Raw vegan pear-passion-kiwi cake

I made this cake in a hurry, but with a double special occasion, for my dear husband. Being a cake for a men, I stayed out of any pink layer and put more accent on green.

Here it is, my second raw vegan cake. It could not stop to impress me how easy and healthy these kind of cakes are.

Crust:
  • 150g almonds
  • 150g cashew
  • 100g pitted dates
Filling 1:
  • 150g soaked cashew

  2. Put the ingredients for the crust in a mixer with an S blade and mix for 3-4 minutes until the dates are making the composition more consistent.
  3. Put the crust as a base for the cake, on the bottom of the springform pan.
  4. With a spoon, press well the crust and level it nicely on the bottom of the pan.
  5. Put it in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile prepare the first filling. First heat the coconut oil until becomes liquid (30-40ÂșC)
  7. Drain the cashew of water and add all ingredients for filling 1 in the blender.
  8. Blend for 5 minutes until you obtain a smooth cream.
  9. Take the pan out of the freezer and pour this composition over the crust. Layer it nicely with a spoon or spatula.
  10. Put the pan back in the freezer for 30-60 minutes.
  11. Prepare the second and the third filling in the same way with the correspondent ingredients.
  12. Take the pan out of the freezer again and pour this second composition over the crust. Layer it nicely with a spoon or spatula. Do not forget to place the pan in the freezer after each filling for 30-60 minutes.
  13. Slice the kiwi and decorate the cake with them and blueberries.
  14. Return the pan back in the freezer for 30 minutes.
