Raw mango cake

Raw mango/lemon/coconut milk cake

Simple, yet very delicious desert that takes 20min to prepare and is actually good for you!


1 cup almonds
1 cup Medjool dates
¼ cup dried coconut
2 tablespoons coconut oil
pinch of  salt


1 cup soaked cashews  (I had to use almonds simply because I didn’t have cashews)
5 tablespoons of freshly squeezed orange juice + 1 lemon zest
2 tablespoons coconut oil
½ cup thick coconut milk
3 tablespoons of agave nectar
1 big ripe mango

In a food processor, mix all the ingredients for the base until it forms a nice dough. If you don’t have food processor, first grind the almonds  in a grain mill or coffee grinder. Melt the coconut oil,  blend the dates (I soak mine overnight) with 30ml extra water in a blender. A high powered blender would be best for this, but a hand blender or other type of blender should work well too if they are well soaked. Add a little extra water if necessary, not too much. Combine all of the ingredients to make a dough. Press the dough evenly into the base of a spring form pan. Place in freezer until solid.
In a high powered blender, process the almonds, coconut oil and milk, agave and chopped mango until it is creamy. Add lemon juice and zest. Mix it in.
Pour the filling into the base and place it in the freezer for a few hours. To serve, remove from freezer 20-30 minutes prior to eating.

    I’ve never tried making raw cake before, I know ice cream and truffles, they have been a great hit in our family. We’re thinking of getting a proper food processor so I can make more raw food for us. This cake looks super yummy!

  2. It looks very tasty :) I should try one like this . In my fridge at this moment rests raw pie with summer berries 😉

  3. oooh, I love these! never made them at home though… you did great

  4. Alice, I too started with the ice cream, truffles and simple fruit/nut bars, this cake is a combination of those 3. A good blender is now on my shopping list too 😉
    Rasa, you’ve started it all, this trial is inspired by your cake reviews 😉
    Nini – you should give it a go 😉
