Place the desiccated coconut, almonds, 14 dates and 2 tsp cacao into a food processor, then process until smooth.
Press into the slice tin creating a compressed base.
Clean the food processor and add the coconut cream, drained cashews, 10 pitted dates and vanilla extract. Process until smooth, spread evenly over the base and put in the freezer while doing the last step.
