This was one of our first ever raw successes for which, I must say, we became rather famous amongst our friends. We received orders for giant bowls of the stuff! It’s very economical to make in large amounts. We serve this often at our parties.

Equipment – High-speed blender OR food processor

Timing – 25 min prep, 3-4h setting


1 C dates, pitted
1 C coconut oil
1/2 C water
1/2 C cacao powder
1 t vanilla powder
1 pinch of salt


Cover the dates in water and allow to soften – use warm water to speed up this process.
Add everything together in a food processor and process with the S-blade until completely smooth and mixed. This takes up to 20 minutes and is well worth spending the time.
Pour into a shallow dish and allow it to set in the fridge.
After about 3-4 hours, cut into squares.
Store them in an airtight container in the fridge.

Makes about 40 pieces.

Add in: Flavours such as mint, sweet orange, rose geranium or lavender. When using essential oils in food, remember to use food grade only.
