Happy Friday to you!
I hope that you have had a great week and you are looking forward to letting your hair down and relaxing this weekend.
With that in mind I thought I would share a simple recipe with you. I get asked a lot about the food I eat and people often comment on the healthy nature of my diet and that I never seem to eat bad food.
Well there is method in my madness, I do eat some foods that taste just as awesome as the junk foods of yesteryear and they are very calorific. I just try and make the healthiest choices in terms of chemicals, dairy and gluten. I love Ice-Cream and would love to pig out on it all the time, but I seriously do not trust the ingredients in most processed food these days. Here's a little article for you to read:
Now not all Ice Creams are going to be like that but the majority of them contain things that you cannot pronounce, these days that screams DANGER to me. I have had quite a 180 degree shift in my lifestyle and truth be told it has been the most eye opening experience for me. I hated broccoli, never like cauliflower much unless there was a lot of cheese on it and I could drink pints of milk with no problem. I also suffered from migraines, and a long list of other issues that made me very lethargic. Giving my body the chance to sample fresh foods was something that my mind didn't like for the first week or so, I struggled with the 'come down' from the sugar highs and even months down the line my body was getting rid of toxins like you wouldn't believe.
All in all I believe it took about 6 months for my body to really adapt to my new lifestyle and heal itself on the inside. And I believe it will take many, many more years to combat the side affects of my old smoking too; but I'm okay with that, the main thing I want to do is give my body the most optimal environment to repair.
I think I have rambled long enough now... On to the nice easy Ice Cream alternative.
Ingredients are listed below the video.
Handful of your chosen berries
400-500ml of coconut milk
Handful of cashew nuts
BLENDER/ FOOD PROCESSOR
Chop the bananas up and freeze them, when they are ready throw them into a bender with a the berries, coconut milk and cashews. Then blend! Woop Woop! If you have Cacao Powder you can always add some in to add flavour. Depending on the power of your machine you might have to stir the mixture!
So simple and natural and it tastes creamy and great!
Have fun with any variation that you like.
Have a great weekend! Stay Strong and Keep Moving!
