No Bake Christmas Cake- Vegan!

This frozen fruit cake is the perfect treat for Christmas celebrations! Here, when it's hitting 30, a refreshing dessert is always welcomed. This light, coconut infused, cake is ideal to wow your party guests and get away from the traditional heavy and rich Christmas cake.


400g dried fruit (mixture- think apricots, sultanas, cranberries, pineapple)
Water or Fruit Juice or Port Wine

100g mixed nuts
170g dry chocolate chip biscuits

2 tins coconut cream NOT LIGHT AND NOT MILK!
Ground ginger


Put tins of coconut cream in the freezer.

Line a springform pan with plastic wrap leaving enough on the outer edge to cover up when freezing later.

Add fruit to TM bowl. Chop 3x TURBO. Set in a bowl and soak in enough liquid to cover the fruit.

Add nuts, biscuits to TM bowl. Chop 2x TURBO. Add enough to the springform pan just to cover the bottom. Set the rest aside for later!

Wait 30 minutes for fruit to finish soaking. Then strain fruit. Put into a mixing bowl.

When ready to assemble...

Insert butterfly*. Take coconut cream out of freezer and do not shake. Open and scoop out the cream (the water has now separated to the bottom of the tin) and place in TM bowl. Whip until fluffy on speed 3.5 (about 30 seconds).

Add a few dashes of ginger to the fruit and begin to fold in the coconut cream using the spatula.

Scoop 1/2 of the mixture on to the crumb base and spread carefully to the edges. Add crumble (leaving a few tablespoons for the top) and repeat with the remaining coconut cream. 

Then top with the last of the crumble.

Cover with the overhanging plastic wrap. Place in freezer for at least 3 hours. 

Let sit for 15 minutes before serving. Remove spring form outer ring and slice with a sharp knife!

 *To properly insert the Butterfly in the TM bowl you must locate to highest blade with the bump. Then insert the Butterfly so that it pushed CLOCKWISE on the BLUNT edge of that blade. You must always slowly turn the speed up when using butterfly and never go past 4. This allows it to 'catch'. If you stop in between whipping you must also carefully hold the top of the butterfly when increasing to speed to ensure that it catches.
