Yes, it may be the middle of November, but those soft serve cravings obviously didn’t get the memo. If you find yourself with an inkling for soft serve, especially of the chocolate variety, treat yourself to this superfood version full of nutrient-rich ingredients like raw cacao, omega and protein rich hemp seeds, adaptogenic maca powder, lucuma and mesquite, and an infusion of antioxidant-loaded chaga mushroom tea. Where’s a spoon??

 

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup chaga tea, chilled
  • 3 large frozen bananas
  • 2-3 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 1 tablespoon maca powder
  • 1 tablespoon lucuma powder
  • 1 tablespoon mesquite powder
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • Pinch of celtic sea salt
  • For garnish: 2 teaspoons raw cacao nibs

Instructions

  1. Blend the first set of ingredients until smooth in a high speed blender or a food processor. Just DON'T over process or it will start to get too melty.
  2. Add the cacao nibs and blend for a few seconds to break them down. Eat immediately.
  3. I drizzled the chocolate sauce recipe from my Sweetly Raw Desserts book. It adds a special touch but isn't necessary.

Notes

Brew up a large batch of chaga to drink and use in smoothies! Make sure the bananas are fully ripe, with brown spots. Make sure to peel them and break them into chunks before freezing. The salt brings out the flavours even more and also adds minerals. Don't be afraid of this healthy salt.

Heather became a health conscious vegan at the age of 14 after reading the book Fit For Life. She discovered new ways to enjoy her favorite foods, particularly her beloved desserts.  Heather’s curiosity was peaked when she stumbled upon a raw food restaurant at the age of 16, and by the time she was 18, she attended her first raw retreat for a month in California. Her passion for food led her to a two year culinary school program at the age of 18. Despite the fact that she wasn’t interested in most of the food being prepared, she gained valuable experience by learning the basics and all that the food industry has to offer. She went on to work in various restaurants, bakeries, and as a personal chef. Heather's serious sweet tooth led her to author four raw dessert ebooks: Just Desserts, Raw Party Parfait, Moonie Pie Recipes, and The Ultimate Raw Ice Cream Cake.
