– 1/3 cup coconut oil
– 2 cups fresh mango
– 130g dried dates
– 1 Tbs desiccated coconut
– 1 tsp vanilla essence
– Juice of 1 lime
Grind the cashews into a meal and put aside in a bowl. Blend the dates, mango, coconut oil, coconut, lime juice and vanilla essence. Pour the blended mix into the bowl of cashew meal. Mix thoroughly then blend entire mixture (for a smoother consistency). Pour the mix on top of the crust in the cake tin. Decorate with slices of mango. Freeze for a around 4 hours before serving.
