Very easy to make- I made a crust with 1 1/2 cups walnuts, 4 medjool dates and 1 tsp vanilla. Then lured filling in top and put in freezer. I do wish they would put subtitles on the recipe- like crust, filling and topping- some of these recipes you have to figure out - not tough but would be easier with more clearly defined

I just made this and it's delicious! I didn't get the crust right though, it never got sticky. Any suggestions?

I wanted to make this, put it in a cooler and bring it along on a road trip. Do you think it will hold up after being out of freezer for so long?

How long are the cashews soak and soak in water or the milk mentioned in the recipe?

I soaked the cashews in warm water for about an hour and put them through the food processor before I mixed everything together in the blender. This is going to quickly become a family favorite!
