Total Preparation Time 50 minutes
Can be frozen
- desiccated coconut - 250g, full fat, or coconut butter
- vanilla pod - 1, seeds only
- coconut oil - 120g
- cocoa powder - 50g (either Dutch processed or raw cacao)
- rice malt syrup - 60g
- Using a small sharp knife, slice along the vanilla bean lengthways. Then, using the back of the knife, scrape the seeds away from the bean.
- Add desiccated coconut (250g) to the bowl. Program 1 minute / 37C / Speed 8.5. Scrape down sides.
- Program 1 minute / 37C / Speed 8.5. Scrape down sides.
- Repeat, program 1 minute / 37C / Speed 8.5. Check your mixture. If you have a pourable consistency, set aside. If not, it could be because of the way it was produced with too much of its oils taken out. As an alternative if this occurs, you can blend the coconut with a little melted coconut oil, melted cocoa butter ( 40g), liquid sweetener e.g. honey / maple syrup / rice malt syrup (1 Tbsp) and some vanilla bean (fresh or powder). Sure, it will be a little different, but at least it won't go to waste!
- Remove as much of the coconut mixture as possible.
- If your coconut oil (120g) is solid, add it to the bowl and melt 1 minute / 100C / Speed 2.
- Add vanilla (1), coconut oil (120g), cocoa powder (50g) and rice malt syrup (60g). Process Speed 6 / 15 seconds.
- Now pour it into your tin and set in the freezer for 15 minutes.
- Once it has set, pour the coconut butter layer over and set for a further 15 minutes and then transfer to fridge.
- Turn over the tin and it will literally just pop out. Chop into bite sized pieces and store in the fridge or freezer before serving. Beware that it won't last long out of the fridge before softening, so it's best served at home.
