Cacao layer 

  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • 2/4 tbsp Sweet Freedom
  • ¼ cup Kaizen Living cacao powder

Simply melt the coconut oil and Sweet Freedom, then stir in the cacao powder until a paste forms.

Pumpkin Spice layer 

  • ½ can unsweetened pureed pumpkin
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp Sweet Freedom
  • Mixed spice, cinnamon and nutmeg

Blend everything together so you have a smooth mixture.

Coconut Acai Berry layer

  • ½ can coconut cream (previously left in fridge for a few days to thicken)
  • 1 tbsp Hognuts Butter Cashew & Coconut
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2-3 tbsp dessicated coconut
  • 3-4 tbsp Stevia (or natural sweetener)
  • 2 tbsp Kaizen Living organic acai berry powder

Get making!
Once you have all of your layers prepared, the rest is simple! Grease 6 muffin tins well, then spoon the pumpkin mixture in first (about a third) until the mixture is used up, then the acai berry mixture, until it’s nearly at the top, then finally pour over the cacao mixture just so it fills to the top. Place in the freezer for about 4-6 hours at least.
