Instructions
To make the crust:
  1. Make a chia egg in a small bowl and set aside. Blend dates in food processor to break them up. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until sticky crumbles form.
  2. Press firmly into parchment-lined 7″ springform pan.
To make the filing:
  1. Blend 1 1/2 cups pineapple and zucchini in food processor. Scrape down sides and add in the solid cream from 1 can of coconut milk, plus 1/3 cup of the second can. Add remaining ingredients. Blend well.
  2. Pour 3/4 of filling into crust. Place a layer of diced pineapple on top of the cake (up against the edge, too). Set in freezer.
  3. Add a big handful of pineapple to the food processor and blend again. Pour on top of cake.
  4. Garnish with pineapple and set back in freezer for 3 hours to harden.
To make the whipped cream:
  1. Use the leftover coconut cream (about 2/3 cup). Scoop into a bowl and whip with a hand mixer until fluffy. Add sweetener and vanilla to taste. (I used about 1 Tbs maple syrup and 1 tsp vanilla)
Recipe Notes

Store in the freezer. Should last several weeks, covered tightly.

To serve, let sit at room temp for 1 hour or more, until softened to your desired consistency. More frozen will have an icy texture, like a snow cone. More thawed will have a creamier texture. Both are delish. It’s your choice 🙂
