For a while now i’ve been craving ice cream cake and since halloween is around the corner i took my chance and decided to make a recipe for vegan ice cream cake. Best, decision, ever! Now ok what makes this recipe spooky you might ask? Well it’s green, purple, orange and attracts spiders, spooky right!? And yes i know its autumn and its getting colder, but i don’t care i, this cake is so delicious i could eat it while building a snow man. Ok lets do some pros and cons.
- Ice cream cake that you could have for breakfast.
- Its raw vegan
- Its takes only 15 minutes to make. Minimal effort, maximum reward.
- A perfect dish for a warm summer day (or winter, who cares)
- You can customise it to your own liking.
- Seriously, this has no cons, its raw vegan ice cream cake.
This week i’ve been testing this recipe a couple of times (i actually just used it as an excuse to eat this for breakfast a few days in a row) and couldn’t wait to share the recipe with you! This is another dish to have on your halloween party. Just serve it as soon as you take it out of the freezer, otherwise you’ll end up with a smoothie. This recipe will give you two mini cakes and after taking them out the freezer you can easily cut them into halves or quarters.
As usual you can play around with the ingredients. For this recipe i used a mix of cinnamon, cloves, and allspice but feel free to use other flavours like cacao, vanilla or mango by adding some frozen mangoes while processing the bananas. For the purple layer i used blackberries but you can definitely swap those for blueberries or other fruit. If you don’t have spirulina you can use matcha powder, spinach or wheatgrass to make the green layer. The crust of this ice cream cake is made using raw cashews, but if you or the person you are serving this to is allergic to nuts you can substitute the cashew nuts for oats or double the coconut. Also the persimmon layer is totally optional, but since they are in season and some extra ripe persimmons broke on the way home i thought “What the heck, why not throw some super ripe persimmon jelly on top “.
Now i definitely know you’ll impress your family and friends when you make them this ice cream cake. And if they don’t like it, just give them a hug, they obviously need it!
