Raw Ice Cream That Will Make You Feel Like You're Cheating on Ben & Jerry

I am going to show you how to make kick-ass ice cream, raw food style. It's so easy you're going to say, "That's it? This can't be right! It's too easy!" It's so easy in fact, it almost feels like you're cheating. But it's not cheating. It's just raw food, for lazy people like myself. It’s raw food that doesn’t suck. And FYI, we don’t cheat. We just enjoy making things easy for ourselves! When was the last time you had a craving for ice cream and decided to stand in the kitchen for two hours to make some and then waited eleven hours to eat it? No, that’s not how us lazy people do it. We pay a visit to your old friends Ben & Jerry instead. The thing is, Ben & Jerry always show you a real good time, but the day after you kind of feel like they force fed you a pint of heavy cream mixed with sugar and fish-shaped chocolate. And that’s not very nice. So that’s why you should try to always keep bananas in your freezer. Frozen bananas are good for many things – you can put them in your morning smoothie, for example. Or give them to children that come trick or treating (I did this one year. Can’t say we were the most popular house on the block, but it’s the thought that counts). Or - use them to make this 2-minute ice cream and eat it while watching an episode of The Office.

So enjoy this. You can thank me later.

You’ll need: Bananas, dates, vanilla/cinnamon/raw cacao

Peel 2-3 bananas, and chop into smaller pieces. Put in a container and freeze overnight – make sure you always have some for times like these!

So, during a commercial break, take out your bananas. Get some dates. Put three dates (or more) in your blender together with the banana.

Blend. This could take a little while, especially if your banana is super frozen. If it’s hard to get it going, let it rest for a few minutes, and then try again. You can also add a teeny tiny bit of water to get the blender started.

Blend until you have a smooth texture that will look exactly like regular ice cream (it will!). If you want to flavor your ice cream, you can add some fresh vanilla, cinnamon or raw cacao. I like it with vanilla.

That’s all, folks! I told you it was easy. And delicious, too.
