The first post from my original food blog is the first post on Anne food. too! And it reads..
Here we go! My first real blog post. Right off the bat I'd like to thank everyone who has repeatedly suggested I start a food blog, because having people to share my cooking and recipes with makes them that much more satisfying!
To celebrate finishing my portfolio and getting my website up and running, I thought it would be appropriate to kick this whole thing off with a sweet treat! One of my favorites, for which I always have the ingredients in my pantry: banana sundaes. Feel free to use whatever toppings you like such as fresh berries or chocolate sauce, this is just what I had on hand.
Being allergic to cow dairy yet not willing to forgo the pleasure of creamy frozen desserts, I'm a big fan of making my own simple ice creams. An added bonus is that they are actually healthful!
BANANA ICE CREAM SUNDAE
- 1 banana, frozen
- sliced almonds
- chopped pecans
- unsweetened coconut flakes
- raw cacao nibs
Cut the frozen banana in chunks and place them in the food processor. Turn it on and let it run for a few minutes, stopping periodically to scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula. At first the banana will look like a disaster, but will soon form smooth ice cream.
Meanwhile toast the nuts and coconut flakes in the toaster oven at 350 degrees until lightly golden. Watch the coconut flakes like a hawk as they burn insanely quickly, and will be ready in a fraction of the time it takes the nuts.
Spoon the ice cream into a bowl, garnish with your toppings, and dig in!
