If you’d ask me what my favorite fruit is, the first fruit to pop into my mind wouldn’t be bananas. However, the more I think about it, the more I feel a bit sheepish for neglecting this super food. I eat bananas EVERY DAY. In fact, bananas are probably the only fruit or veggie that I eat consistently on a daily basis.

Now that I’ve been vegan for four years, I’ve learned a few vital tidbits of information. For instance, did you know that you can make ice cream with nothing but a frozen banana? I KNOW. MINDBLOWING. It’s true, and it actually works, and best of all, it’s very tasty. Add a bit of cocoa powder, chocolate chips, and some peanut butter and you have yourself a delicious, creamy, frozen treat!
