1 tbsp coconut sugar.
2 tbsp cocoa powder.
1 cup soya milk.
1 tbsp oil.
Drizzle of vanilla.
1 mashed banana.
Mix all dry then add the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly. Pour mixture into a hot pan and flip when bubbles appear on the mixture. There’s no need to add oil to the pan as there is oil in the mixture. Enjoy! 🍌
BALTIMORE – Inside a small, unassuming warehouse in a quiet neighborhood nestled near the outskirts of Baltimore, Maryland, a small group of activists are busy cooking, shuffling about and giving marching orders as veggies simmer on a stove and potatoes bake in an oven. Though they’re used to the hustle and bustle of cooking massive amounts of food, the past two weeks have taken a more urgent tone.
As protests enveloped the city following the death 25-year-old Freddie Gray, whose spine was severed while in police custody, the organization Baltimore Free Farm immediately began working around the clock to feed hungry demonstrators.
Ingredients needed: 2 ¼ cup cashew milk, frozen 1 ½ cup cashews ½ cup water ½ cup blueberries ¼ cup coconut cream 2 tbsp ube powder (purple yam that has been grated and dehydrated into a powder) 1 frozen banana 1 tbsp coconut oil 1 tsp vanilla extract Borage flowers (to garnish)
Preparation: Add cashews and water in food processor and blend until smooth. Add banana and cashew milk and blend until smooth. I froze the cashew milk beforehand so that it would have a thicker texture. Add vanilla extract, coconut oil, ube powder, and blueberries. Blend until the mixture turns a light purple tint. Ready to serve. If you would like your ice cream to be more solid, store it in the freezer for several hours or as needed. I poured mine into a cake pop pan and left it in the freezer overnight. In the morning, I left it out for 10 minutes, scooped it out into a bowl, and garnished with borage.
What is Ube? Ube is a root vegetable that is native to the Philippines. It is a bright purple color, and its relatives are taro and the Okinawa sweet potato. It is sometimes referred to as “purple yam.” In Filipino culture, ube is often used to make sweets and desserts. Ube has been around for many millennia and has been used throughout time as a laxative, treatment for fevers, hemorrhoids, gonorrhea, leprosy, and tumors, and a way to rid parasitic worms from the body.
Is there a reason Whole Foods is feeding the damn national guard?! Schools are closed and so many kids are probably hungry as a result of that and they go out and feed grown ass men and women that have a job?!
You have got to be shittin me?!
The whole situation in Baltimore is just hard to stomach right now.
