Hey guys. Have you ever made frozen fruit bars? If you are craving for ice cream, but do not like the idea of consuming tons of sugar, you should definitively give these ones a try. Such a healthy alternative. Any kind of fruit works, you can also substitute almonds with cashews, walnuts or else. Be creative! My summer basically consists of fruit and ice cream made of fruit. I am doing an internship right now, which I really love. And what I love even more is to come home and have some cold homemade ice cream awaiting me. The coconut oil will become solid once you freeze it, it is one of the main ingredients for – let’s call it- raw vegan dessert art. I added some sugar because kiwis are not very sweet as you know. So for instance if you want to replace kiwi with mango you may not need extra sugar but you should definitely add some cardamom, so delicious.
