Instructions
  1. For the Base - Add the base ingredients to a food processor (except cacao nibs) and process until it resembles fine crumbs and sticks together when pressed. Next add in the cacao nibs and pulse together until evenly combined. Press into the base of lined 6-inch cake tin and place in the freezer.
  2. For the Chocolate layer - Add all the ingredients (except lecithin) to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and silky. Then add in the ½ tablespoon lecithin and pulse to combine. Pour the cream over the base and place in the freezer.
  3. For the Orange layer - Start, of course, by soaking your cashews (soak for at least 6 hours or overnight). Add all the ingredients (except lecithin) to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Then add in the ½ tablespoon lecithin and pulse to combine. Pour the cream over the chocolate layer. Pop in freezer at least 4 hours to set (overnight is ideal). When you ready to serve, sprinkle some cacao nibs and dried orange zest. Enjoy!
