Raw Banana Coconut Ice Cream

Happy Monday! Well, just in case you are not so excited about it being Monday, I am here to cheer you up. How? By letting you know that you can have "ice cream" and feel good about it. Now, I am pretty certain that this is best done in a high powered blender such as a Vita Mix, but if you don't have one, go ahead and try it and let me know if it works in a regular blender. It is creamy and sweet and chewy and oh-so-yummy . . . everything you want in an ice cream.

Raw Banana Coconut Ice Cream with Cacao Nib Crunch
serves 2

3 frozen bananas (they should be very ripe when you freeze them and be frozen for at least 24 hours)
1/3 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
approx. 3 Tbsp. almond milk or soy milk, or even cow's milk if that's all you've got
sprinkling of cacao nibs for each serving

Break or cut each banana into 4 chunks. Place in Vita Mix blender with coconut and almond milk. Turn on blender and let it do it's magic. Serve with cacao nibs sprinkled on top.
