For the crumble
Massage ingredients together. Place crumble mix onto a dehydrator sheet, allowing some of the mix to form large clumps. You want to combine this variety of textures in your dish. Dehydrate at 40 degrees overnight (see tips below for use in conventional oven).
You can serve straight from the dehydrator if you want a warm dessert, or keep at room temp in an airtight container until needed.
For the ‘custard’
Blend all ingredients together in a high speed blender until very smooth. Pour into a container and refrigerate overnight so the mix firms up slightly.
Peel and clean segments of mandarin, then cut in half. Place in bowl and add blueberries and raspberries.
Halve pomegranate and knock out seeds, strain seeds to bowl with fruit. Add coconut nectar and orange juice to any leftover pomegranate juice which may be left in bowl.
Scrape vanilla pod and whisk liquids together. Pour onto fruit and give a gentle stir.
Layer fruit into 4 glasses making sure there is a variety of fruits in each glass. Pour a little Custard on top of fruit. Place crumble on top of that and garnish with baby mint leaves.
*TIP: We use a dehydrator a lot at work to obtain a crispy texture whilst ensuring all our ingredients remain raw. If you don’t own a dehydrator, you can use a conventional oven on the lowest possible temperature, and placing the mixtures on baking paper instead of a silicon mat. However, if the lowest setting is above 42 degrees, the dish will no longer officially be considered ‘raw’, but the end result will be very similar in taste / texture. Timings will differ per oven, but generally slow and steady is best, as you don’t want your ingredients to cook! Allow at least 8 hours (or overnight) and keep an eye on the dehydration process in the final stages.
