Orange Freezer Cake

Orange Freezer Cake

Orange freezer cake oooooh I just love these – so creamy and smooth and sooooooooo easy to make – you simply soak the cashew nuts for at least 4 hours and then blend all the ingredients together until completely smooth (about 2mins!!!!)

I remember the first time I tried experimenting with this recipe. I had just completed a crazy 1 year course in which I had little time to either a) sleep or b) prepare food. I can honestly name this year as the one in which I consumed the most junk food. I came home feeling terrible. I was exhausted all the time and had stomach ache every time I ate. It was the first moment I decided I needed to change things in order to live a more fun and fulfilling life.

It was not easy and I tried lots of ways. These orange freezer cakes came out of my raw food phase. (Just for the record, whilst a completely raw diet didn’t work for me, probably because of where I was coming from, I do think eating a large portion of your daily fruit and veg raw is very important. I would say I work to about 50/50. I find green smoothies are a great way of getting lots of raw goodness in one hit!)

At the time I used my dehydrator for the base but have since found that baking in the oven is just as good. (If you fancy having a go in the dehydrator pop them in on the fruit setting - about 135˚C for 1 hr.)

These orange freezer cakes really are simple to make – the base and topping are the same mix prepared differently (the base is cooked - the top frozen.)

The first one I made was a giant cake size – about 9 inches – and I‘m pretty sure I ate the majority of it myself! I knew that whatever eating plan I chose these were going to be a part of it!!! :)
