Here's your fun-filled, short and easy to read ezine full of raw food fun! Compliments of Raw Food Weight Loss Guide!

Before you freeze bananas, peel them and cut them into half inch thick discs. Then line a lidded glass bowl with the discs, placing a sheet of waxed paper between the layers so the bananas do not touch each other. Then put lid on glass bowl and store in freezer. They will be easier to use this way than big solid bananas all frozen together.

If you have a dehydrator, you can make fruit “roll-ups” by blending ripe bananas and pouring them onto dehydrator teflex sheets and dehydrate until solid, but flexible. Try blending them with other fruits for different flavors, like apple or apricot.

Just because you are eating healthy doesn't mean you have to give up desserts like ice cream. Just learn healthier ways of making it! As promised in the last newsletter, here is how you can make a delicious raw ice cream out of frozen bananas!


3 or 4 frozen bananas

Put frozen banana slices in the food processor and process until smooth like soft serve ice cream. Add nuts or cacao beans or other fruit, like frozen strawberries. Drizzle with a caramel sauce by blending dates with just enough water to make them like caramel. Top with chopped nuts. Mmmmm!!!

Since we have gone bananas with this newsletter, you might as well know a little more about them. They contain about 110 calories each, 4 percent of calories from protein, 93 percent of calories from carbohydrates, 3 percent of calories from fat, they are 75 percent water and are around 53 on the glycemic index. They are fully ripe when they are lightly freckled with little brown spots on the yellow peel.
