  • Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Split into two batches of around 800ml (700g) each.
  • Chill mix in freezer for 20-40 minutes (or at least one hour in the fridge).
  • Line the bottom of a springform tin with sandwich wrap and store the tin in the freezer until ice cream is ready.
  • Churn the first batch in an ice-cream maker until smooth and creamy (about 20 minutes).
  • Split ice-cream into three different bowls and add a few drops of food colouring (a different colour in each bowl).
  • Stir quickly and thoroughly until the colour is mixed through.
  • Blob spoonfuls of each colour into the springform tin, alternating colours so they are evenly distributed around the tin.
  • Put tin and ice cream into the freezer and freeze overnight.
  • Repeat with the second batch of ice-cream, using three different colours.
  • Smooth the top of the finished ice cream cake with a spatula.
  • Store cake in the tin in the freezer overnight.
  • To remove cake from the springform tin, run a flat knife around the edge of the tin to release the cake from the side, and undo the springform clip.
  • Invert the cake over a plate, and gently pull on the sandwich wrap to release the cake from the tin.
  • Slice and serve immediately.
  • Store any leftover cake in the freezer for up to 3 months.
