Ice Cream For Breakfast!!

Inspired by a fellow blogger at Raw Food Passion I decided to make some Blueberry Ice Cream last night.  I modified her recipe at bit, so here is my version:

Blueberry Ice Cream
In Vita-Mix:
1 c. frozen wild blueberries
3 frozen bananas
a little raw almond milk to blend until you get a soft serve consistency
I varied my speed from 3 to 6
Then we topped it off with unsweetened coconut & crushed pecans and a Blueberry sauce.

Blueberry Sauce
1/2 c. frozen wild blueberries
1 t. agave
blend to desired consistency
I left mine a bit chunky for texture

This morning after walking with our neighhood ladies I decided to have a bowl of fruit...thoughts of blueberry ice cream came flooding I decided to make a fruity ice cream with the bowl of mixed fresh fruit I had on hand.  I made this one with a pudding like consistency.  You could add more frozen bananas for make it firmer

In Vita-Mix:
2 c. fresh mixed fruit (strawberries, kiwi, mango, oranages)
1 frozen banana
blend to get desired consistency
Topped with pecans and unsweetened coconut

This is one of many benefits of eating a raw food diet.  You can treat yourself to yummy foods and still be eating healthy!!
