3/4 Cup Granola

Mango Layer:
1/4 Cup Chopped Dates
1 Cup Cashews, dry roasted, unsalted
2 Cups Diced Mango

In a high powered blender, blend together the water, coconut oil, and dates. 

Blend until smooth, then pour into a bowl with the coconut, and granola. 

Stir until combined, then press into a 9" round non-stick cake pan.

Set aside.


Prepare the Mango Layer:

In a high powered blender, mix together all ingredients for this layer. 

Blend until smooth, then pour into the cake pan on top of the crust. 

Use a rubber spatula to spread the filling evenly into the pan.

Set aside. 


Prepare the Coconut Layer:

In a high powered blender, mix together all ingredients for this layer. 

Blend until smooth. 

Either pour the filling directly into the pan and make a solid, even layer, or use a piping bag to create a unique design on the top of your mango layer. 

Sprinkle with shredded coconut, then place in the freezer for a minimum of 2 hours, or until set. 


Store the cake in a air tight container, in the freezer, and let thaw for 10 minutes before serving.
