Ingredients:

For the Base:

2.5 cups of almonds
10 medjool dates
1-2 tbsp of coconut oil
Pinch of sea salt

For the Chocolate Layer:

4 ripe avocados
1 cup of coconut oil
1.5 - 2 cups of raw cacao (depending how rich you like it)
Pinch of sea salt
1 cup of honey

 

Method:

Pulse the almonds in a blender until roughly chopped, then add in the pitted dates, coconut oil and salt and blend until they form a dough.
Line a cake tin with greaseproof paper and press the dough down evenly into it, then put in the fridge while you make the chocolate layer.
Blend the avocado flesh, coconut oil, cacao powder, salt and honey in a high speed blender until completely smooth - you may have to scrape down the sides a few times. Spoon this mixture over the almond and date base, then place in the freezer for one hour to firm up. After that it can be stored in the fridge.
