This raw vegan cherry ripe slice is simply amazing. It tastes like cherry ripe but is vegan. I have tried this recipe many times and have finally managed to create the taste I was looking for. All the elements are the same, just the quantities that have been adjusted. Try this, it’s so delicious. A healthy snack that even my kids eat. You can freeze a batch of these and save for later. This is a no-bake treat.

Raw Vegan Cherry Ripe Slice
Makes about 30 squares (give or take)
1/2 cup cashews
1 and 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1/3 cup coconut cream
2 Tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
3 Tablespoons honey
1 Teaspoon vanilla essence
1 cup dried cranberries (Craisins)
1 cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)
2 Tablespoons cacao powder
2 Tablespoons maple syrup
pinch of salt
What do I do now?
Blitz the cashews in a food processor until they look like a rough crumb. Mix this together with the coconut, coconut cream, melted coconut oil and honey. Place this in a tray and pat down to form a thin layer (you can use a smaller tin and make the layers thicker if you prefer)
Blitz the cranberries and coconut in a food processor until thoroughly mixed. Sprinkle evenly on top of the base layer.
Melt the coconut oil and maple syrup and add to the cacao powder. Pour over the other 2 layers and place in the fridge to set – it takes a couple of hours to set and will become soft pretty quickly if you leave it out of the fridge for a while.
Anything else I should know?
You can freeze these in batches for later. Experiment with the size of the layers depending on your preference. Enjoy!
