Dairy Free Raspberry Ripe

I was asked over on Facebook, if I was able to share my version of  Sarah Wilson's Raspberry Ripple.

Sarah's version is made with butter, so I substituted  butter with coconut oil to make my version dairy free, as well as gluten and refined sugar free.

This is one of my favourite quick-to-make dessert recipes and is up there with my Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bars, Coconut Rough and Macadamia Chocolate Bark.




Dairy Free Raspberry Ripe

Serves 2 - 4


  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup raw cacao
  • 1/3 cup rice malt syrup (raw honey  pure maple syrup also works well)
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (coconut flakes works well also)
  • 1/2 cup of frozen raspberries


  1. Melt the coconut oil in a pan on low heat
  2. Add the cacao and your choice of sweetener and stir till it is well combined and the sweetener has melted. It usually takes around 5 minutes and I whisk it to make sure that it combined well.
  3. Arrange the raspberries and coconut on a sheet of baking paper on a baking tray or plate
  4. Pour the mixture over the top and mix through the raspberries and coconut with a fork
  5. Place in the freezer for approximately 30 minutes
  6. When it is firm you can slice it or break into shards
