For all of you sweet toothers out there, I found this recipe by Jamie Schneider which uses some really great ingredients to produce a fantastic, non-dairy, natural ‘ice-cream’
‘What you’ll need:
4 frozen bananas (peel your bananas before you freeze them!)
3/4 cup almonds
3/4 cup cashews
1/4 cup cacao powder
10 dates, soaked in water for 5 – 15 minutes to soften before blending)
1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
What to do:
1.) Add frozen bananas to your Vitamix or food blender and then place back in the freezer to let harden.
2.) Combine almonds, cashews and cacao powder in a blender or food processor and blend until a fine crumble forms.
3.) Add maple syrup, vanilla, dates and salt into blender with mixture and blend until all ingredients form a soft dough.
4.) Roll dough onto a pan lined with parchment paper. You can use your hands or a rolling pin. If you use your hands, keep them damp to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands.
5.) Place rolled out dough into the freezer for 20 minutes.
6.) Once hardened, remove dough and cut into 2 inch squares (you will get about 20 squares depending on how big you want them).
7.) Place a spoonful of frozen banana onto half of the squares and then top with another square so you have yourself a sandwich!
8.) Store them in the freezer.’
