Frozen "Chocolate" or Vanilla Dessert
Delectable Non-Dairy Frozen Treat
Sarai Susanna's Creations (1979)
5 Dates (soaked in small amount of alkaline water for 10 min. then Remove pits
3/4 cups cold alkaline Water (alkaline healthiest choice)
1/4 tsp Sea Salt (optional)
1/2 cup Cashews or soaked Almonds with skins removed
2 Tbsp (Navitas) *Cacao Powder or Organic unsweetened Carob powder
1 -1/2 tsp Vanilla Flavoring
4-5 ripe Bananas
*Cacao powder has a richer chocolate taste without the caffeine (created 1998)
Blend together all ingredients except the Bananas. When fully blended, then slowly add pieces of cut up bananas to gently blend and smooth together.
Other options: Vanilla (created 2003)
Instead of Cacao /Carob Replace with:
2-3 Tbsp of Navitas Lacuma powder
2-3 tsp of Vanilla flavoring
Blend in Fruits or Nuts -
Cherries, blueberries, chopped nuts, seeds or desiccated unsweetened coconut are great additives for crunchy flavorful taste.
When using Fruits, you exchange Vanilla Flavoring for Fruit flavoring - i.e. strawberry flavoring with strawberries, etc.
Freshly created frozen dessert will have the consistency of Carvel - soft Ice cream /custard, after freezing it will have the consistency of ice milk.
