Strawberry Ice Cream
Added on May 18, 2022
2 cups frozen strawberries
14 oz canned coconut milk, refrigerated

Place a loaf pan in the freezer. In a high speed blender or food processor, add your chilled coconut milk, adding the layer of cream first, followed by the liquid. Add your frozen strawberries and maple syrup and blend until thick and creamy. Do not over blend, or it will become too icy when thawing. Pour the strawberry ice cream mixture into the frozen loaf tin. To ensure it doesn't become too icy, lightly mix your ice cream ever 20-30 minutes for the first hour. Thaw for 10-15 minutes before eating. Enjoy!

Banana Bread
Added on May 17, 2022
5 Tbsp. unsalted butter (or coconut oil)
1/2 cup honey (or pure maple syrup)
1 3/4 cup mashed ripe banana (about 3 1/2 large or 5 medium bananas)
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups white whole wheat flour, (AP Flour is good too) sifted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. Lay a sheet of parchment paper across the bottom and up the sides of the pan. Melt the butter in a large glass bowl in the microwave. Combine the honey and mashed banana to the bowl. Next add in the eggs and mix one at a time. Now, add the baking soda, salt, cinnamon and vanilla to the bowl. And mix until very well combined. Add the sift and flour and mix with a rubber spatula until just combined. Try not to over-mix. Transfer the batter to the prepared baking pan. Bake for 55-65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Check on the banana bread after 35 minutes and loosely cover with foil, to prevent the top from over-browning. When done let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then transfer it to a wire rack to finish cooling. Enjoy!
