Ingredients

For the base:

  • 1.5 cups almonds
  • 2.5 cups medjool dates
  • For the middle:
  • 2 cups soaked cashew nuts
  • 2 frozen over-ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup to taste
  • 1/3 cup freshly juiced apple juice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

For the top:

  • 1 cup freshly frozen blueberries and a handful of frozen blackberries
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 4 medjool dates
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  • Before you make your cake/s be sure to slice the bananas and pop them in the freezer along with the blueberries until frozen, if you use pre-frozen ones they will be too watery.
  • Place the almonds in a food processor and blend until broken up into tiny pieces, they should still have some texture to them.
  • Add the pitted dates to the almond mix and blend until a sticky mix forms.
  • Press this into a loose bottomed cake tin or if making minis as I did, press into stainless steel chef rings on a large plate and put into the freezer.
  • Make the middle layer by blending all of the ingredients until smooth and creamy. I used my Nutribullet for this and it blitzed through it all with ease-such a handy kitchen tool to have for tasks like these, it really is very powerful.
  • Take the base layer out of the freezer and pour over the blended ingredients. Reserving about a quarter to use for the next layer.
  • Once the bottom and middle layer have been in the freezer for around 20 mins commence making the final layer.
  • Add remaining ingredients to the blended mix you reserved earlier and blend again until smooth and creamy.
  • Pour over the middle layer and pop back in the freezer for 2-3 hours.

Notes

Before you make your cake/s be sure to slice the bananas and pop them in the freezer along with the blueberries until frozen, if you use pre-frozen ones they will be too watery.
