Chocolate Ice Cream (raw vegan)
This recipe is for a rich, chocolatey ice cream that tastes absolutely amazing! Time: 5 minutes Servings: 2 big bowls
- processor or vitamix
- 1 cup cashews
- 1/3 cup cacao powder
- 1/6 cup carob powder
- 2 trays ice (about 28 cubes)
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- Put all ingredients into a food processor and blend into ice cream. If not blending after awhile, add a little more syrup (1 tbsp at a time) until it blends.
- Top with optional raw vegan magic chocolate shell, and Enjoy!
- If using a vitamix blender, you have to keep using the tamper and pressing the mixture down towards the blades as it blends. Sometimes it will overheat and shut off. Simply wait a few minutes for it to cool down, then continue.
WHY RAW VEGAN ICE CREAM IS A GREAT CHOICE
Raw foods are Alive! They contain the biophotons (life giving light energy) our bodies need. People who eat raw foods have increased energy, feel better, and have way less health problems. Raw foods contain more nutrients and enzymes as well.
Not only are they great on their own, but raw foods also don’t contain harmful components.
“Colds, flu, mumps or any lymphatic or respiratory condition can be largely attributed to congestion from dairy products. Dairy products are highly mucus-forming and constipating. When you have a cold or respiratory problem, where do you think that clear, yellow, green, brown or black mucus originally comes from? Where do tumors come from? Or lymph node swelling, especially swelling of the tonsils?”-Robert Morse, N.D.
SAY NO TO PASTEURIZED PUSS!!!
As I grew up, cow’s milk was something I drank regularly. Many people even encouraged drinking cow milk because they believe it is healthy. Everyone I knew drank it, and I didn’t think much of it.
Later on, when I started thinking more deeply about health, it felt wrong to drink cow milk. I brought up to people the idea of drinking dog’s milk. They thought this was a gross and ridiculous idea. It baffled me that they would think that about dog’s milk, but not consider the parallels with drinking cow’s milk.
As if that concept wasn’t enough to gross me out about dairy, I also heard about the puss factor…how can we expect to be healthy when we consume ingredients from unhealthy animals?
“According to the USDA, 1 in 6 dairy cows in the United States suffers from clinical mastitis…This level of disease is reflected in the concentration of somatic cells in the American milk supply. When a cow is infected, greater than 90% of the somatic cells in her milk are neutrophils, the inflammatory immune cells that form pus. The average somatic cell count in U.S. milk per spoonful is 1,120,000.”– Michael Greger, M.D. FACLM
