You may be noticing that many raw recipes center around similar ingredients. The chocolate desserts use unsweetened, raw cocoa. Many of the "ice creams" use some sort of frozen fruit, especially bananas.
This ice cream isn't completely raw - but it's good for you and it's unbelievably rich and sweet! Dates are a great sweetener - and provide potassium, iron and so much more.
1-1.5 c unsweetened soymilk
handful of dates
handful of raw cashews
about 2 cups frozen, ripe bananas
about 1 cup other frozen fruit (I used a tropical mix)
This is so easy! All you have to is throw these ingredients in the blender.
Now BLEND! Add a little water if necessary.
I know this may look a little like baby food.. or melted ice cream.. but trust me, it's yummy!
One you've transferred it to a bowl, put it into the freezer for 20 minutes - or up to an hour if you like it colder and more frozen.
NOTE: If you make this before dinner, it'll be ready for you when you're done eating!
Add a little chocolate syrup (mixture of 1/4 cup maple syrup or agave nectar with 1-2 T cocoa powder) to make it a super sweet chocolate-y ice cream!
Try it once.. I promise you'll LOVE it!
