Mint chocolate slice

Mint chocolate slice

One for the choc-mint lovers.

We have used macadamia nuts in the filling of this mint chocolate slice, however you may wish to replace with cashew nuts for a more subtle flavour. This dessert has an enhanced nutritional profile thanks to the addition of matcha powder – pure stone ground green tea.

Serves 8.

Ingredients

Base

1/3 cup buckinis
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup desiccated coconut
5 medjool dates
1 tbsp filtered water
1 tbsp cacao powder
1 tsp coconut oil

Filling

1 1/2 cups macadamias or cashews (soaked for 3-6 hours)
3/4 cup coconut yoghurt
3 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp matcha powder
2-3 drops food grade peppermint oil, or to taste
1/4 tsp Himalayan salt

Method

  1. Combine all ingredients for the base in a high power blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Press into the base of a greased and lined spring-form cake tin (15cm diameter) and place in the freezer while you make the filling.
  3. Drain and rinse soaked macadamias. Place all filling ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth and creamy, this takes a few minutes.
  4. Spoon the filling on the base and return to freezer for 4-5 hours (or overnight) to set.
  5. Place in the fridge 1-2 hours to allow to thaw and serve with melted raw chocolate.
