5 medjool dates, pitted

Method

In a bowl, place 2 cups of cashews and cover with water, soak for 4 hours

Drain and rinse when ready to prepare the slice. Grease a loaf pan and line with baking paper
In a food processor blend the base ingredients together. Process until it forms a crumbly mixture. Press the crust evenly into the bottom of the loaf pan

Place in the freezer for 15 minutes

In the same food processor, blend the filling ingredients until it forms a smooth consistency

Remove the base from the freezer and place the filling over. Place back into the freezer for 1 hour to set
Once the slice is ready to serve, pour the remainder of the passionfruit pulp over the slice. Cut into squares and serve. This slice is best served cold and will need to be stored in the freezer so it doesn’t melt
