Banana Blast!

Here’s our raw version of a summer treat we’ve all had once or twice before.

There are no words to describe how delicious this one is…my six year old and I just devoured it!

For the ‘ice cream’…

2 bananas
1/4c (maybe a titch more) of homemade almond milk
a pinch of vanilla powder

Slice your bananas and place them in the freezer for at least four hours. Once they are frozen, place them into your processor. Start processing and add in your milk and vanilla. Process until smooth and creamy.

Now of course this ‘ice cream’ is absolutely fabulous all on its own, but his time we decided to fancy it up and added in some raw, dark, chocolate and our favorite peanut butter cups… all chopped up into bite size pieces of course.

You can find our recipe for peanut butter cups here…

Options are endless!

Stir it all together and enjoy!!!
