heavenly coconut ICE-CREAM

I love when I have something beautiful to share. And now I have:)
Last night it was "girls evening".
I was with my daughters and the female cat = 5 girls.
We were recycling old cloths - making new blouse out of old one + a pair of socks.... and other rather "glimmering" things:) When you make " girls evening" you HAVE to have something really tempting. Something that gives you water in the mouth, makes your stomach feel very exciting and your face shine like the SUN.
This is just one of the "girls evening" law of live.
So I made our favorite:
coconut ice-cream
1 1/2 c cashews, soaked 2-4 hrs
the meat from 1 young coconut

3/4 c agave nectar

1/2 c coconut flakes
1 c coconut water
1 Tsp vanilla powder
1/2 c coconut oil
blend all ingredients in blender (vita-mix) until smooth. pour into some beautiful molds and into the freezer.

chocolate sauce
1/2 c coconut oil
1/2 c cocoa powder
1/4 c agave nectar
1 Tbsp lucuma
1 Tsp maca
1/2 Tsp vanilla powder
blend all together in a bowl and pour over the ICE-CREAM
promise your self to enjoyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

love you all

Crowberries are one of the Icelandic "fruits".
Well I know it´s a berry but in a land where you have trouble growing apples...... then those little things are like "diamonds" for us "vikings"..... They grow wild all around the country. Those small black berries are filled with and-oxidants, iron, vitamin C - just packed with nutrients. When I was young my parents always went berry picking in august. Always. And today I go with my girls. We make some yummie picnic out of it as well - food always taste better in the nature. It is so precious moments with my girls, having berry blue faces, most of the berries goes to their mouth...... and the smile is black/blue. :)
I will share some of our recipes.

more blueberries recipe - Kids favorites

I just love to make food for kids :) or have them making food with me. I have this 9 years old friend who some times calls and ask if she can come over and help me in the kitchen.
She specially loves my high speed blender. She puts all kind of fruits
and nuts + water and makes the most delicious smoothies.

We went berry picking the other day and when we arrived back home she asked if we could play with the blender and the blueberries. And so we did. We made this delicious blueberries smoothie out of cashews and some freshly picked blueberries. After drinking 2 glasses she was filled :)
But there was some smoothie left and that we put in some really handy ice cream molds.

This ice cream is just brilliant as breakfast or as a small meal. My 14 years daughter and her friends just loves those after working out or..........
