What is your best food memory from childhood? Mine is ice cream. I remember summertime and going to the river with my family. On our way home we would swing by the store to get a nice cold sweet ice cream. Oh yeah, this is one of my best memories.
As an adult I still have cravings for ice cream. However now I am fully aware of this product being 100% bad for my body. One pint of this "treat" consists 40 grams of saturated fat, 14 grams of sugar and don't even get me started on all the horrors of dairy... So, in other words, absolutely nothing good can come from eating the traditional type ice cream.
Don't be sad! I have a solution - Banana Ice Cream
For every single unhealthy traditional dish we have a great, yummy, nutritious vegan alternative. It doesn't only satisfy your cravings but also exceeds your expectations of a delicious ice cream!
Raw vegan ice cream is a great breakfast, snack or treat. Bananas charge you with energy and superfood powders provide you with a great amount of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. It is perfect for people transitioning off the sugar and dairy laced standard ice-cream. You can eat it whenever you like, as much as you like. Guilt free 🙂
Here is what we need for 3 servings:
3 frozen bananas
1 tbsp maca powder
1 tbsp moringa powder
1/3 cup of water
1 tbsp coconut oil
Put frozen bananas in the blender. Add water, maca and moringa powders. Blend thoroughly. The substance needs to have the same consistency as a standard ice cream. For better smoothness add 1 tbsp of liquid coconut oil. Make sure to add the oil as a last step to avoid it being frozen over bananas.
Pour it in a bowl and decorate with fruit, coconut flakes, granola and chia seeds.
Enjoy! Buen provecho!
