Banana Raspberry "Nice" Cream

Banana Raspberry "Nice" Cream

For an awesome alternative to dairy ice cream you need to create your own blend of fruit cream. You must have some organic frozen fruit always ready, and bananas are the base for all the creaminess. Always keep some peeled thick sliced bananas in the freezer so that you can whip up that special treat whenever needed.  Here's a basic recipe which makes about a pint of "nice" cream:

3-4 frozen bananas
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
1/2 cup non-dairy milk
1 tbl. maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 scoop plant protein powder(makes it extra creamy)
Place all in the Vitamix and slowly pulse until desired texture.
For a sweet/salty topping:
Blend together
1/4 cup chopped roasted almonds
1 tbl. maple syrup
Pinch of coarse sea salt

Serve in a small bowl
This is so good, that you only need a small serving to satisfy your sweet tooth! 

*If you don't own a Vitamix, you should consider purchasing one. Yes they are expensive, but they are the most versatile piece of  kitchen appliances. We use are everyday.  You can use it to blend, chop, make dishes from homemade nut butters, cashew creams and ice cream to hot soup, the list goes on.

Here's a link to a great video on "Body Hacking".  Can we really take shortcuts to a healthier, stronger body?

Have a great week.
Be kind.
