I made this cake for my daughter and her fiancé to celebrate one year of being together. It is so quick and easy (with the right equipment....vitamix) . I learnt how to make a variation of this from the wonderful creative Chef AJ. Be sure to check out all of her cooking webinars for nutrient dense calorie light recipes.
The only ingredients are fruit so there is no guilt in having a second slice. You will need to freeze the fruit overnight so plan ahead just a bit.
Decide on your layers, try pick contrasting colors for more of a rainbow effect. For this cake I made the first layer peach, the middle was strawberry and the top layer was blueberry. I could have flipped the cake upside down once it was frozen but I had some green grapes that I wanted to use for decoration and they contrasted nicely with the purple blubbery ice-cream.
For each layer I blend 2 frozen bananas with a cup and a half of colorful fruit
Blend frozen bananas and frozen peaches in a high speed blender until it becomes like soft serve ice-cream. Using a spatular spread it in the bottom of a spring form pan. Be sure to wipe the sides of the pan so it is clean for the next layer. Pop the pan in the freezer and clean out the blender for the next layer. Repeat more bananas and strawberries and then again with bananas and blueberries. Smooth off the top layer and freeze the cake for several hours.
Take it out the freezer for about half an hour before you are ready to eat it and carefully pop open the springform pan. You can either leave it on the base or you can transfer it to a cake stand. Decorate the top with fresh fruit of your choice and then cut it in slices with a sharp chefs knife.
This is a lovely light and eye pleasing dessert that always wows guests. Who knew it would be so easy!
