This dessert is a favourite of ours.
Plus it's simple to make, delicious and super nutritious.
The sweet, tart taste of raspberries creamed together with bananas, vanilla and smooth almond butter results in a rich, creamy treat.
At first I was calling it sorbet, but that’s not accurate as I never add water, juice or sugar – none of those ingredients are needed as raspberry soft serve is plenty sweet on its own from the double dose of ripe fruit.
They are an excellent source of vitamin C; fiber -- one of the highest sources in nature- 8g in one cup; manganese; flavonoids -- powerful antioxidants; minerals-calcium, magnesium & iron and ellagic acid -- cancer-fighting compound!!. They also contain folic acid and other B vitamins.
This was very appropriate for our Valentines Day treat. I was awakened to a new perspective this Valentines Day from Oh She Glows....
“Valentine’s Day reminds me that without Self-Love I have nothing
…. without Self-Love I can’t give to others in my life.”
Beautifully written and makes complete sense.
2 frozen bananas
1 cup frozen raspberries
2 Tbsp almond milk
1 Tbsp almond butter
¼ tsp vanilla bean (or ½ tsp pure vanilla extract)
Mint and dark chocolate to top (optional)
1. Throw all ingredients into high-speed blender ie. Vitamix, turn to speed 5 and use tamper to push fruit into blades until creamy. OR you can use a food processor. Throw in your bananas and whip until you get banana soft serve (scraping the sides as needed), then add in the rest of the ingredients until smooth and well combined. For both methods, serve immediately.
