Passionfruit coconut slice


This do-ahead dessert keeps in the freezer for up to a month, making it the perfect stand-by sweet; cut it into portions before freezing and defrost them as required to make things even easier. We've topped ours with tangy passionfruit for a fragrant tropical note, but mango, banana or pineapple would also work well.

You'll need

70 gm desiccated coconut 75 gm macadamia nuts, soaked in cold water for 1 hour, drained 75 gm cashew nuts, soaked in cold water for 1 hour, drained 400 ml coconut cream 125 gm coconut oil, melted 70 gm rice malt syrup (see note) 1 tsp vanilla bean paste Passionfruit pulp and finely grated lime rind, to serve   Coconut crust 75 gm desiccated coconut 75 gm macadamia nuts 75 gm cashew nuts 35 gm coconut crunch (see note) 100 gm pitted dates 40 gm coconut oil, melted 40 gm rice malt syrup

Additional Notes

Rice malt syrup is available from health-food shops and select supermarkets. Coconut crunch is air-dried coconut flesh that remains after virgin coconut oil has been extracted. It’s available from select delicatessens and health-food shops; if it’s unavailable, add the same amount of psyllium husk or extra desiccated coconut instead.
