They are SO delish! In my opinion they are the BEST brownies I have ever made, and I have made a LOT of brownies in my day πŸ™‚

The next recipe I have been working on this week is a healthier version of ‘ice cream’ πŸ™‚
I love real ice cream, but I really can’t eat it every day like I would love to sometimes.
I have been seeing other foodie friends posting about using frozen bananas to make ‘ice cream’ and I finally remembered this week to actually freeze some bananas!
I played around with the bananas and some other ingredients, and I think I found a pretty good recipe.Β  Next week, I am going to try adding some other fruits and see what I can come up with πŸ™‚

Clean ‘Ice Cream’

Ingredients

~ 1 frozen banana (I peel several at a time and freeze them at least 12 hours before making)
~ 3 TBS Organic Raw Cacao Powder
~ ΒΌ cup unsweetened almond milk
~ 1 TBS Raw almond butter

1. Place the frozen banana in a food processor and blend for about 30 seconds. (A blender could work as well.)
2. Add the Cacao powder and blend for 10 seconds.
3. Add the milk and blend for 10 seconds.
4. Add the almond butter and blend till everything is mixed together.
5. If it is too think for you, add a little more milk. If it is too thin, add more banana or peanut butter.
6. Enjoy πŸ™‚

I also put my ice cream back in the freezer for about 15 min to make it a little more firm πŸ™‚

Just a few pics of some of the ingredients I experimented with πŸ™‚

    Could you use a chocolate hazelnut on the clean ice cream? I am sure it would make it dirty but I have not had good success in finding a good almond butter.
