5 ingredient Raw Berry and Coconut Slice
Combine anything berry + chocolate and it's a winner in my eyes. This slice is gluten and dairy free, vegan, full of antioxidants and good fats - A perfect anti-inflammatory combo!
1 Cup frozen mixed berry’s
1 1/2 Cup desiccated coconut
3/4 Cup coconut oil
1 Tbs Pure Maple Syrup OR 1/2 banana
100g 70% dark chocolate (I use green & blacks)
Blitz all ingredients except chocolate in a blender.
Press firmly into a baking dish lined with parchment paper and freeze for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt chocolate over stove on medium heat or in the microwave until runny.
Pour chocolate over berry mixture and place back in the freezer to set.
Keep in freezer until needed. Before cutting and eating, leave out of the freezer for 5 - 10 minutes to defrost.
*Note - For a raw and homemade chocolate topping add 1/4 cup melted coconut oil, 1/4 cup pure maple syrup and 2 Tbs cacao powder together and follow other steps as usual. This also tastes amazing when adding frozen cherries instead of berries!
