Tofu Steak

I found this recipe for Tofu Steak on Pinterest, but tracked it back to this It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken, a vegan recipe blog.  I always want to cook with tofu because it’s healthy, but tastes quite bland and once you open a packet it goes off within days.  This was a bit of a trial, but here’s what I did.

Healthy(er) Vegan Banana Chocolate Ice Cream

Banana Ice CreamI found this recipe on a vegan you tube channel Fab Lunch for home made ice cream made from frozen banana.

I chopped up some brown banana and put it in the freezer overnight.  The next day I blended it with cocoa powder and agave nectar.

It creates a healthier version of ice cream, that still tastes yummy.
