  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cardamon

Add the base ingredients to a food processor and process till you get a crumble texture


Spread evenly the base in the tin form, pressing with a spoon or spatula


Place the form with the base in the freezer
