Fried Ice Cream ~ Raw Food Recipe


serves 2 ~ $.48 per serving
 
 
 
 
3 bananas ($.45)
flavoring (other frozen fruit or cacao) ($.40)
pinch salt
3 tablespoons ground flax ($.05)
1 tablespoon coconut flakes ($.05)
big pinch cinnamon
pinch cayenne (optional)
drizzle of agave, maple syrup, or coconut nectar 

Bananas and flax seed, that's all this is. But when it's called fried ice cream, it sounds truly decadent.
Make a batch of banana ice cream in your preferred way. For this, I took the bananas, cacao, and salt and pureed in the food processor until very smooth, then froze until firm. You can use frozen bananas and and the food processor, or use an ice cream maker. Whichever method you use, freeze the ice cream until it's firm. Mix together the flax, coconut, cinnamon, and cayenne. Then, scoop the ice cream into a ball and roll each ball in the flax blend. Drizzle with a bit of your choice of sweetener.

    1. That's right, Shannon. I'm trying to organize and slightly update all my recipes here so I'm reposting them individually. I'm sure there's an easier way, lol, but that's how I'm doing it.

      All is well here. It's been a busy summer and we're heading into a busy fall. Hope you and yours are doing well! How is that cute little girl of yours?

  3. I think the directions could be better written. The picture easily shows some whole flax seed...but the directions say ground flax seed. Servings say, serves 2. How many pieces is that?
