  • 120 g Coconut oil, at room-temperature
  • 2 Kiwis
  1. Line a 20x11cm loaf pan with baking paper. Place chopped dried figs and toasted almond slices in a food processor. Process until finely chopped. Add in lime juice and process until a sticky mixture forms. Press the sticky mixture evenly into the bottom of the loaf pan.
  2. Place cashew nuts, freshly pressed lime and lemon juice, maple syrup and coconut oil in a food processor and process until smooth and creamy. Pour the filling onto the crust and smooth the surface.
  3. Peel and cut the kiwis into slices. Arrange the kiwi slices on top and chill for 2 hours or overnight until set. | © 2018 | | © 2018 |

First off = no bake = YES PLEASE. Secondly, kiwis remind me of GOOD MEMORIES from boarding school and third... That cashew custard has me drooling! Cashews were totally my favorite nut!
