RECIPE: banana ice cream with rawnola

My main goal with this post is to bring YOU this same bliss I experienced …  The problem is that many of you may not have a Vitamix. Fear not! There is a neat little gadget that I’ve seen and I think it’s the perfect solution for many of you! If my Vitamix keeps acting funky I may invest in one of these guys. It’s a Yonanas machine and you can take any frozen fruit and turn it into ice cream. How cool is that?? Yes, I realize that I become absurdly excited over kitchen gadgets ..
As for this recipe, I think you will love it. I make a large batch of rawnola and store it in the fridge so I can munch on it throughout the week. I’m not particularly creative with this recipe, actually, as I got it from Loni Jane (my idol). It’s simple, it’s delicious, it’s filling, it’s low in fat, it’s perfect after a beach day .. it’s really just everything in one bowl. I like to add fresh fruit to my ice cream, as well, and take my time eating it.
