Raise your hand if you remember BON BONS? Yes, the little chunks of ice cream covered in chocolate that you just popped in your mouth. There was just something about them that made you feel like royalty when you indulged in them. In fact most of us think that royalty just “lay around eating bon bons”… Was it the rich creamy ice cream? Was it the decadent chocolate that they were dipped in? Was it the fact that they were the perfect way to BLOW YOUR DIET? What ever it was, I had my fair share of them in my days past. Now that I do not indulge in any of the conventional ingredients that traditional bon bons are made of, how am I to feel like royalty again? I can regain that feeling without all the stuff I don’t want by making my recipe for BANANA BON BONS. Yes.. they are still frozen treats. YES.. they have a creamy and dreamy center.
OH YES.. they are covered in decadent chocolate! Since they have ALL of the bon bons beloved components, what is missing? Well these little guys are missing the cholesterol, dairy, refined sugar, trans-fat, preservatives, emulsifiers, and highly processed artificial ingredients that the commercially produced bon bon have. I am sorry that I had to just ruin the fantasy of the other bon bons but wait….. Here is what this recipe has–Banana, coconut oil, date syrup, cacao and shredded coconut; and they are raw vegan paleo. You can definitely feel good about those ingredients and that they conform to a healthy lifestyle! AND again, the creamy dreamy chocolate covered frozen treat that TASTES AMAZING! So even though we crave bon bons, we can ALL indulge in BANANA BON BONS and feel like royalty again! BON BON APPETIT!

Now, now, stop wrinkling your nose. Yes you, I see you. There is always something new to made for dessert. For starters the creamy smoothness of this ice cream will far surpass many of the standard commercial ice creams that you will find at your local grocery store. See, I am easing you into this onion ice cream idea. hehe Is it working? I wanted to create an ice cream I would fall madly in love with, you know the kind that you just want to bathe in? Ok, maybe we don’t want to bathe in onion ice cream, but hang in there with me. It’s not often that I let you down, why would you think that I would start here?
In my kitchen lab, our (my) unique flavor development process embraces the idea that “eating ice cream is an experience that creates memories”. Our (that would be my again) “recipe” for developing a new flavor includes large measures of experience, passion and down right “pickiness” for creating a memorable flavor.
My flavor development team (ah, me again hehe) includes very passionate people (me) who enjoy GOOD ice cream. Their (those would be my) ice cream flavor concepts are brought to life in our lab where we (I) try as many creative flavors that I can handle. Our Team (Bob and I) is committed to eating as much ice cream as necessary to ensure that only the best flavor concepts make it into the Nouveau Raw line-up! Dang, I really need to hire a larger staff! lol
