It is freezing in Sydney and guess what I am craving for- Ice cream 🙂
Made one with frozen banana slices and peanut butter. It was ‘THE’ best, I have ever had in my life 🙂 I am going keep this post simple and short.
You need to freeze banana slices-I always have them in my freezer. There is no specific measurement to how many banana slices you need and how much peanut butter you require. Into a steel blade food processor, you add frozen banana slices, peanut butter and blend them until it comes to ice cream consistency 🙂 That is the white layer. Then you add cacao powder( to the blender ) depending on how chocolaty you like your brown layer to be. Blend for 30 seconds. Add that on top and that’s it 🙂 Try to swirl with a tooth pick and put it back in the freezer for 5 mins and enjoy 🙂
I was away for a month in South Africa volunteering with lions (Excuse for not blogging regularly) Had the most amazing time of my life :D. Got to do lot of adventure activities-one of which was cage diving with sharks at Gaansbaai , Cape town.
It was a freezing cold day and had to jump into the water, do up-down up-down like 200 times, it was exhausting. Back on shore, the tour company that took us into the ocean had this vegetable soup ready to warm us up. No offence – I thought Australia was the biggest meat eating country. I was wrong. It is South Africa. Finding vegan food is a challenge there :P. Anyways, I did my normal questioning with the ladies there – Any chicken stock,butter, cream blah blah blah? The lady who made the soup said it had only lentils, potato and carrots. NOTHING ELSE. I had a mouthful of the soup and man, it was the best soup I have ever had. Got the recipe from the ladies.
Split pigeon pea-1/2 cup soaked in hot water for 30 mins and boil until its mushy
Add all the ingredients, lower the heat and cook on low flame for like 40 mins. Keep adding water to retain the soup consistency
Add salt and pepper and that’s it 🙂 Yummy soup. No oil or stock.
Deepa of Spice Rack blog had added a green mango for sourness. You could do that too 🙂
