*Gluten Free, *Vegan, *No Bake

 

What you'll need:

1.5 cups of Cashews

1 cup of Almonds or Walnuts

1/4 cup of Coconut Oil

1 Can of Coconut Milk

2-4 tbsp Agave (depending on how sweet you want it)

1 Cup Medjool Dates (pitted and smashed down)

1-2 Lemons

5 Lavender Flower Stems (remove small flower buds and dispose of the stems) 

 

Food Processor or Blender

Muffin Pan

Freezer

Plastic Wrap

 

Step 1:

Soak 1.5 cup cashews in warm water for 30 minutes

 

Step 2:

Blend 1 cup of dates in food processor until they are broken up in small pieces and it begins to form a ball. 

 

Step 3:

Set dates aside and add 1 cup of almonds or walnuts to processor and blend until it forms a meal.

 

Step 4:

Add dates back into the food processor with the almonds or walnuts to form the dough for the crust. (optional: add a pinch of salt)

 

Step 5:

Grease muffin pan, roll dough into 1 inch balls, place into muffin plan and then press down until they become flat and form a crust. Place in the freezer to firm up while you continue to the next step.

 

Step 6:

The batter - put all together in food processor and blend until creamy and smooth (about 1 minute). 

1.5 cups cashews, 1 can coconut milk, 1/4 cup melted coconut oil, 2-4 tbsp agave, juice of 1-1.5 lemons plus some lemon zest and lavender flowers. Tip: start with less of the ingredients such as lemon, lavender, agave, coconut... and taste as you go so you can adust the flavor. It's a very forgiving recipe and you can make it work for your taste buds!

 

Step 7: 

Add batter to the crusts. Optional: top with more lemon zest and lavender. ( I like to use a toothpick to move the ingredients around and make it look pretty!) Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for 5 hours! They can be kept in the freezer up to two weeks. You can either defrost before eating or keep them frozen!

 

I hope you enjoy making these as much as your taste buds enjoy eating them! See you again soon for more Freespiritedwanderer Creations. Much love and Namaste!
