@thatcleanlife_ celebrated #NationalIceCreamDay with different variations of, "DIY banana ice cream, which can come together in a matter of minutes if you have the right ingredients on hand."

@mindbodyiq shared a recipe for her Chococado Banoffee Pudding:

  • 1 banana
  • 1 large avocado
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 3 heaped tbs raw cacao powder
  • 2 tbs cacao butter melted
  • 1 heaped tbs tahini
  • 1 heaped tbs mesquite powder
  • 6 small dates softened in a little hot water
  • Pinch of good mineral salt

Blend until smooth and creamy then chill in fridge. Top with chopped pistachios, bee pollen & cacao nibs. You can also freeze portions to be taken in school lunches or to the office for a lovely nutritious chococado treat. It will thaw in a couple hours easy!

@pretendhealthfreak wowed with raw vegan tiramisu cups.

@greensmoothiegourmet started the week off with an "Iced Chocolate Cinnamon Latte. Icy and yummy but extremely healthy with raw cacao, dates, nut milk and cinnamon which together provide a panel of antioxidants, fiber, protein, and magnesium."

@vegukate paired chocolate with the perfect fruit flourish in this, "dairy free chocolate dream ice cream with raspberry chia jam."
