Cooking time 10mins
Place cashews and dates in a medium bowl and cover with very hot water. Let soak for 2 hours to soften. Drain well.
Place drained cashews and dates, butternut squash and coconut milk in the Vitamix and process until smooth. Add cocoa and vanilla. Process again adding a bit more coconut milk if needed ot make a smooth, mousse-like texture. Chill at least 1 hour or until ready to serve. Garnish with raspberries and shredded coconut (optional).
