Healthy Vanilla Slice Recipe

I prefer raw desserts…mostly because there’s no baking involved and the recipes always take under half an hour. Slowly I am redesigning the full fat/sugar desserts into more healthier options so that when I need a sweet fix, I have the natural approach at hand.




Vanilla slice is something I have missed, even though it was a slice I rarely had, it was always appreciated when I did. Raw cooking IS more expensive than the general baking with a packet mix, however it’s going to help with your healthy regime, so I am willing to spend the extra money.

Anyway it was time…..for the raw vanilla slice trial….turns out it’s not the same but it’s pretty damn delicious!! Recipe below…


2 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1 1/2 cup dates
1 tsp vanilla powder
pinch salt

1 cup cashews & 1 cup almonds (soaked 1-2 hours)
1/2 cup coconut cream
1/4 cup agave
1 tsp vanilla powder


1. Place all the base ingredients into a food processor and run until sticky mixture is formed. Press the mixture in the bottom of a cake tin and set aside.

2. Place all the filling ingredients into a food processor and run until smooth. Spread the mixture over the base and pop the cake in the freezer.

4.  When set (I leave it over night), cut into slices and serve! I do keep this in the freezer, however if you take it out 10 minutes prior, you get a nice soft consistency.

I am discovering some old classics in coming weeks like Choc Wedge and Turkish Delight…both of the healthy variety. This could be a disaster…but also it might work, I have only had 1 disaster when working on my own recipes, and that was the raspberry Amazeballs. They tasted like butt.
