Mango Pinapple Banana Nice Cream

As the great John Joseph, legendary New York punk icon, vegan of 30+ years and Cro-Mag's frontman said, "If it's all about the food, you're an asshole". Plant-Based eating starts with food but leads to so much more; a deeper understanding of yourself and others, an inner peace that's unexplainable, and this overwhelming sense of physical & mental well-being. Add to that, bottomless Banana Nice Cream, and I really don't know what more a person could ask for. 

I'm eating Nice Cream as I type.. and if I'm being honest, I eat it about 2x a day, everyday. Did you think I was kidding when I told you that when I find something I like, I stick to it? This shit is bomb. The only caveat is that you really need a high powered blender or a food processor. I have a Vitamix blender (best investment ever) and the tamper is a must when blending frozen solid foods with no liquid. If you're using a food processor or a less than stellar blender, make sure you chop up your bananas into small pieces before you freeze them.

Mango Pineapple Banana Nice Cream

3-5 Frozen Bananas (freeze for at least 15 hours)

4-5 Pitted Dates

1-1 1/2 Cups Frozen Pineapple

1-1 1/2 Cups Frozen Mango

1 Capful Vanilla Extract

2-3 Huge Handfuls of Spinach

Place all ingredients in a high powered blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Scoop out into a bowl and add raw groat granola, raw oats, raisins, almonds or your other favorite toppings.

If you want to feel alive, eat living thriving foods.

Hi.

Ok you guys. I did it. I kind of did it. Ok, I definitely at least started it! I’ve been thinking about creating this space for so long and finally said fuck it (I have a potty mouth, you’ll get used to that soon)!

As humans, I feel like we doubt ourselves way too often. I kept putting it off for "later", thinking it wouldn't be perfect, people might not like it, and that I didn't want to be just "another blogger".

Don't worry, I've obviously realized how crazy all of these things sound....because OF COURSE it won't be perfect, of course some people won't like it (Hai hater.), I CAN be "another blogger" and still do my own damn thing, but most importantly, why the hell wait until later, when I have right now? 

So naturally, I decided to start this thing off with pancakes. Because who doesn't love pancakes?? 

I’ve been making these babies for about two years now and just nailed down the recipe to the point where they are perfect every time! They have the added bonus of taking almost no effort to make and tasting great cold! Oh, and did I mention that they are vegan, gluten free and AMAZING!?! Don’t worry, you can thank me later.

INGREDIENTS

3 ripe + spotty bananas

1 1/4 Cup Rolled Oats

2 Tbs Coconut Sugar (optional)

1 Tsp Cinnamon

1 Tsp Nutmeg

1 capful of vanilla extract

Put all ingredients in your blender or food processor and add a touch of water to move things along. Blend until smooth and pour out in even amounts on a parchment paper lined pan. Bake at 350-400 for 8-12 minutes on each side.

The end result should be soft on the inside with a little crunch on the outside, you can top with Peanut Butter + Jelly or just douse with your favorite organic syrup (clearly the method I chose here)!

 Besides pancake recipes, I'm excited to have this space to share, create, and connect with all of you. So here goes nothin'.
