Red Velvet Slice With Cashew Frosting

Show stopping, pretty and perfect a Red Velvet Slice recipe complete with two healthy layers of deliciousness. Get set to experience the timeless magic of a classic that's about to redefine your dessert expectations.
This no bake red velvet slice tastes nothing like the real thing- and that’s a good thing in my opinion, because who needs to eat chocolate cake with red food colouring in it? The answer - not me. In fact, there is no need for red food colouring in my diet (or yours) at all.
This healthy red velvet slice contains only wholesome ingredients. This means no white processed flour, sugar, butter, oil, sweetened condensed milk, cream cheese or artificial food coloring.
The bottom layer is chocolatey with beetroot, nuts, coconut and dates to sweeten. The top layer is rich, delicious, vanilla, cashew, butter cream frosting.  
This is hands down the best slice I ever made! I am not kidding. I have made many amazing desserts like brownies, cakes, cheesecakes and so on, but this one is so special. It’s rich, moist, soft, creamy, lush, and super delicious!
The stunning red hue is all natural, coming from beetroot, one of the winter’s most nourishing vegetables which has a huge array of health benefits, especially raw. Combining it with a selection of nuts and coconut, it's the perfect guilt free treat to have in the fridge for when those sugar cravings appear or you get the snack attacks!
Beets are an excellent source of folate, a B vitamin and a very good source of manganese, potassium, and copper that are essential for healthy muscles, bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas to name a few. They are also high in dietary fiber, magnesium, phosphorus, immune-boosting vitamin C, iron, and vitamin B6.
But, that’s not all! Beets are furthermore valued for supporting the body’s natural detoxification process and helping to purify your blood and your liver.
See? Nothing at all like the real thing, but so much better.
This red velvet cookie slice is so easy to make as well, it probably should be illegal. But when you cut it up into bars and plate them, they look so pretty and perfect and divine, people will swear you had to have spent hours making them. If only they knew! But we know. Cause we’re awesome..
So what are you waiting for? All you need is a handful of simple ingredients you might already have in the pantry and a food processor or blender to get started.
Perfect for any celebratory occasion, Red Velvet Slice is a versatile and universally loved dessert option. Imagine indulging in a piece of history that's not only steeped in tradition but also packed with a modern twist of flavor and healthy ingredients.
Whether it's a special occasion or just a sweet craving,  this recipe is your go-to for a slice of nostalgia and a whole lot of yum. Get ready to savor every moment – because this classic beauty is a true celebration of taste!

Ingredients

Red Velvet Layer

  • 1 cup red beets, raw, chopped
  • 1 cup almonds, or walnuts
  • 1/2 cup dates, soaked 30 minutes and drained
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/4 cup cocoa or cacao powder

Cashew Butter Cream Frosting

  • 1 cup cashews, soaked 3+hours and drained
  • 1 13.5 oz can coconut cream, full fat (solid part only) *see note below
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

Red Velvet Layer

  • Note: Place the can of coconut cream or milk in the fridge or freezer for at least 1-2 hours before making these bars to allow coconut cream to separate.
    Line an 8 x 8” baking pan or dish with parchment paper on the bottom and sides leaving some overhanging to act as a handle to get the bars out easier for cutting.
    Add all ingredients to the food processor and process until well combined into a sticky dough.
    Scoop out the mixture and press evenly and smoothly into the baking pan.
    Transfer to the fridge and let it firm up for around 30 minutes

Cashew Butter Cream Frosting

  • Open chilled can and scoop out the cream that has separated and set hard on the top. Save the remaining coconut water to use in a smoothie, drink, or discard.
    Place all frosting ingredients, cashews, coconut cream, coconut oil, honey and lemon juice into the food processor and process until smooth and creamy.
    Depending on the power of your blender this might take a few minutes. Stop blending to scrape the sides and continue to blend until very smooth. Taste test add more honey or lemon if you think it needs it.
    Pour the frosting over the chilled crust and spread evenly with a spatula or the back of a spoon, then place back in the fridge for 30 minutes or so.
    Take out, cut into 8-10 slices and enjoy! Store leftovers in the fridge or freezer
