Of course, full credit goes to Deliciously Ella for this delectable creation – this recipe features on page 193 of her cookbook.

From experience her recipes normally work out creating too much for me, so I have halved the measurements to suit my needs.

Please make sure you take into account that this recipe requires time-consuming freezing and soaking in preparation. Ensure you start out nice and early.

Method

  1. PREP: Slice up the three bananas and freeze for 1.5 hours, with the blueberries
  2. PREP: Soak the cashew nuts for at least 1.5 hours

The Base

  1. Blitz the almonds in a food processor until crushed
  2. Add the dates and blitz together until a sticky mixture forms
  3. Press the mixtures into the bottom of a cake tin
  4. Place into the freezer

The Middle Layer

  1. Mix all the middle layer ingredients in a food processor until smooth
  2. Pour 3/4 of the mix on top of the base
  3. Place back into the freezer for at least 10 minutes

The Top Layer

  1. Add all the top layer ingredients into the food processor, with the rest of the middle layer ingredients and blitz
  2. Pour into the cake tin, on top of the middle layer
  3. Place back into the freezer for at least 1.5 hours before serving. Store in the freezer for best enjoyment

The great thing about this recipe is that it can be so easily modified, try swapping the blueberries and strawberries, for other delicious combinations.
