View Full Version : help
does anyone have any good dessert receipes? I dont have a sprouter or a dehydrater yet. What about raw ice cream? Why does everyone shy away from dairy? Im new too raw and im craving something sweet. :confused:
There's an alternative for dairy icecream, it's frozen bananas in pieces, put into foodprocessor or champion juicer, et voila, icecream!! (you can find the recipe on this board I think, try doing a search on icecream)
Dairy is basically not plantbased but an animal product, and milk is for babies and with milk I only mean mommie's milk... We don't need the milk for calcium, we can get better calcium from veggies (try searching this board for milk or dairy as well, or go to http://www.notmilk.com)
For me personally, I never really liked milk, it smelled bad to me and I didn't like the taste, I did eat it processed in cheese or like cakes and cookies and stuff... but I noticed that it cloggs up my nose. I had some veggie soup yesterday, cooked, my mom made it, and she put a little milk in it, and this morning I woke up with half of my nose blocked and I had to pass some muceous (sp?) too! This happens to me everytime I eat dairy products... I've heard similar stories from other people...
Hope this helped :)

I make the ice cream with bananas, nuts and carob. It is very satisfying.

Lynn, after going off dairy for just 2 days my mucousy (sp?) cough (bit TMI?) of months just disappeared. Have just read "Fit for Life" (finally...I know...) and the explanation of the dairy/calcium issue in there is very clear & motivating (to give up, or greatly reduce, dairy that is)
The bannana "icecream" is a real hit in our house. Also fresh dates - just as they are.
I've just put some banana's in the freezer, after reading the posts I have to try it!
I'm wondering if there is any nutrients lost in the freezing process?
I was reading on another message board that freezing was not a good idea, I'm not sure what to think, but I'm definately trying my frozen banana's tomorrow. What a lovely treat.

Freezing does lose some nutrients but looking at the whole picture it still has nutrients and is 200% better for you then regular ice cream.
