My one week of raw food is over. I did not lose as much weight as I wanted (I was quite disappointed yesterday about that but after eating a hot meal today I am fine), but I do feel a difference in my body shape. I feel flatter and leaner. Plus I imagine with all the greens I put in my body the past week, I only did it good. So what if I did not lose as much as I did last time, (which is weird because this time I exercised as well), I did my body a favor either way.

It was a difficult one week. But I managed it. And this sugar free, vegan, more or less guilt free banana ice cream helped me quite a bit.

Seriously, this was a treat that I had been craving for. I don’t know if it was the fact that I was deprived of all things unhealthy, but I found this ice cream to taste exactly how a chocolate ice cream tastes- creamy and chocolatey. And it comes together in a jiffy. All you need is a frozen banana and raw cacao powder. I did use a splash of almond milk just to get the blender going, but you might not require it at all. No churning in the ice cream maker. No cooking raw yolks. No cream. No nothing. Just a frozen banana, cacao powder and a blender and in two minutes you have a nice creamy chocolate ice cream without the added guilt that comes with ice cream.

A friend sent me the link to this recipe when she saw that I was on raw. It will be unfair on my part to not share this recipe with as many people as I can. So here it is- Creamy Raw Chocolate Ice cream.

    I can’t wait to try this!

    Maybe you didn’t lose “as much weight” as you wanted because you **were** exercising… maybe you gained muscle weight. If you feel “leaner and flatter” that’s the true story… just go by how your clothes feel, and forget about those pound measures.

  2. Thanks for sharing this ice cream recipe! Incredibly healthy – and looks so creamy! I am making it right now:)

  5. Yum! This icecream looks so rich and delicious who would thing that it is sugar free. I bet it was a rough week. I really crave foods that are warm and that part of a raw diet would be the hardest for me. Cheers to being healthier. Take Care, BAM
