{Raw, Vegan} Berry Sorbet

The most beautiful thing about raw foods (in my opinion) is the simplicity. Take banana ice cream, for example. 1) frozen bananas 2) blend 3) ice cream! Add in some vanilla, a dash of sea salt, and maybe some cacao, and you have a treat that rivals sugary store-bought version – but without the added dairy, fat, and refined sugars!

Live foods are also incredibly beautiful – and that’s a great thing! Colors (not fake artifiical ones!) make us more receptive and tempted to eat foods because that means they are bursting with phyto-nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. It just makes sense, and darn – it’s good to eat!

This recipe came during a moment of inspiration – and a heat wave. I understand it’s winter back home, but down here in Costa Rica temperatures are heating up. It can get hot!

Raw sorbet is so yummy, creamy, and a delicious treat that is so good for your body. Enjoy the anti-oxidants, natural sweetness of berries and banana, and relish being so good to yourself!

Also — IMPORTANT NOTE —

The blog Mandy Blooms Raw will be shutting down. As you may have noticed, all recipes and archives are now on my website Bloom for Life. This is to simplify my online presence and also allow the opportunity to post cooked vegan recipes for optimal living as well.

While I don’t consume cooked foods (pretty darn rare), I believe wholesome, nourishing fare can be cooked, and for many people it’s much more accessible in the transitional phase.
