Finally..

Stogo

Stogo

made it to Stogo in the East Village. It’s been a place I’ve wanted to check out since learning about the organic, dairy-free ice cream joint.  They have a ton of delicious flavors (like the combo I got: Salted Caramel Pecan and Mexican Chocolate) – all of which are made from scratch using premium ingredients and leaving out stuff like refined sugars, preservatives, artificial flavors, gluten, or animal products. Even their cups and utensils are made from sustainable, biodegradable materials.  Does dessert get any better?

good, wholesome ingredients. Caveman Bakery, a New York based business is all about using ingredients that our ancestors had access to,  not food that’s been processed or stuff that we can’t pronounce, just real food.  The result is Caveman Cookies, a healthier alternative to a lot of the options out there, that are available in three flavors: Original, Tropical or Alpine. They are made from 100% natural ingredients like honey, almond meal walnuts, raisins, ginger, and macadamia nuts.  Each cookie has less than 75 calories and they’re gluten-free. Did we just come  across a healthy dessert folks?

haven’t heard of Veggie Wedgie, consider this your introduction. I have been minorly obsessed since coming across the blog – absolutely amazing photos and recipes with a healthy twist, but still totally delicous. I did a post not too long ago on the new (well, new to me) non-dairy ice cream –  chocolate-banana ice cream.   Veggie Wedgie  just made a good thing even better by sharing her recipe for Banana Ice Cream Sandwiches. They are light, dairy free and just might be the dessert of the season. Check out the recipe!

Chocolate-Banana Ice Cream

So easy..

Chocolate-Banana Ice Cream

Chocolate-Banana Ice Cream

why not whip this up? It’s ICE CREAM without the cream and is made from 1 ingredient (well, maybe 2 or 3 – depending on how creative you want to be). Rumor has it, this banana-based ice cream is super delicious, nutritious and the ideal dessert for summertime! I’ve seen several variations since being introduced to the concept – some with vanilla (2 teaspoons to be exact), brown sugar & cinnamon – no fancy machine required, so the options really are endless. Here’s one with cocoa from hilaroux. One, two, three – it’s that easy!

1) Freeze a banana
2) Combine with 2 tbsp cocoa powder
3) Blend until smooth and creamy.
