You'll love this healthy Vegan Cinnamon Ice Cream! It's easy to make with whipped frozen bananas and warming ground cinnamon.
I've served this delicious Vegan Cinnamon Ice Cream with.... maple roasted radishes!
Trust me, it really works.
The peppery radishes taste divine roasted with sweet maple syrup.
Super-healthy vegan banana ice cream with a warm pinch of cinnamon, topped with sliced radishes drizzled with maple syrup and roasted. They get sweeter, milder and absolutely magical.
How about fresh radishes dipped in butter and salt and eaten in the garden on a warm day?
The dark pink, the white crispy interior, pinching off the little root tail between thumb and forefinger.
A peppery, salty, buttery snack that evokes freshness and lazy pleasure. Sometimes there is true beauty in simplicity: the children laughing together, a perfectly crafted final sentence in a beloved book, a phone call with words of love. Radishes.
But what else to do with radishes? Dessert. Ice cream.
This dessert couldn't be easier to make.
Which is good because life is rather hectic at the moment.
There are goodbyes to be said. Too many. Promises of staying in touch. Too few hellos. There are boxes to pack and memories to wrap. Cupboards to clean and papers to sign. There is much worrying to be done. Excitement to be had.
So I leave you with a simple dessert. A healthy, sugar-free, gluten-free, vegan dessert. A portion of fruit, a portion of veg, a portion of magic.
