Blackberry Lime Hearts


  • 1/3 cup lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • zest from 2 limes
  • 1 cup cashews, soaked until soft
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup agave or desired sweetener
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 cup fresh blackberries
  1. Blend all heart ingredients (except blackberries) until smooth.
  2. Place a layer of berries in the bottom of your mold. I use this one: silicone heart mold
    Fill with lime mixture almost to the top. They will expand a little with freezing.
  3. Drop the pan a few times to get the air bubbles out.
  4. Freeze until solid.
  5. Un-mold and top with ganache.


  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup agave
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  1. To make ganache, whisk all ingredients together. You will have extra
  2. ganache but it stores well.

    I love love love this recipe. I made it twice now and it’s delicious. It makes it fun since I can now have a yummy frozen dessert while my hubby has his ice cream sandwich. I love this way more than his dairy products. Thank you for creating a yummy for those that cannot have dairy or choose not to.

    This is my favorite frozen dessert. The combination of flavors is pure heaven and so refreshing. I use the smallest blackberries I can find. The lime juice has to have a really nice flavor since there’s a lot of it. I soak the cashews really well so they add texture without a lot of cashew flavor.. Before eating the hearts I let them sit out for 10 or 15 minutes after unmolding them . An hour in the fridge might work too.

    How do you serve? Frozen? Or sit in the fridge after frozen?

    I heard these recipes are only for specials occasion and not to over use them because to much of anything isn’t good.

      They are desserts and should be treated as desserts. :-)

    For the ganache do you use cacao powder or cacao liquor?

    It says to blend all ingredients in heart list
    Do you mean blackberries too

    • Susan wrote on July 4, 2013

      No, you do not blend the blackberries with the other ingredients. :-) I have corrected the instructions.

    Oh wow! What a creative dessert. I bet the ganache really sends these over the top.
    I have so many frozen blackberries from last year’s pickings. Do you reckon I could use frozen instead of fresh? After all they’re going to be frozen anyway..
