    Coconut Berry Blast Banana Ice Cream Cake

    10 strawberries for outside, cut in half
    Vanilla ice cream cake layer
    2 cups cashews
    2 bananas
    1 cup dates
    1/4 cup melted coconut oil
    Seeds from 1/2 vanilla pod (or 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract)
    Coconut milk or coconut water, as needed
    1 cup frozen blueberries
    1 cup frozen strawberries
    1 cup of nut milk or coconut water, use as needed  1 cup dates, walnuts or another banana

    To make the first layer: place the halved strawberries around the edge of a spring form pan. Set
    aside. Now blend all the vanilla ice cream cake ingredients together until smooth, adding as little
    vegan milk or coconut water as possible (I used about 1/4 cup). Spread into the bottom of the
    pan, this should press the berries to the inner edge. Put in the freezer.

    To make the berry layer: blend it all up until smooth. Carefully spread over top of the vanilla ice cream cake layer and put in the freezer for about 2 or 3 hours, until it’s set. Then cut and serve with other berries! Let it
    soften a little before eating, because it makes it creamier.
