When I was a little girl, I use to eat ice cream every day — until one day, my second grade teacher made a random comment during class. She was talking about how much she loved ice cream, but she said if she ate it every day, she'd be as big as a cow. I thought, "I don't want to be as big as a cow," and I focused on reducing my ice cream consumption. 

As an adult, I still love ice cream. It's my favorite dessert. However, my newest obsession is finding healthier alternatives to the usual sugar-filled desserts. 

This raw version was delicious and easy to make!
