Bonkers over Bananas

When it’s time for dessert, how do you choose between two favorite banana recipes? You don’t! Instead, we combine them—think Bananas Foster meets a banana split. Rather than bruleeing the fruit in a sauce made from butter, sugar, and cream, we use coconut oil and coconut sugar. A homemade chocolate sauce and crunchy super food toppings like hemp seeds and cacao nibs round out this satisfying treat.

This Banana Brûlée requires no torch or special tools, only a few ingredients and hardly any time. Think Banana Foster meets Banana Split!

  4. Add coconut oil to a nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. When melted, add coconut sugar; stir. Add water and continue stirring until sugar has melted. Add the bananas cut-side down. Cook until golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes, then flip and brown the other side for an additional 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. To assemble, lay 2 banana slices in a shallow bowl, cut side up. Top with 2 scoops of ice cream, then drizzle with chocolate sauce, and sprinkle with cacao nibs and hemp seeds. Repeat with one more bowl.

    Berry Mango Sorbet (video)

    Keep the taste of summer alive with this elegant  yet simple Berry Mango Sorbet.  Making your own grain-free and dairy-free desserts can be a daunting task, especially when you are new to the Paleo way of life, but this strawberry mango sorbet is so easy to make that there is no way to go wrong.

    Exactly what is Sorbet and isn’t it the same as sherbet? 

    Sorbet is a pure frozen delight, containing just fruit and sugar, while sherbet is halfway between sorbet and ice cream (it contains a bit of dairy to make it smoother).  If you prefer your sorbet a wee bit creamier, think sherbet, add just a dash of coconut or almond milk and let the flavors meld together.
