Ingredients
  • For the base:
  • 50g rolled oats
  • 10 dates, pitted
  • 25g raw sour cherries
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • Pinch Himalayan pink salt
  • For the filling:
  • 150g pre-soaked cashews
  • 5 dates, pitted
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp water
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • 3 tsp solid coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp raw cacao (or cocoa powder)
Method
  1. To make the base, combine all of the ingredients using a food processor. Pulse a few times until you have a fairly smooth paste (I like the oats to still have a little texture).
  2. Line a tine (I used a 6" cake tin, but a smaller flan dish would be fine) with foil and spoon the mixture in, pressing down until you have an even layer. Cover and place in the freezer while you make the filling.
  3. Combine all of the filling ingredients in the food processor and blitz on a high speed until you have a soft, creamy mousse.
  4. Pour onto the base, smooth out using a spatula and return to the freezer until you want to eat it (I would suggest for at least 30 minutes).
  5. If you're not eating the pie in one sitting, cut segments and return the rest for the freezer. It should last for a few weeks.
Notes
Soak the cashews in water a couple of hours before making the cake. If you're in a hurry, this time can be reduced by using boiling water.
