Raw Fruit and Coconut Ice Cream Cake with Brownie Crust [Vegan]

I am really loving coconut milk and frozen fruit as combination ingredients lately. If you're getting tired of it - I am sorry. But no need to fret, because summer is quickly approaching and she promises a fresh, local, always-changing variety of new produce each week at the farmers market. I am excited to be inspired every Saturday by the organic options available to make new raw food creations for myself, my family, friends, and you, of course! But for now - I must stick with frozen fruit, and coconut milk is an excellent pairing.

Raw Fruit and Coconut Ice Cream Cake with Brownie Crust [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Raw VeganVegan


Ice cream

  • 400 ml fresh raw coconut milk (or 1 can of store-bought)
  • 1/4 cup raw cane sugar (or preferred sweetener, to taste)
  • 1 banana

Brownie crust

  • 1/3 cup walnuts
  • 1/3 cup raw oats (or buckwheat groats for a gluten-free version)
  • 2/3 cup dates
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder


  • Whatever fresh or frozen you have or like, about 2 cups


Prepare the cake vessel

  1. Find a bowl that can hold about 6 cups, or use a small dome cake pan and line it with plastic wrap, tin foil or whatever. I used a dome shaped colander and plastic wrap, it worked fine. Alternatively you can just make this using a normal cake pan.
  2. Line the sides of the pan or bowl with your chosen fruit.

Ice Cream

  1. Blend all ingredients until smooth.
  2. Pour into your pan or bowl and put in the freezer until solid, about 3 or 4 hours.

Brownie Crust

  1. Put the walnuts, oats and cacao in your food processor and pulse until they become a flour.
  2. Add the dates and process until it starts to stick together.
  3. Press onto the “top” of your ice cream cake (it will become the bottom when you flip it later).
  4. Put in the fridge for about an hour to let everything set.
  5. Then carefully flip your cake onto a plate and take off your lining – voila!
  6. Decorate as you wish, slice, and let thaw before eating.

This looks delicious and I love the presentation. I think it\'s important to point out that there are a few ingredients that aren\'t raw vegan. Cane sugar most definitely isn\'t and there isn\'t any reason to use sugar as opposed to natural alternatives like pure maple syrup, date paste, coconut nectar or even coconut sugar. Most people won\'t know how to make truly raw coconut milk and the canned version is heat processed and usually has guar gum and/or carageenan in it. The other one is Raw Oats. Oats aren\'t truly raw either because they go through a steam process. Oat groats are the closest to raw, but the recipe doesn\'t say to soak and dehydrate first.
