Raw Fudge Brownies with frosting

The fudge brownies are delicious! The frosting on top really added to how yummy they were. It gave the brownies 2 different textures, awesome! I love how amazing raw desserts can be. Make a batch of these and keep them in the fridge. All you need is little slices, just a taste is enough. These will stay great for over a week.

Banana Ice Cream Love

mmmmm!! We  have been eating Banana Ice Cream for so long and I have never posted it! I am sorry not to have shared this beloved ‘secret’ recipe with everyone before!! It couldn’t be simpler (to make and ingredients) and is so delicious! For us it is super easy because we always keep a bunch of frozen bananas in the freezer to make smoothies and ice cream, so there is no planning for this fabulous dessert, ever! Since this recipe is really just bananas, you can enjoy it anytime; even for breakfast!! How great is that, Ice Cream for Breakfast! There are so many twists and additions you can make with this recipe, so have fun with it! Let me know anything else you try and love!

Banana Ice Cream

1-2 frozen bananas per person serving
any toppings or additions you want to add

So Simple! Just take the bananas and blend away in your Vita-mix, Blend-tec, blender or food processor until smooth. ENJOY 🙂

Suggested Topping or Add-Ins

  • The pictures in this post, we used our beloved Agave Pecan Butter, basically making an amazing frozen version of  Chocolate-Covered Katie’s Banana Butter
  • Sometimes we add in Cocoa Nibs and we get amazing Chocolate Chip Ice cream
  • ChocAgave –yummy raw chocolate sauce, or just use regular chocolate syrup
  • Goji berries for a great chewy taste
  • add other berries in the mixture to change up the taste, or as a topping
  • add cocoa powder to make chocolate ice cream
  • maca, mesquite, lucuma , protein powders
  • have fun, this is such a great treat to play with

RAW Orange Goji Berry White Chocolate

I have been waiting to make this dessert for such a long time and I am soooo happy I finally did! This is going to be repeated (which I almost never do because there are so many other dishes I want to try!) It was super simple to make, froze quickly and eaten very happily afterwards 🙂 If you want this for dessert I would suggest setting it in the freezer just before preparing dinner and then dessert will be ready to serve immediately after. The chocolate becomes this gorgeous bright red-orange color that is sweet but chewy with crunchy bites. It is amazing!

Then by hand mix in whole:

1/2 cup whole goji berries
The zest from 1 orange finely zested
