Raspberry Cream BlissCake - vegan, gf, raw

Here's an even creamier take on my Lemon Blueberry BlissCake with an added "secret ingredient" for an even silkier texture: pureed fresh young coconut meat.  The hardest part of this recipe is removing the coconut meat from the coconut (the video tutorial I used the first time I tried can be found here).  Once you have done that, the rest is about patience.

The crust is fast, but the middle layer and topping take a long time in the food processor, up to 10 or more minutes per layer.  It might even take you longer if you don't have a great food processor.  You could do the raspberry topping in a Vitamix or ultra high speed blender as well, but the middle layer might be too thick.  With the added coconut it also sets quicker in the fridge, so you can enjoy it even faster.
