Ice Cream for Breakfast

See this? This was my breakfast.

It's the raw vegan version of ice cream. And if you've never tried it before, you won't believe how good--and easy--it is.

Strawberry Banana Raw Vegan Ice Cream
1 1/2 frozen banana, cut into chunks before freezing
4 fresh strawberries
a little almond milk if necessary for processing

Remove banana from freezer and allow to slightly thaw for ten minutes. Add banana chunks and strawberries to food processor. Process until everything is the consistency of soft serve ice cream, adding a little almond milk if the bananas are still too frozen. (I was impatient, so I needed the almond milk.)

This makes one unbelievably delicious serving. I topped mine with dried coconut and another strawberry, but you could use cacao nibs, other fruit, nuts, or eat it as is. You even serve it in little walnut date crust, or over a raw vegan brownie. But whatever you do, do it fast. By the time I'd finished taking this photo, it was starting to melt.

Update: I made it again with half bananas and half blueberries. Even better!

Today's chow:
raw vegan strawberry banana ice cream
sprouted quinoa and blueberries with almond milk
blender soup with red peppers, cuke, jalapeno, garlic, one date, cashews, salt
flax crackers and guacamole
green salad with tahini dressing
banana chard smoothie (thought I was going to go a day without a smoothie, but no.)
