Caramel Slice Re Vamped

Caramel Slice Re-Vamped 

Who doesn’t love a delicious slab of gooey caramel slice??
Yes, back in my 'unconscious’ living days I was one of those teenagers who use to come home from high school, delve deep into the fridge to grab out a can of condensed milk and sit there with a tea spoon…. Yes I did…. 
I couldn’t get enough of this sweet nectar….

Ok, so it's been years since I have done that. Now with a new change of perception and awareness, these days I get my sweet craving fix from whole foods… whilst nourishing my body, not depleting it. Pure guilt free goodness (and yes you can over indulge on the good stuff too).

I recently helped facilitate a conscious living workshop with three beautiful souls. One of the creations was a RAW caramel slice… so this blog is dedicated to them.. Thanks for the inspiration Kerry, Michael and Amanda and for being part of this conscious global wellness revolution - creating change and better solutions for all. 


3 Layers of LOVE:

1/2 cup of dates (pitted and soaked if not medjool)
1 1/2 cups of almonds or cashews soaked (or any of your fav nuts)
2 drops of Valor essential oil (optional, can use any YL oil you like! Or vanilla extract)

Gooey sauce:
1 cup dates (pitted) and soaked if not medjool dates
1/2 cup maple syrup 
1/2 cup tahini
1/2 cup coconut oil
dash of vanilla extract
1 cup of raw cashews, soaked
Pinch of sea salt

Choc top:
1/2 cup coconut oil
4 tbs of cacao powder
4 tbs of maple syrup/honey/coconut nectar 

Start with the base. Blend the dates and nuts together in a food processor until it’s at a fine consistency. Add the oil or vanilla extract and blend once more. Grease a slice tin with coconut oil and spread the base layer out on the bottom. Freeze for about an hour.

For the gorgeous gooey sauce; blend all of the ingredients together until it’s nice and creamy. Pour over frozen base… place back in freezer for about 30 mins

Onto the last layer of LOVE chocolate :)
Melt the coconut oil (if not already) mix in cacao powder and sweetener of choice. Whisk until it's at a nice velvety creamy texture and pour over the two layers. Place back in the freezer for an hour and indulge... 

Enjoy this little piece of heaven...
Pure guilt free goodness straight from Mother Nature :)
The addition of Young Living essential oils takes your food creations to a whole new vibration level..... I chose the blend valor today just to add a new level of flavour and energy to the slice :)
