Well, raw vegan ice-cream anyway!
I really don’t like being deprived, so I love the fact that you can create recipes that resemble the unhealthy dairy, sugar-laden, fat-laden products and make them in a tasty healthful way with raw gourmet food.
This recipe comes from Anand who owns Raw Power, a business that offers raw foods, superfoods, raw food classes & retreats. He is based in Murwillumbah, but does travel, so if you ever get the opportunity to attend one of his food preparation classes, you will be in for a treat!
