Today the sun is shining bright and i was feeling like having a summery, sweet delicacy for lunch, so i opted for a classic raw vegan recipe: the banana nice cream! 🌞
The ingredients you need to make this are:
- frozen bananas
- 1 room temperature banana
- cacao nibs
- 2 tbsp carob powder
- medjool dates
- 1 tsp peanut butter
Actually to make nice cream you only need bananas but the rest of the ingredients are a nice addition to create a sort of chocolate chunk & cacao ice cream. All you need to do is blend the frozen bananas with the regular banana (i add it just to help my blender run more smoothly and you can add a splash of water too if your blender is not very powerful – do not add too much though otherwise you’ll make a regular smoothie). I did two batches: in the first one i blended the frozen bananas with half of the room temperature one and 1 tbsp of cacao nibs, for the second one i used carob powder instead. Place your nice cream in a bowl and add a couple of sweet medjool dates (or any other type of dates of your choice) and sprinkle with cacao nibs and peanut butter. Et voilà! You have heaven in a bowl!
You can use as many bananas as you wish, since this was my lunch i used 9 and it made me feel satiated and nourished but also light as a feather. I ate this while sitting outside in the sun as usual and after that i meditated because i was feeling so great, i can’t even properly explain the emotions that i was experiencing.
My mantra is “Thank you. I love you.” I inhale “thank you” and exhale “i love you” while taking very deep and slow breaths through my nose. I do this with my eyes closed because i find that i can focus better on my center and on getting relaxed. I also often imagine myself hugging people and hugging our planet, that my sound weird but it makes me feel deeply at peace. After a while i open my eyes and start thanking and sending love to everything that i see: every little animal, every plant, every tree, the Sun, the Earth. 🌍💚
As you can see i live in a town and I appreciate every insect and tree that i see around me, this way i feel surrounded by Nature without having to take a plane. It’s important to appreciate what we have in our daily life, to feel at peace and in harmony with everything that surrounds us. Putting out positive vibrations of Love helps our reality go in the direction of evolution, so try to take a little time for yourself everyday and put out your infinite love energy into the Universe. It will all come back to you, i promise. 🌷💘
