Sunshine Lemon and Coconut Cake [Vegan, Gluten-Free]



Cook Time



For the Crust:

  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 cup coconut chips
  • 6 soft dates, soaked
  • 2 heaping tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons coconut nectar
  • 2 tablespoons açaí powder
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

For the Topping:

  • 1 cup coconut milk, from can refrigerated overnight and the solid cream from the top
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil


To Make the Crust:

  1. Place the oats in the blender and blend them on high until they resemble a fine powder.
  2. Add the base ingredients to a food processor and process them until they resemble fine crumbs and stick together when pressed.
  3. Spoon the mixture into a lined loaf pan and then press the mixture down with the back of a spoon.
  4. Place this in the freezer.

To Make the Topping:

  1. Add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend them until they’re smooth and creamy.
  2. Pour the cream over the crust and place the tin back in the freezer for a few hours (about 4-6 hours) to set.
  3. Remove the cake from the tin, slice straight away (separate them with parchment paper so they don’t stick together) and store the slices in an airtight container in the freezer.
  4. Allow them to thaw for about 30 minutes before serving.
