  1. Base: In a food processor or high speed blender, blend all base ingredients, excluding dates, until finely chopped. Then add the dates and blend again until you can press the mix together in your fingers and it sticks. Pour into a lined baking tin, press until firmly packed and flat, then place in the freezer to set.

  2. Raspberry layer: Blend the raspberry layer ingredients in a blender or processor until fully combined and like a liquid. Pour on the base and spread to flatten, then place in the freezer.

  3. Topping: Blend all topping ingredients except the coconut oil and shredded coconut in a high speed blender until silky smooth, scraping down the sides and blending again as needed. Then, while on low, add the melted coconut oil, and blend again on high until smooth. Add the shredded coconut, pulse, then spread carefully on the jam layer. Sprinkle the coconut flakes on top, and place in the freezer for a few hours to set, or in the fridge overnight.
