Warning! Do not lick your Food Processor Blade! Raw Ice Cream

Now I was always the one who scooped out the ice cream...You know with the metal scoop...and when finished the first thing I would is give the scoop a lick.  Ouch not to smart right.  So then I tried short licks...and well I always got that ice cream off!  Now please when you make your raw ice cream I beg you not to lick the food processor blade....Even though it looks so tasty...and I know you hate to waste that little bit....But really it is not worth cutting your tongue for.  I tell you it was so hard for me not to lick the blade  :)

I have seen recipes for raw ice cream before, and I have been wanting to make my I have been looking for an affordable ice cream maker.  Yesterday I saw this Happy Herbivore recipe here.  And I was like..."hey I can do that!"  And I had everything I needed!  So today I made raw ice cream!  This what I did!

Raw Ice Cream for one!

1 frozen Banana
1/4 cup Almond Milk 
1 Dried Fig (that I soaked the day before)
1/4 tsp Organic Cocoa

Throw all in your food processor(blender may work as well) And whirl until it looks like soft serve ice cream!
Enjoy your ice cream right away!  (this bowl started melting on me cause I was running all over the house trying to find the card for the camera!!!)

I think this recipe would do amazing with home made coconut milk...and I am going to have fun making different flavours this summer!

Banana "ice cream" is one of my favorites. I do sometimes lick the blade... so I totally identified with your title!
