Banana and avocado sweet snack

This is a super fast and easy recipe to whip up. I ate it plain for breakfast and snacks. I also made delicious sandwiches with it for lunch. I loved this so much! Raw Rob said you can also use it for a cake filling but I have not tried to yet. This may not be the prettiest of foods, but it sure was really yummy!

I told you it is not the prettiest, but it sure is tasty!!

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

Holiday Chia Pudding

I am always experimenting on myself by changing up my eating. Starting this week I have incorporated breakfast instead of just my juice. I am still drinking my juice, but having a solid breakfast first. I have already started to notice changes so I think this was a great decision for me. For this first week I decided to make Kristen’s Chia Pudding- I have wanted to make this for a while. As you know I love all things chia so I thought this would be the perfect go-to breakfast of choice. The best part is you can make a big bunch and it stays fresh in the fridge for 5 days or so. I doubled the recipe so that it would last me the whole week and it did 🙂 I over did it on the spices, so just have a lighter hand than me when you get to that part. Other than that this was deelish and a welcome change to my morning routine.

Holiday Chia Pudding
By Kristen Suzanne
Yield 1 1/4 cups

1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup dried coconut, shredded & unsweetened
1 cup water
1/4 cup raw cashews (soaked 1 hour, drained and rinsed)
4 soft medjool dates, pitted
2 cloves
1 teaspoon lucuma powder
1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

Place the chia seeds and coconut in a small bowl, briefly stir to mix, and set aside. Blend the remaining ingredients until smooth. Pour the blended cashew mixture into the bowl with the chia seeds and coconut and stir. Wait a few minutes and stir again. Wait a few minutes, again, and stir. Do the “wait and stir” once more, and then place the Holiday Chia Pudding in the refrigerator for about 15 – 20 minutes (or longer, if desired). I normally leave them in overnight. Then, enjoy.

Superfood Smoothie

We normally make smoothies in lieu of our usual Green Juices once or twice a week. They are so yummy and such a great treat! We make so many different variations but here is our most recent one. I never measure the ingredients when I put them in the Vita-mix, so below are approximates.
