Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
I went to a great class at our Whole Foods Market last Friday. My friend Kat Conrad does the class and she is always incredibly clever. She puts combinations of food together that you would never guess would work. This was one of them! Desserts are one of her specialties. I am not sure if she has her ice cream recipes posted yet or not on her website, but just click on her name to check.
The vanilla ice cream is made using a yellow zucchini and is just amazing. My husband sprinkled cacao nibs on his, but I liked mine just plain. I used vanilla powder and it really gave it a rich flavor.
We also made chocolate ice cream. The chocolate one had the common green skinned zucchini, and it also had fresh mint leaves added. It was not only really rich, but refreshing as well.
We really enjoyed both of these this past weekend, but I have to admit we ate way more than we needed to eat!
I also made a butternut squash lasagna for Sunday dinner. (It went well with the vanilla ice cream! hehe!)
Doesn't this picture just make you want to run for a fork???
It was a really great raw weekend at our house. How about yours???
