  4. Place this in the freezer for 15-25 mins to harden.
  5. Meanwhile, blend the soaked cashews, lemon juice, water and yacon syrup together in a blender, keep blending until the consistency is completely smooth before adding your dry ingredients. 
  6. Add the cacao powder, coconut sugar, vanilla and salt. Blend well!
  7. Next, add the rest of your melted cacao butter 40g into this mixture and blend.
  8. Quickly, remove the base from the freezer and spread this combined filling out over the base. Press down firmly to avoid gaps. Bang down on the counter to remove any air pockets. 
  9. Smooth the filling down onto base with a hot wet spoon, to avoid sticking.
