When Water Waits…

Alliteration is a tool. A tool for greatness.

Basically, tonight after dinner (which was a great spaghetti-substitute dish — thats for another post), I was thirsty.

My mom was in the process of making some Banana Ice Cream and I decided that hot cocoa would go perfectly with that.

Hot Cocoa

Ingredients:

  1. 1 teaspoon Cocoa Powder
  2. 4 Tablespoons Coconut milk/Almond milk (I used some vanilla coconut milk) or regular milks if you’re going dairy

Instructions:

  1. Pour cocoa powder into mug and break up any lumps. Lumps are evil. You do not want lumps
  2. Pour in a little hot, but not boiling water, into the mug. Make sure the cocoa blends well before adding milk
  3. Add the milk
  4. Finish adding water to desired height

Magically delicious. Except its better than lucky charms.


Banana Ice Cream

My dad grilled some delicious chicken breasts, as well as a bunch of zucchini, squash, and portabello mushrooms for dinner.

I’m still getting over my carb cravings, and post-dinner was terrible. I was aching for something sweet. My mom, being the angel she is, had suggested we make Banana Ice Cream.

Banana Ice Cream

Ingredients:

  1. Frozen Banana

Thats it. Surprised me too

Instructions:

  1. Slice bananas into sections to allow for easier food processing
  2. Place bananas into freezer until frozen (they shouldn’t feel mushy at all)
  3. Once bananas are thoroughly frozen, place them in a food processor
  4. Process and enjoy!

I used three bananas total for the batch I made, and I had to use 1/4 a cup of almond milk to help the bananas blend better. It was more than enough for my mom and I.

Its the simple recipes like this that make Paleo so amazing. This is as sweet as most Ice Cream yet dairy free, without any added sugar.

The recipe doesn’t end there though – you can add tons of things to make it even more delicious.

  • Cocoa powder
  • Vanilla
  • Berries
  • Cinnamon

You get the drift. Here’s my finished product which included a tablespoon of cocoa powder, 2 teaspoons vanilla, and a healthy amount of cinnamon.
