I know there are plenty of banana 'ice cream' style recipes out there already but this is a new concoction I threw together tonight and thought it worked really well.
Didn't take a picture I'm afraid as couldn't wait to eat it! Will try and take one next time hopefully. :-)
Raw Saffron Pistachio Ice Cream
This is a very exotic flavor combination, very difficult to stop eating...
I had some left over cashew frosting from some carrot cake I had made, and figured out that if I added mangoes to it, it made the most fabulous ice cream. The blueberry sauce is from Raw Food Real World. For the photograph, I forgot that blueberries contain pectin, so unlike me, don't forget to stir/shake the sauce well before serving or it stays as a gel!
After purchasing our new ice cream maker over the 4th of July weekend, we couldn’t resist another weekend of experimentation. My husband loves fresh cherries so I brought home a 2 pound bag of big fresh organic cherries (from our co-op). This turned out amazing! I believe I had beginners luck creating my own recipe! My husband absolutely loved this rich decadent ice cream. Enjoy!
I don't remember where I got the base recipe from (frozen bananas, agave vanilla, sea salt) - maybe from here, or one of my raw food books - I have played around with several variations and this by far, the best one yet.
