The lover’s kisses

This wonderful treat is a must for the holiday season! It’s very easy to prepare and you can either serve it at your party or give it to your guests as a party favor before they leave…trust me they’ll come back for more 😉

Ingredients

1 cup of organic rolled oats
1 cup finely chopped organic pitted dates
1/4 cup unsweetened organic cocoa powder
1/2 cup organic almond butter
2 teaspoons pure organic vanilla extract
Pinch ground organic nutmeg
Pinch ground organic cinnamon
organic honey

 

Put the oats in your food processor until finely grounded. Add the dates, 2 tablespoons of cocoa, the almond butter, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon and process again until everything is mixed in and it sticks together.

Taste the mixture, if you find that it’s too bitter for your taste, add a little bit or honey or agave and process it again until it has the right sweetness for you.

Place what you have left of the cocoa powder in a small bowl.

With your hands roll the mixture into small balls making sure that everything is sticking together then dip the truffles in the cocoa powder, be sure to really roll them in it.

Chill until ready to eat and when you’re serving drizzle them with some honey or agave nectar.

Enjoy it!

All-you-can-eat banana and almond butter ice cream

What a beautiful Memorial Day weekend we had here in NJ! The sun was shining; the temperatures were in the 80’s…it truly was the beginning of summer!

We had a nice relaxing time with my boyfriend, we went to the movies and enjoyed a few picnics in our yard.

So I decided to try a recipe that I saw on the internet a while ago…ice cream made with just 1 ingredient!

Yup you heard me right…only 1 ingredient, and it’s dairy and sugar free!

You will only need a banana…that’s it! I adjusted the recipe a little bit and I have to say: it’s delicious and it truly feels like eating a bowl of delicious ice cream!

Here’s my recipe for you, enjoy!

All-you-can-eat banana and almond butter ice cream


Ingredients for 2 people:

3 Organic bananas, ripe, with a few brown spots

1 Spoon of organic almond butter

Mixed organic berries

Chopped organic almonds

Peel and cut your bananas in small coins pieces. Put them on a tray and freeze them in your freezer (at least a couple of hours).

When they are frozen and hard put them in a food processor and start blending them on high.

In a few minutes you’ll see them turning into a creamy texture, exactly like ice cream! Keep scraping the bowl of the mixer so everything gets very well combined!

When they turn into a nice cream add one spoon of almond butter and mix all together!

Your ice cream is ready to be served! Top it with some mixed berries and some chopped almonds.

It was my first time doing it and I’ll be making it more often. I’m going to try different toppings as well, from walnuts, to chocolate chips, to caramel.

You can also refreeze it!

Here’s to summer folks!
