Preparation

For the Crust: 

  1. Blend the dates with coconut oil and salt in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Add the nuts and grind by pressing the pulse button. You want the nuts to remain a little bit chunky.
  3. Transfer the mixture into a bowl and scoop 3tbsp to your muffin pan. Best if you are using mini ice cream scoop.
  4. Press each one down with your fingers t make it flat. By using a piece of plastic wrap, go over each one more time making it even more flat and smooth.
  5. When ready, place it into a freezer. It helps if you have a tray that you can place them on, since the silicon is flimsy.

For the Filling:

  1. Blend all the ingredients except pitaya powder in a food processor until smooth. If you find it too thick you may add little bit more coconut water.
  2. Transfer approximately half into a bowl and set aside.
  3. Add the pitaya powder into the other half and blend again until you get evenly pink mixture.
  4. Transfer to a bowl and take your crust out of the freezer.
  5. By using mini ice cream scoop, spoon, or piping bag, cover each crust with half of white mixture and half of pink mixture. It will take about 6tbsp, 3 per each mixture.
  6. When ready, tap the pans lightly to make them settle. Take the chopstick and make swirls from pink to white.
  7. Place them into a freezer overnight and store the rest of the cream in sealed container in a refrigerator.
  8. Remove them from the silicon pen the next day and decorate with the leftover cream.
  9. Fill the piping bag with both colors and test making sure both colors coming out evenly.
  10. Decorate your cakes and place into a refrigerator or leave it out for ½ hour before serving.
