Banana Ice Cream w/ Chocolate Rawnola

Banana Ice Cream w/ Chocolate Rawnola | Well and Full | #raw #vegan #recipe

Today’s recipe is nice and simple – just some plain banana ice cream, and some yummy chocolate rawnola. Sometimes the simplest things are the best, especially when life is complicated. Right now I’m trying to figure out what I want to do once my leave time is over. I’m definitely going to go back and get a certification in holistic nutrition, but the “when” of it is what’s up in the air. Right now I’m juggling what I should do for work, what I should do for my education, and where I should live. It’s been getting a little stressful, so having my cooking and my blog to turn to is such a relief. The goals here are really simple – make yummy food, write about it, post it.

As I’ve been playing around with raw foods lately, I’ve been having a fantastic time trying to raw-ify my favorite snacks – like kale chips, granola, fruit leather, etc. I don’t have a dehydrator, but I’ve found that my oven works just as well on its lowest temperature. Today’s raw granola, or rawnola as I like to call it, was super simple to make, with only six ingredients. I taste tested it on my non-vegan boyfriendΒ and friend, and they both loved it, especially with the banana ice cream. It’s so cool how bananas take on such a creamy and luscious texture when frozen! With the crunchy rawnola, it’s a match made in heaven!

    Simply stunning photography! I love the idea of ice cream in winter time too. Usually it’s just hot drinks or warm desserts but I am an ice cream fan, and I love how this is on the much healthier side! Good luck trying to figure out what you’re next career steps are. I’m sure you will know where you are supposed to be soon!
