Raspberry and mango ice cream loaf

There's nothing more delicious and refreshing than this.

Preparation time : 25 min Cooking time : 5 min Servings : 6
  • 75 g cashew nuts
  • 3 Tbs honey
  • 250 g frozen mango blocks
  • 75 g frozen raspberries
  • 500 g vanilla ice cream, softened
  • Fresh or frozen raspberries to garnish

Preheat oven to 180ºC.

Place nuts on a baking tray and toast for 4–5 minutes. Remove and toss with the honey, then return to the oven for 4–6 minutes, tossing frequently. Turn out onto a lined baking sheet and allow to set. Once firm, chop into chunks.

Place the frozen mango chunks in a blender and blitz until smooth. Place the ice cream in a bowl, add raspberries and gently mix into ice cream mixture.

To assemble:

Scatter half the cashew nuts in the base of a loaf tin. Top with the mango purée (use the back of a spoon to smooth the layer), then sprinkle over remaining cashew nuts. Add the ice cream and raspberries and pack down firmly. Cover the loaf tin with clingwrap and freeze for 4 hours or overnight.

To serve:

Dip loaf tin into cold water and unmould onto a serving platter. Garnish with raspberries.
