RAW BANANA ICECREAM

The raw foods diet has finally made its way into my life!  I normally try to have a raw meal once a day to keep in line with having processed foods at a minimum.  Some benefits include increased energy, better digestion, weight loss, and improved skin/hair appearance.  Anyways!  There a lot of great benefits, but I could never implement a 100% raw lifestyle because 1.) it would require too many trips to the grocery store to keep produce fresh, 2.) i like meat!, and 3.) kind of high maintenance and involves a lot of planning!  Nevertheless, it is still a great idea to try to include part of this diet into your lifestyle.

Here is some good informational links for raw diet/lifestyles: www.rawguru.com and www.kristensraw.blogspot.com

Now onto the banana icecream! I love icecream, but unfortunately for me I am semi-lactose intolerant… so sometimes this item does not agree with my body.  Moreover, a lot of today’s icecream are highly processed with additives like high fructose corn sugar along with saturated fat.  This is probably one of the easiest recipes ever, all you need are some frozen bananas.  This idea was taken from this raw food blog: Choosing RawTake 2-3 peeled frozen bananas (you can cut them before freezing) and put them in a food processor or blender. The frozen bananas create a creamy icecream-like texture, almost like soft-serve.   I can imagine throwing in some mixes into the blender like some cocoa powder, carob chips, or fresh fruit.
