A Little Bit About Us

Our goal is to make affordable, delicious, healthy food that nourishes our souls as well as our bodies. We love new flavors as well as old favorites. It's important, for us, not to place too many restrictions and be as free and simple as we can when it comes to our food. We have no fancy equipment or expensive gadgets (although when we're wrestling with our dinosaur blender/smoothie maker we have both thought how nice it'd be to have a functioning one.. lol). We love each other more than anything and making food together is rewarding on every level.

Simple & Healthy Raw Vegan Chocolate Banana Ice Cream


This is all about technique and texture.  It is very simple to create a healthy chocolatey ice cream dessert!  We like to use the highest quality organic ingredients possible, for our health and the planet’s :)  
First, freeze two freckled (very ripe) bananas over night in a freezer bag or container.  When you are ready to eat some yummy dessert, let the bananas thaw for 30 minutes.  We usually just keep the bananas in the freezer bag and place somewhere safe on the kitchen counter. 
Ingredients:
2 mushy post-frozen bananas
1/2 cup raw cacao or cocoa
Optional ingredients:  pinch of sea salt, cinnamon, coconut flakes, vanilla extract, almond butter, cacao nibs (if you want a chocolate chip crunch), nutmeg…you could try any of these!
Mash all ingredients together in a medium bowl until creamy!  Enjoy :)
