30 minutes before eating to thaw.
8. Combine chocolate sauce ingredients stirring until combined. Drizzle over the cake and serve.

*Running the knife under hot water will make slicing easier.

    Where is that spoon from?!

    • Miss Maize

      It's a set of vintage measuring spoons. I actually own a set; handed down to me from my grandmother. This is the first time I've ever seen another set. Love it!

    This looks like a really filling dessert perfect for ending a salad meal with in the summer!

  • Chelsea

    Definitely! It will taste delicious- just won't be technically "raw"

  • A Little Lilly

    This is fun! Admittedly, I haven't been a fan of most raw "replacements" (pizzas, burgers), but the desserts are super tasty and I never feel as though I've overdone it on sugar afterward. I frequent the local raw foods restaurant just for the sweets and I'm not even vegetarian!

    I love The Naked Fig!

    I made this! I cut the recipe in half and skipped the sauce because I'm lazy and the sunflowers seeds because I don't like the taste. Super good! I had to stop myself from eating it all at once. Thanks for the recipe!

  • Bike Pretty
