The “Banana Nice Cream” (nice pun there, kids) looks yummy and really simple – just blend and freeze – and vegan too! I might throw in a bit of honey and fresh-ground allspice, and needless to say, if I were the sort to do such things, I would freeze single servings in inappropriately-shaped popsicle molds.
The cocoa-oat truffles almost boarder on something you might see at a Seder (swapping out the oats, of course). Come to think of it, maybe I’ll make them this year…but of course, I will add ancho or chipotle powder and perhaps, if I go back down South this year, deep fry them.
Yes, I know, my modifications take most of the ‘healthier’ and some of the romance out of these recipes, but then, what can I say? The way to a man’s heart is (if you don’t have a pitchfork) through his stomach.
And I prefer treats that fight back.
