Recipe Review: Raw Ice-Cream

When Mr. AA saw bananas on the kitchen bench last week, he exclaimed “We can afford bananas? We’re living like kings!”. For all my international readers: bananas are around $14/kg in Australia at the moment.


Easy Banana Almond Ice-Cream

I want to start by saying that I’m not a raw foodist – not by a long shot. However that doesn’t mean that I can’t enjoy some raw food lovin’ every now and then.

For anyone who is unfamiliar with the raw food world, one of the most revolutionary things to come from it (in my opinion, at least), is banana soft serve. Someone once told me that Gena’s post would change my life – and it did. It meant that I was no longer stuck with soy ice-cream – which, as a general rule, I find a little revolting. Soy anything, really. I’ve just learned to tolerate it.

Sarahfaé from Addicted to Veggies really took banana soft serve up at least 23 notches when she created her easy banana almond ice-cream. Not only is this recipe easier than pie – it’s also super amazing and admittedly a recipe I’ve used at dinner parties more than once to knock the socks off unsuspecting omnivorous friends. The end result is sweet, creamy, nutty & a little zingy.

Give it a go, guys! You won’t regret it.

  1. That sounds SO good! I love the look of all those raw desserts, but the last time I tried to make one it was a spectacular failure. But I’ve got this ‘raw Bounty’ recipe saved and perhaps should have another try … or just send it to you, haha.

    • You can definitely send it to me! I love raw desserts but lose interest when they start getting too complicated. I kinda think… For someone who isn’t a raw foodist, is this really going to be worth it? 😉

  2. That looks delicious Nachos and Sarafae! I really should try it out some time and I know that my family will be fans. Nachos I used to think that all soy-based icecreams were disgusting myself but you have to try the one from Green Gourmet in Sydney. I am an avid hater of almost anything made from soy milk or silken tofu (only like fried or marinated tofu) and this tofu icecream was to die for. If you are ever in Sydney I urge you to try their restaurant *nod*

Chow down on this!
