How Can Banana Ice Cream with Almonds Make You Feel Great?
Creamy, smooth and luscious, banana ice cream with almond milk helps rehydrate your body. Bananas are sweet and restore electrolytes on hot summer days. Almond butter provides some heartiness that helps the body prepare for fall. Banana & Almond ice-cream is a perfect way to help your kids celebrate summer. It is completely vegan, and can be made completely raw depending on the almond milk you use.
Prepare for Late Summer DrynessThere's nothing like the feeling of walking out of your house and catching that first hint of fall in the air. The body instinctively knows that change is happening. When the temperatures begin to drop in early August, the body prepares for fall by insulating the skin with fats. As fats are removed from circulation, the blood quickly dries out, which also dries out the skin and the bowels. To rebuild fats and sweeten up the blood, your body will crave heartier, fattier, and sweeter foods than in June or July. Early morning pancakes or homemade zucchini bread are appealing this time of year. You might find yourself pulling your cookbooks off the shelf and looking up recipes for some of your favorite fall and winter recipes. Creamy Banana & Almond Ice Cream, rich in electrolytes, healthy fats and proteins, will help you feel hydrated and nourished as summer turns to fall.
Counter Balancing Cold FoodsAyurveda generally recommends against cold foods. Cold food shocks the stomach and reduces blood flow to digestion. Food loses some of its nutritional value when frozen. Cinnamon keeps digestion warm while the bananas are melting. A dash of cardamom can also make it more warming and tasty. If it still feels too cold in your tummy, consider adding honey and a dash of black pepper.
