What's Raw, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegan, and DARN GOOD??

Raw Chocolate Ice Cream

First thing is first, put on your apron! If you love my dinosaur apron, check out Bashley's Uncommon Threads, she rocked it out on her sewing machine for me!



Ingredients:

3 organic peeled bananas

3 Tblsp. pure cocoa powder (organic and fair trade is best!)

2 Tblsp. organic raw almond butter (other raw butters are fine too, its all about your taste!)

2 Tblsp. agave nectar or some people use Stevia (I dont know anything about stevia so I dont put it in my body)

6 organic dates, pitted

3-4 cups ice cubes (about 14)


Place the bananas, cocoa powder, nut butter, agave, dates and 1/4 of the ice in a blender (high powered is better). Blend Blend, slowly keep adding more and more ice cubes, it should thicken up nicely. You dont need to use all of the ice, use it until its a consistency that you like. You can also ad up to a cup of water to help the blending process if you have your grandmas old blender like we do! Pour into a cute little Vegan Dish and you are all set!

********WARNING YOU MAY MAKE RIDICULOUS FACES, LIKE ME, WHEN TASTING YOUR ICE CREAM!********
