First of all--someone asked for the recipe for Jana Banana Chocolate/ Peppermint Ice Cream, so here it is!
2 large Bananas
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 cup Soy Milk (or more)
2 medium Dates, chopped
1 T Cacao or Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
Peppermint Extract (a few drops to taste)
Cut up bananas into small one-inch pieces, place in a baggie and freeze for 24 hours. To high-powered blender, add soy milk, vanilla, cocoa powder, dates, peppermint extract, and blend. Drop frozen banana pieces in slowly. You may need to add more soy milk to get the right consistency.
So last night I made Cara's Apple Cake from Eat to Live--and it was pretty good. I was hoping it would be a little better!! I think it is one of those recipes that I know it's good for me, and it satisfies a sweet tooth--but I'm not bananas over it. I topped it with some icing (I used the recipe from Healthy Chocolate Cake from Eat for Health--I added cinnamon instead of the cocoa) and icing helped!! It is very appley--and I think I wanted more of a "cake." But it will definitely get eaten!! We gave it a B+ The pics show the cake with and without the icing.
