This video starts with “I can’t believe I’m sharing my secret”, but this post should start with “I can’t believe it’s taken me so damn long to post this!” Not exactly a timely treat in the middle of December.¬†There’s no gingerbread or ubiquitous pumpkin. And it’s frozen.

But hey, if you have a need to curb that sweet tooth amidst all your holiday parties, or you happen to live in a place where the sun warms the air (and your face) to above freezing, then this is for you! And if not, come back next July.

Here it is, a tribute to the dessert-turned-breakfast that I fell in love with on a trip to Hawaii with one of the greatest friends I’ve ever met.

Recipe:
One frozen packet acai puree
One banana
That’s it. Blend and put in your ice cream maker with a splash of water for the best possible outcome.

Other ideas to mix in:
Milk of choice (just a splash), nut butter of choice
Topping ideas:
Fresh fruit, hemp hearts, chopped nuts, unsweetened coconut, honey or maple syrup, cacao nibs, carob chips…the possibilities are endless. Get crazy with your bad self!
