The Raw Ice Cream that Changed my Life

Pretty epic title, huh? Well, it’s totally true.

The other day, while watching a boring movie (can’t even remember the title, it was THAT bad), I was Googling vegan raw recipes on my iPhone. I was in the mood for something sweet, yet healthy, and I eventually settled on some raw vegan brownies. They turned out OK, but that’s not what this post is about. This is about the raw vegan ice cream that I chose not to make at the time, but that I bookmarked for later instead. Well, that “later” was about 12 minutes ago, when I popped the pieces of 2 frozen bananas and a sprinke of shredded coconut into my mini food processor to make raw vegan “ice cream”. The outcome? Well let’s just say that I was so amazed by this that I didn’t even take the time to grab my “real” camera. I used my iPhone and snapped this quick one instead. But before that, I ate it. All. Out of the food processor. With the blade still in it. Yep.

Gena was totally right when she called her post about this recipe: This Post Will Change Your Life. And despite her amazing write-up, I still didn’t believe that the outcome would be so creamy… and fluffy. But it is. Really. I won’t gush any more about this because at the end of the day, you’ll either make it, or you won’t. But I’m telling you that if you do, it will really change your life.
