Nice Cream. Thank me later..

Hi Fruity Family!

I’m alive and well.  Raw Food 365 is in full swing, and I’m happy to say I am thriving in month 5!  The things I eat day to day vary quite a lot, but nice cream seems to always be on the menu at least every couple of days.  I change up the recipe depending on who I’m making it for.  This recipe and method is for the family, but easy to clean up and raw-ify for myself. Here is how I turn bananas into pure love..

What you’ll need..

2 bunches ripe spotty bananas

almond milk

natural peanut butter (optional)

cocoa powder/carob powder (optional)

pure maple syrup (optional)

Vitamix/any high speed blender/food processor

What you’ll do..

The day before: Peel bananas and break each into 2-3 pieces. Freeze them in a sealable reusable container.  Also, pour your choice of almond milk into an ice cube tray. Freeze overnight.

The day of:  Place 4-5 frozen bananas and 2-3 almond milk cubes into the blender.  Add a splash of almond milk to help get the blender started.  Use the tamper tool to press down the bananas, it’s an aggressive arm work-out don’t be afraid to show that blender who’s boss.  This will be your base.. from here you can add any flavour combination you like! Frozen fruit for a sorbet feel, cocoa powder, peanut butter, vanilla extract, etc.  You can be as creative as you like!  Our favourite is maple syrup and natural peanut butter, or throw in a few spoon fulls of cocoa powder and you can satisfy any chocolate craving.  Top with organic cacao nibs or a home made sauce.  Check out my Instagram for sauce recipes!

Enjoy in abundance.

The best things in life are certainly, cruelty-free.
