Cherry Nicecream

This nice cream is definitely in my top 3 of amazing nice cream varieties (My favorite is, and will always be, banana/peanut butter with almond/chocolate sprinkles). I eat nice cream almost everyday, and I never get sick of it.

If you haven’t heard about nice cream, it’s an ice cream made entirely out of frozen ripe bananas. How awesome is that? No heavy cream, no eggs, no sugar or oil. Just bananas. Bananas have a high content of pectin, which is why they turn into such a delicious and creamy ice cream. But they have to be ripe before they are frozen.

You’ll need:

3 frozen ripe bananas (Peel them and break them into smaller chunks before you freeze them.)

75g fresh cherries (Don’t forget to pick the stone out)

How it’s done:

Put the frozen bananas and the cherries in a foodprocessor and blend until it’s nice and creamy.

(It’s also very delicious with a bit of chocolate sprinkle on top.

Enjoy.

Love,

Katrine.

Simple and cheap low-fat cacao bliss balls

Usually bliss balls contain plenty of nuts and coconut oil or butter, which makes them high in fat. There´s nothing wrong with nuts, as they are very nutritious, but since they are high in fat, they should to be ate in moderation. These bliss balls are not low in calories, but they are low in fat and they are very delicious. They are very suitable as a healthy weekend snack for the family, or even as a healthy treat in your child’s school lunch box. This recipe will make approximately 25 bliss balls.

Ingredients:

150g rolled oats

25 fresh dates

2,5 oz / 0,75 dl water

25g unsweetened cacao powder

2 tbsp. rum extract

Shredded coconut to roll them in

How it’s done:

Blend the rolled oats, dates, water, cacao powder and rom extract in a food processor. When it’s done it should look and feel like a thick dough.

Take some dough and roll it into small bliss balls, and roll them in shredded coconut.

Enjoy your weekend snack.

Love,

Katrine

Cacao smoothie

I really enjoy a smoothie in the morning, and so does the kids. Usually we make fruit smoothies, but sometimes it’s nice to make it extra delicious. This smoothie is still suitable as a healthy meal. If you didn’t know already, cacao is actually very rich in zinc, which is one of the minerals you need to be aware of on a plant-based diet if you don’t eat a big variety of foods. I add the sesame seeds because they are very nutritious, especially when it comes to calcium, and since I do not serve dairy for the kids at home, it’s important to me to make sure they get it elsewhere.

Ingredients:

3 bananas (I use 2 frozen and 1 fresh to get a nice milkshake-like consistency)

3 dates

1 tbsp. unsweetened cacao powder

1 tbsp. sesame seeds (Optional)

7 oz / 2 dl almond milk (Or whichever you prefer).

How it’s done:

Blend all the ingredients together.

Love,

Katrine

Strawberry smoothie

Smoothies are delicious, nutritious and easy to make. I love the combination of bananas and strawberries.

For one portion of strawberry smoothie you need:

    • 3 ripe bananas
    • 1 cup of strawberries
    • 1 tpsp. sesame seeds (Optional, but it gives the smoothie a calcium boost)
    • 1 cup of water or plant-based milk.

How it’s done:

  • Blend it all up and enjoy
  • Tip: You can adjust the thickness by adding more og less water / plant-based milk.
