When my Mom and I were at our local health food store, we saw these kale chips that were called "Quite Cheezee Kale Chips", and they were SO EXPENSIVE, but the best kale chips ever! So I took off the ingredients, and sort of made up my own version of the one at the store, and it tastes very close to the one we bought, but a lot cheaper.

I was kinda upset that all of the yummy looking raw ice cream recipes I found, used an Ice cream maker, and I don't have one (yet ;-D) So I thought of how to make and ice cream, without an ice cream maker, that tastes REALLY good, and I came up with this! It's easy, simple, and so yummy!
I was raised on sweets. My grandparents had a colossal candy cabinet and bowls of colorful sugary goodness all over the house. It's almost part of my DNA, the sweets. So even though I have shifted into a greater awareness of what I put into my body, there is no need to ignore my pal, Mr. Sweet Tooth. I have played around with many recipes and have finally Frankensteined the tastiest Banana Pudding Parfait (cue the lightning bolt). This recipe incorporates all natural, enzyme-rich ingredients that your body wants, including natural sugars, so take any guilt and kick it out the door.
There are three main components to this recipe:
Crumble Topping, Vanilla Whipped Cream and Banana Pudding. The Vanilla Whipped Cream is optional, but super delicious if you are up for opening a young coconut, which is easier than it sounds.
With it being the dead of winter and all, I’ve been doing my best to stay warm during the cloudy rainy days. This can be especially difficult if your diet consists of mostly raw foods, so its good to supplement with foods and spices that having a warming tendency for the body. The three C’s of warming spices are cinnamon (dalchini), cardamom (elichee), and clove (laung). In my opinion, the best way to combine these heat makers is to make a nice cup of warm chai. The smells and tastes of these aromatic spices are just the thing for that cold day gloom, and are also great for your health. To go along with the chai, I’ve included a recipe for a delicious snack to enjoy, which I’m going to call chai cookie cakes. Enjoy it!
