Recipe: Raw Matcha Mint Slice

Green happens to be the colour of one of my favourite ingredients/ flavour - green tea aka matcha! Coincidentally, I had to use up some leftover peppermint and matcha slices recipe is all around the world wide web. Ching - a massive light bulb moment and this raw matcha mint slice is created with a little tweaks and improvising!

The cook time isn't exactly 3 hours but it is advisable to leave in the freezer overnight and 24 hours cooking time ain't that appealing.

Prep time: 30 mins

Cook time: 3 hours

Total time:  3 hours 30 mins

Ingredients

Base:

  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup roasted almond
  • 2 tbsp almond milk

Filling:

  • 11/2 cup soaked raw cashews (soaked for at least an hour, preferably over night)
  • 1/2 desiccated coconut
  • 1/4 cup cold pressed virgin coconut oil
  • 2 1/2 tsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp Match Maiden powder
  • 2 cups fresh mint leaves*
  • 1 1/2 tbs natural honey [br]

Chocolate:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup cocao
  • 1 tbs natural nut butter
  • 1 tbs organic pure maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar

Instructions

  1. Process all of the base ingredients in a food processor until well combined and a crumble like texture is formed. (Start with desiccated coconut, almond meal, roasted almonds. Then Pitted dates and almond milk last).
  2. Press down the base in a baking tray (lined with baking paper for easy removal) and pop it in the freezer to set.
  3. (Whilst the base is setting) Blend all the ingredients until a smooth creamy consistency is formed. Smooth out the filling on top of the base layer using a spatular and place back in the freezer.
  4. Then, mix the coconut oil** with the rest of the chocolate mixture, and stir it until the texture is consistent and smooth.
  5. Spread chocolate on top and place back into the freezer and let it set overnight.

Notes

*You may substitute it with one tsp of peppermint oil [br][br]** If your coconut oil is still in solid form, melt it under very low heat.

It tastes AH-MAZING although I think it's a little too "rich" compared to my matcha balls as it is very nut heavy. The mister seems to like it rich though. :) So, do take that into consideration if you are not a fan of nuts! Otherwise, I say give it a go and don't forget to tag me on Instagram or Facebook so I can check out your creation too.
