RECIPE: banana nice cream with berries

Sometimes I can't help it, I crave a good brain freeze. And right now, all I want is to mix every delicious fruit Mother Nature has given me into a beautiful, beautiful bowl of goodness.

RAW Banana Cream and Berries

  • 1-2 large bananas, frozen
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, if desired
  • a dash of cinnamon
  • 1 cup of berries, to add

  • Whirl everything (except the berries) in a food processor until a creamy frozen treat forms. 
  • Stick in the freezer for 20 minutes if needed.
  • Toss with your favorite berries and eat!

And that's it! If you have a Vitamix, use it. Otherwise, a good old-fashioned food processor works beautifully. Break up the frozen bananas a bit so they process evenly. Process until smooth and creamy, just like a soft serve. Some add nut mylk and others add cacao (and even nut butters!). Play with it, make it your own, and listen to your own carnal cravings.

I like to add strawberries and blueberries to mine, like pictured above.

How easy was that?!
