I LOVE the look of ice cream cakes with the different colours. However the artificial flavours in the commercial cakes I’m not all that keen on I have to say. I LOVE Fruity Dream (which is just frozen fruit whipped in the Thermomix) – so healthy too! I decided why not – I could try and make an ice cream cake using Layered Fruity Dream! It worked perfectly and I was just so excited! I have made it a number of times since, using different fruits. One of my biggest surprises was when I used green grapes the layer was completely white! Hence the term white grapes I guess! Another surprise too for me was when I made it with banana and it didn’t go brown! 🙂
I’d love you to let me know what kind of fruit layers you decide to do!
- 180g raw sugar
- 350g frozen strawberries
- 350g frozen oranges
- 350g frozen mixed berries
- 3 egg whites
Place sugar into TM bowl and mill 20 sec / speed 9. Set aside.
NB: you need 60g per layer (or less if you wish) - but it is easier to mill it all in one hit while you have a clean dry bowl.
- Place 60g of the sugar that you have just set aside into TM bowl.
- Add frozen strawberries (or fruit of your choice) and chop 10 sec / speed 8. Scrape down.
- Insert Butterfly. Add 1 egg white and mix 45 sec / speed 4 or until you have a soft consistency.
- Pour first layer into a cheesecake spring form tin.
- Flaten the mixture with the spatula.
- Place tin into freezer for 30 mins.
- Repeat the same for the next two layers (remember to place into freezer each time for approx. 30 minutes). This will just make it easier to pour the next layer on.
- Freeze for a few hours before required.
ANY frozen fuit can be used for this - you are only limited by your imagination!
I do know of people using a tin lined with Glad Wrap if you don't have a spring form tin
