For the Creamy Part:

  • 2 frozen Bananas

  • 1⁄4 t Vanilla seeds

  • 1 t fresh Lime/Lemon juice

  • 1 T Marple syrup OR Coconut nectar

For the top layer:

  • 5 T Coconut Cream

  • 1 T Raw Cacao Nibs


HOW TO:


Blend all the ingredients for the base and press the mixture into the base of the cake tray..

2. Blend the soaked dates with yogi tea. Pour it over the base and let it rest in a freezer at least for an hour.

3. Blend bananas, cashews, and coconut cream with vanilla, salt, and your choice of sweetener.  You might need to stop a few times to encourage the mixture towards the center by using a spatula. 

Once done, add lime/lemon juice, mix well and transfer the heavenly cream into a bowl. Let it rest in a refrigerator .

4. Get the two layered (base&toffee) out of the freezer and pour the cashew-banana cream over it. Toffee layer should be nice and firm by now. Send it back to the freezer.

5. Blend the Coconut Cream with the your choice of sweetener. Transfer into a sealed container and let it rest in a refrigerator for at least an hour.

6. When the cashew-banana layer is firm, pour the coconut cream over it. Garnish any way you wish: chopped bananas, coconut cream, cacao nibs, coconut shreds, whatever your heart desires.


Freeze it again for at least an hour.

Frozen natural cakes like this need to be removed from the freezer at least 20-30 mins before we intend to serve it.

ENJOY.

Take good care of yourself and your loved ones.
