Cake Base

Press the base into a spring form lined with baking paper and leave in the fridge while preparing the cream layer.

Cream layer
Blend all the ingredients for the layer except the blueberries in a blender adding a little water to make sure the ingredients mix well and a smooth consistency is reached.

Then take half of the cream away and blend the blueberries with the rest of the cream. Spread some white cream evenly over the base, then some blueberry mixture and swirl it around, if you like. Put the cake in the freezer until solid for about 3 hours or overnight.

Step 4: ​Coconut & Flower Decoration

I'm always looking for desserts that contain raw foods and no refined sugar and fresh fruit. This is perfect, I look forward to making it!
