Today I want to share with you two very simple, tasty recipes …

First, a blueberry-banana-chlorella smoothie recipe.

Take 3/4 a cup of organic soy milk, one 250 g carton of fresh blueberries (substitute with frozen berries if you don’t have fresh ones), 3 ripe bananas, and 1 tsp of chlorella (use spirulina or barley gras powder as alternatives). And blend!
You can also add a spice such as cinnamon, cardamom, or vanilla if you like.

To be honest, I enjoy the simple recipes the most … fancy can be exciting and new, but in the end … if we have access to RIPE fruit, we don’t necessarily need to top nature’s creations … a spice here and there is a great way to add another dimension to the bouquet of aromas that our fruit is already gifting us with.

The second recipe is a naturally sweet and refreshing snack for a beautiful hot summer day:

Banana Blueberry Ice Cream

All I did was peel and break up about 4 ripe bananas, put them in a plastic bag and then in the freezer. Once they were frozen, I added them along with some frozen blueberries, 3-4 heaping tsp of coconut sugar and 1 heaping tsp of vanilla powder in the food processor. When you put all the ingredients into your food processor you may add some water or soy/nut milk to get a nice and creamy consistency.

Since I had a bottle of orange-mango sauce handy, I poured that on top. You can make your own sauce by simply blending one mango, the juice of 2 large oranges, 1 or 2 medjool dates, some cinnamon and a bit of water.

A typical and simple raw ice cream recipe that you can also try is “chocolate ice cream” by processing frozen bananas with cacao or carob powder.

I hope you are enjoying the sun and do share your favourite healthy ice cream creations with us 🙂
