The point of making your own desserts and smoothies is not to avoid sweets altogether... the point is to feed your body healthy sweets. YES, they do exist!
I discovered aloe vera yesterday.. and it was delicious! In the mood for a smoothie drink I threw my aloe vera (juice and chunks) into the blender. Since I had a few fresh cherries lying around I also threw those in, along with a few spoons of raw sugar. I pulsed a few times and had the most amazing, refreshing drink! Not only is it pretty but it's light and tasty.
We were looking for a sweet, rich and chocolate-y dessert last night so I decided to make a milk shake!
About 1 cup unsweetened soy milk
4 frozen strawberries
4 chopped dates (any variety)
1-2 T raw cocoa
1-2 ice cubes
All you have to do is blend (adding more ice or frozen fruit for a more slushy drink)!
