Ingredients:

For the base

1/2 cup of walnuts

1/2 cup of almonds

3 tablespoons chia seeds

1/2 cup pitted dates

1/2 cup dried figs

1/4 cup dried apricots

1/4 dried cranberries 

2 tablespoons desiccated coconut

1 tablespoon water

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice mix

For The Cashew Cream

1/2 cup cashews (that have been soaked in water overnight)

1/2 cup cashew milk 

1/2 cup desiccated coconut 

3 tablespoons agave syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

fresh figs to slice and decorate

Method:

  1. Add all the ingredients for the base in a food processor and let it do its’ job until mixture sticks together when pressed together. (Think energy-ball consistency!)
  2. Put the mixture in a pan, lined with plastic wrap (I used my brownie pan) and press it down using either your hands, a spatula or the bottom of a glass (as long as it is flat).
  3. Put the base in the freezer to set.
  4. Add the soaked cashews in the food processor and process for 2-3 minutes.
  5. While the processor is still running, add the cashew milk, coconut, agave syrup and vanilla extract. Stop when the mixture becomes smooth and creamy.
  6. Take out the fig base from the freezer and evenly distribute the cream on top.
  7. Return to freezer for a couple of hours for the cream to also set.
  8. Slice up fresh figs and decorate your masterpiece.
  9. Make sure to give the dessert at least 20 minutes to defrost before serving.
