    That shouldn't even count as candy.

    ^^It's called the Candy Store. It's one of the dessert samplers from a restaurant called Holstein's at the Cosmopolitan resort in Las Vegas. Very unique, very different and incredibly tasty. One of the samples not shown is when they dip their meringue in liquid nitrogen. When you taste it, you feel the coldness and then blow smoke from your mouth and nose. I should have taken a pic!

    Banana Ice Cream using only bananas (and whatever other ingredient you may want!!!


    I'm not a fan of Peanut Butter on anything other than a PBJ, but I can't have PB anyway as I'm going paleo in the next couple days, which is why this "ice cream" is so spectacular!!! Maybe with some chunked strawberries folded in!!!!

    http://www.twopeasandtheirpod.com/two-ingredient-banana-peanut-butter-ice-cream/

    Two-Ingredient Banana Peanut Butter Ice Cream
    Yield: Serves 4
    ingredients:
    4 large very ripe bananas
    2 tablespoons peanut butter

    directions:
    1. Peel bananas and slice into 1/2 inch discs. Arrange banana slices in a single layer on a large plate or baking sheet. Freeze for 1-2 hours.

    2. Place the banana slices in a food processor or powerful blender. Puree banana slices, scraping down the bowl as needed. Puree until the mixture is creamy and smooth. Add the peanut butter and puree to combine. Serve immediately for soft-serve ice cream consistency. If you prefer harder ice cream, place in the freezer for a few hours and then serve.

    *Note-if you have a hard time creating a creamy consistency, you can add 1-2 tablespoons of milk to help puree the banana slices. Make sure you use a powerful food processor or blender!

    Paleo Mug Cake, easy to make, tastes just like chocolate decadence, no refined sugar

    IMGblog_5979.jpg

    What you will need:
    3 tbs of almond meal
    3 tbs of cocoa powder
    2 tbs of honey
    1 tsp of vanilla extract
    1 egg
    a few dashes of salt
    a few (5) dashes of cinnamon. Sorry I suck and you can yell at me in the comment section but I did not measure this out exactly.
    *Variation- I am a little embarrassed to say that I made two of these in one night (hey wine makes you hungry) and the second batch was made with 2 tbs of cocoa powder and 1 tbs of sunflower seed butter. SO good too!

    Directions:
    Mix all of the ingredients together in a microwave safe mug.
    Microwave for 2 minutes.
    Enjoy!

    Yes, exactly! It was quite an experience and I recommend the restaurant to anyone visiting Vegas. Plus, their burgers and ahi tuna sliders were awesome! icon_smile.gif

    Is it kinda fluffy or is it really dense? There's no egg so I'd imagine it was kinda dense right?
