Chocolate Cardamom Nice Cream Recipe

Apr 03, 2022

This decadent chocolate cardamom nice cream is a dairy-free vegan dessert that nourishes and satisfies the body and soul. Rather than a treat, nice cream is just a simple staple in my life now – blended frozen bananas, paired with your favorite toppings - you get a delicious, blizzard style meal without paying for the torture, torment and awful health effects of dairy.

Would you believe me if I told you that before a simple lifestyle of fruits and veggies I couldn’t even eat bananas? I despised the texture of them and could only tolerate them if they were snuck into something - blended and cold and rare. I held this staunch banana experience and opinion my entire life. That’s the power of memory. The automaticity machinery of the human psyche.

Then something magical happened. In the process of removing all the hyper addictive, mucous forming (all animal products + the sticky gluey dairy desserts + processed starches) products from my mouth I was called to finally eat, and enjoy eating, the nanas.

I credit this new beginning with bananas, akin to my new beginnings with many other life experiences, to neurogenesis. New neurons formed in my brain from a lifestyle (high fruit / raw vegan) that allowed my body to heal. In turn, learning, remembering, experiencing things anew.

It’s obvious to me that as my neuro/cognitive related symptoms began healing I began to experience and see the world differently. I lump my banana brain barrier in here. Now I eat bananas straight out the peel (unheard of!) and eat decadent nice cream like it’s my job. Without cringe.

The next time you express an archaic barrier to certain foods or fruits that you grew up hating or not tolerating, take heart that none of that may matter anymore when you put in the work to truly heal the body. Magical personal behavior change is no longer some weird miracle. It’s just normal.

I hope you enjoy this easy-peasy recipe!
