In this recipe, dates are used in the crust of the cake. Did you know that dates are also considered as superfood? They are not only delicious and naturally sweet but contain plenty of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and are considered asΒ  “happiness bombs”.




  • 275 g soft dates (I usually chop them to 3-4 pieces)
  • 180 g nuts (for this I used almonds and walnuts 1:1, but it can be pecans as well)
  • pinch of Himalayan salt


  • 200 g cashews (soaked for a few hours)
  • 200 g coconut cream or coconut milk also works
  • grated lemon zest of 1 organic lemon
  • juice of half of the lemon
  • two pinches of Bourbon vanilla powder
  • pinch of Himalayan salt
  • 2 tbsp probiotics for fermentation
  • 1-2 tbsp erithritol (or other sweetener, one can use dates, agave or maple syrup)


  • 100 g coconut oil, melted
  • 50 g raw cacao powder
  • 25 g agave syrup
  • dried rose petals for decoration (optional)


  1. Make the meal for crust by adding all ingredients to a food processor, it should be sticky, uniform and eventually form a ball. Use a 24 cm cake dish, line with parchment paper and transfer the meal. Use a spoon or your hands to press the meal down to for a uniform layer. Let the crust come up at the sides. Freeze it until you prepare the filling.
  2. Mix all ingredients for the filling in a blender or food processor until smooth. Spread it evenly on top of the crust with a spoon to form a uniform second layer.
  3. Now the fermentation process comes: leave the tray in room temperature for 12 hours. I covered the tray with a bowl, just to avoid anything dropping into it.
  4. After 12 hours the second layer should be firm and solid. Freeze the cake until you prepare the topping or a little bit longer.
  5. Melt the coconut oil and mix the cacao along with the syrup. Stir it until smooth.
  6. Take the cake out from the freezer and pour or scoop the chocolate on top. It will solidify fast, as the cake beneath the chocolate layer is frozen.
  7. Decorate it quickly with the petals or dried fruit pieces.


Serving suggestions

I suggest to thaw the cake once the topping solidified and cut it to the required slices. Keep the cake frozen until next time you decided to eat it. Take the slices out of the freezer about half an hour before consumption. Enjoy & share it!
