I've been looking for (and been wanting to make) a raw vegan ice cream recipe without coconut meat for awhile. I found this one on goneraw.com and changed it up a bit to suit my taste and what I had on hand. Here's my revision:

Cacao-Mesquite-Banana Ice Cream
*1c cashews soaked for 5 hours
*little less then 1/3c vanilla agave
*few drops vanilla stevia
*3c almond milk (I made a quick nut milk with almond butter, water and vanilla agave)
*2 1/2T cacao
*1 1/2T mesquite
*1t lemon juice
*Pinch pink salt
*2 ripe bananas
*1t lethicin

I blended all the ingredients in my BlendTec and came up with about 30 ounces to pour into containers for the freezer. I had to try it first of course, and it was heavenly! Yum! If I would have blended it just a bit longer I think it would have warmed up and turned into the smoothest hot chocolate in my high-speed blender. Maybe next time cause tonight was to make ice cream!

I stirred it twice before going to bed and this morning, more stirring! Had a little bowl after dinner Sunday night and it was lovely!

 And one more recipe that I love!

Sunday morning smoothie:
one orange
small head of parsley
2 frozen bananas
1T cacao
pinch of cinnamon
few small drops vanilla stevia
1c water
Made 24 oz

And this post just keeps on going. I need to mention three blogs I am Loving right now. In no particular order:
Averie writes this fantastic blog from Arizona with such love, creative recipes and a yoga pose for each day!
Erica loves Pure Food & Wine and One Lucky Duck I think as much as I do! I love that! And her pictures of their food makes me feel like I'm there! Seriously, I would buy them so I could frame them as inspiration in my kitchen.
Gena is honest, lovely and creative and her blog is delicious and informative.

Have a beautiful Monday!
