Nothing says ‘sharing’ like a Neapolitan nice cream banana split! Three different flavors of nice cream, sweet syrupy sauce, creamy banana… Maybe you won’t want to share it after all.

No matter what the occassion, this Neapolitan nice cream banana split is there for you, in all it’s glorious wholesome deliciousness!
Green smoothies are awesome. All the goodness of fruit plus the nutrient density of dark greens! This tropical green smoothie’s got a bit of a twist, with a healthy dose of cilantro adding a bit of a spicy kick to the mix.
Not everyone likes cilantro. This is an unfortunate and curious biological fact. Other people seem like they can’t get enough of it. But don’t worry, if cilantro isn’t you thing, this smoothie still rocks without it. You could substitute a little bit of jalapeno if you want a slightly different take on a spicy tropical green smoothie.
This is a particularly awesome breakfast smoothie. Super nutritious way to start your day, plus the invigorating aroma of cilantro!

The aroma of the Almond Banana Brittle Cookie Squares drying in the dehydrator is equivalent to baking chocolate chip cookies in the oven! One of two things almost happened… I would pitch a tent in my pantry to camp out below the dehydrator or I was going to bring the machine into my bedroom. It was just heavenly. One thing I noticed when I had switched to a high raw diet was that my sense of smell really developed and trust me, this bar caused my nose to go into hyperdrive mode!
These bars are firm, crispy and chewy all in one. My husband loved the ones with chocolate the most, but then he does love chocolate. The combination of the almonds, bananas and chocolate created a wonderful medley of flavors. Bob and I bantered back and forth a bit as to what to call them… bars? cookies? He thought they were too thin to be bars and well, I didn’t think the square shape reminded me of a cookie. We playfully duked it out… we met in the middle… Almond Banana Brittle Cookie Squares. LOL He walked away smiling as he went to eat another one.
So call them bars, call them cookies, call I’ll want one when you make them.
