One night Benji and I watched a documentary and like any great documentary, it made us feel like crap about ourselves. So we made an attempt to be more "raw" in our diet. Yes, I am aware of how terribly trendy that sounds. We bought a book of recipes (notice that I did not say "cookbook", duh, raw recipe book) and fell in love with the smoothies and fruit creams. One of my favorite is banana-chocolate chip frozen fruit cream. How boring is that name? I slightly changed the recipe, all of the ingredients they list are raw, but some raw stuff really breaks the bank, so this is the GRHL altered version I like to call...
Frozen Banana in the Sky with Cacao Nibs
You will need:
Fill a blender with 1 cup purified water
(raw nuts are softer,
so I would recommend sticking to raw with this one)
(I know, you're all what? They are a super food, read more here)
Sweeten it all up by adding 1 1/2 raw honey
(or maple syrup or agave nectar-these would make it vegan)
add a pinch of sea salt and
about 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
(or more if you're frisky like me)
You will soon be left with this:
Blend for 30-60 seconds & enjoy!
You've now got yourself a healthy, wonderful treat! This is a little chunky, so if you want something smoother, lessen the amount of cashews. Happy treating!
