Creamy Dreamy Orange Ice Cream Cake

Apologizing in advance for these photos once again. Back in August when I was in Tennessee I dropped my camera and it works well for a while but then malfunctions or something and I end up taking over 50 photos of the same recipe and only getting one or two presentable photos. It’s very frustrating for me to spend so much time on something and then come to realize that the results are so poor. But here we are! And all will be well with my photographs someday. (Preferably sooner rather than later but we’ll see.)

Anyways, on to the important part of this post. The recipe! This cake consists of three layers; the soft bottom vanilla layer, the middle smooth and flavor bursting caramel layer, and the orange citrus gelato-like layer. Combined with some blueberries to achieve ice cream heaven.

Creamy Dreamy Orange Ice Cream Cake

serves 8-10

Vanilla Base Layer:
4 bananas, frozen
1 teaspoon vanilla

In blender or food processor blend together. Pour into 7×7 inch dish. I line mine with parchment paper to make it easier to remove and serve. Place layer in freezer to set up completely. Approximately 1 hour.

Caramel Middle Layer:
1 cup dates
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup almonds
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon coconut oil

In blender or food processor blend together all ingredients. Pour over frozen vanilla base layer and spread evenly. Place in freezer to set up. Approximately 1 hour. This layer most likely won’t freeze completely. Pouring top layer on semi-frozen caramel layer will work out just fine.

Citrus Top Layer:
4 oranges, peeled
2 bananas, frozen
Blueberries, to top

In blender, blend together and pour mixture over caramel layer. Throw in some blueberries if your heart desires, if not leave as is. Place in freezer to set up completely. About 2-3 hours. Serve, enjoy!!
