Preparation

  1. Combine the dates and walnuts in a food processor. Pulse until a "dough" is formed. Press into the bottom of a springform pan. Then, cut the strawberries into thin slices and line them along the side of the pan. Place the pan in the fridge while making the chocolate layer.
  2. In the food processor, combine avocados, banana, melted coconut oil, cacao, vanilla, coconut nectar, and sea salt. Pulse until the avocado is fully creamed with the other ingredients. Add more coconut nectar to taste (depending on the size of your avocados, you will need more/less sugar). Remove the crust from the fridge and pour the chocolate layer evenly over the crust. Freeze while making the berry layer.
  3. In a blender or the food processor, combine pre-soaked dates (strained), frozen blueberries, frozen strawberries, and non-dairy milk. Blend/process until the smooth. When the chocolate layer is set, pour the berry layer evenly over the chocolate. Freeze for 2-3 hours or overnight.
  4. Once frozen, leave the pan out to soften for 5 minutes before opening the springform pan. Finish it off by topping with fresh blueberries. Serve slightly softened, but still semi-frozen.
