This ice cream recipe is very versitile and yummy! It's Dairy Free, Vegan, Paleo / Primal friend AND is no sugar added.
Serves: 1 serving
⅓ cup coconut cream or ½ cup coconut milk
⅔ cup water (or ½ cup water if using coconut milk)
100g banana, frozen
40g blueberries, frozen
20g raspberries, frozen
90g strawberries, frozen
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
A high speed blender like a Vitamix OR a decent food processor
Add your coconut cream (or milk) to your blender, add enough water to equal 1 cup of liquid. Add in the rest of your ingredients.
Blend on medium speed using plunger if needed (or scrap the sides down if your blender doesn't use a plunger). If using a food processor, pulse several times, scraping down the sides as needed. Blend until creamy and smooth.
Serve immediately or you can stick this in the freeze for 30 minutes to firm up more if desired.
So this week’s grocery haul video is a combination of two places. Hyvee, a local store from the Midwest, as well as Whole Foods market. I spent like $110 dollars, not totally sure and I can’t list the stuff I bought because in the confusion of construction I lost the receipts! Oops, sorry!
(click on the image to enlarge, this is my actual receipt with personal stuff blocked out)
Today I went grocery shopping at walmart and got just a few items. As you know I’ve been doing a low fat high carb raw vegan challenge. This grocery haul reflects that. This will be my food for the week.
51 pounds of bananas (29 cents a pound)
14 pounds of peaches (99 cents a pound)
15 pounds of tomatoes (69 cents a pound)
a 15 pound watermelon (1.98)
In total, only cost me $32.96! Pretty cheap for one week huh. Yes I have leftover avocados from last week’s haul and I do have 3 large heads of lettuce in the fridge, however I’ll probably just eat what you see in the video.
So we’ve given you a basic chocolate sauce recipe, but you need more ideas? How about a kid friendly activity that tastes yummy? Chocolate covered bananas. You can stick these in the freezer for an on the go, frozen treat, a great alternative to dairy ice cream!
Peel 1 banana, cut into little pieces or snap in half and cover with 1 tablespoon chocolate sauce, or for big batches, dip bananas into bowl of chocolate. Put in freezer for 15 minutes to firm chocolate or put on sticks and freeze for an ice cream like treat. This is a fun activity to do with children that is very delicious! Definitely try it some time!
Prep time: 1-15 minutes Serves: 1
allergies: cocoa (cacao), coconut oil, honey***, banana
Raw friendly, and ***vegan friendly if you make chocolate sauce without honey
NOTE: This is an old recipe and I’m leaving it here for anyone that wants it. I however do not endorse the eating of milk, meat, or eggs.
These bran muffins are super moist, delicious, and easy to make. Did I mention this is a healthy breakfast idea? Serve a muffin for breakfast with a glass of juice and a piece of fruit.
1 1/2 cup bran
1 cup approx. flour
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon REAL vanilla extract
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup regular sugar
1/4 cup oil
2 whole eggs
Optional Mix Ins:
1/2 cup of nuts, or dried fruits like cherries, strawberries, blueberries, or the traditional raisins
1/2 tablespoon coconut chips
1 tsp raw sugar
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
In a bowl, mix your bran, milk, salt, eggs, sugar, baking powder, oil, and vanilla. Mix well, there should be no lumps. After you mix well, add in 1/2 cup flour and mix until incorporated. Add the rest of the flour little at a time until the mixture if very thick and gloopy. Â This is a basic bran muffin recipe, if you want you can stop right here or you can add in fruit or nuts. Add in 1/2 cup of your choice of mix-ins. Mix until combined.
Spray muffin pans with cooking spray or line with muffin paper. Divide the batter evenly between twelve muffin tins. For that little extra something add coconut chips and/or raw sugar.
Bake at 375 degrees for 18-25 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
