Superfood Ice Cream

Imagine a creamy dreamy soft serve ice cream that's totally devoid of anything bad, and chock-full of everything good. You're welcome.

Bananas are a premium source of potassium, and cacao nibs are one of nature's best (and most delicious!) antioxidant-rich whole foods. Oh! And for those of you who aren't familiar with maca, it's a butterscotchy-tasting root that can be purchased in most health food stores in a raw, powdered form. I love it not only for the flavor, but also because it's incredibly health-boosting, energizing, strengthening, and vitalizing. I have several maca recipes in my third book, but am constantly experimenting with it to find even more yummy ways to use it! Mmmmmmaca. Enjoy!

-       2 cups frozen banana chunks (frozen for at least 12 hours, using very ripe bananas)
-       ¼ cup (or less) almond milk - just enough so that your mixture will blend
-       2 teaspoons vanilla extract
-       Optional: 1 tablespoon maca powder
-       dash ground nutmeg
-       Add last: 2 teaspoons raw cacao nibs

-  In a food processor with an S-blade, place all of the ingredients, except for the nutmeg and cacao nibs.

 Blend until smooth and creamiliscious (it's a word), using just enough of the almond milk so that your mixture blends up well.

- Serve immediately, dusted with nutmeg and topped with the cacao nibs.

Serves 2

GF/SF/Raw/Green (according to the health guidelines in my books)


  1. Have you tried a non-fat free version of this at all? I'm thinking it would be even more super yum with coconut milk, but I don't know how much to add so it didn't get too liquidy. Thoughts?

  2. I haven't tried that, but YES that would be delish! Howzabout you try it & let us know! ;-)
