Healthy ice-cream shop in LA

We’ve been driving past this little ice-cream shop called Kippy’s a hundred times now and I’ve been wanting to try it out for a while. This weekend we made the trip (only 5 minutes from our apartment 🙂 ). The ice cream was really good and is made of only homemade raw coconut cream, coconut water, raw honey and fresh organic fruit. The perfect treat that you can actually feel good about eating 🙂  It’s all organic, raw, fresh and dairy free!

Check it out at 326 Lincoln Blvd. Venice, CA 90291

healthy banana bread

What you need:

3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup almond flour
1 tsp pure vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cardamom
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup mashed bananas (about 4 bananas)
2 tbs chia seeds (used as a substitute for egg)
2 tbs coconut oil (melted)
1/3 cup maple syrup (or brown sugar, other sweetener or honey)
1/2 cup almond milk (or other milk if preferred)

1. Preheat oven to 350 ˚F or 175 ˚C. Grease a nonstick bread pan with coconut oil or other oil.
2. Let the chia seeds sit in the milk for a little (about 10 min) to make the egg substitute. Mix the dry and wet ingredients in two separate bowls. Then add them together util it’s just mixed.
3. Pour it into the bread pan and let it bake for about 50 min – 60 min. (Check after 50 min).
4. Let it cool on a cooling rack and wrap it tightly with foil to keep it nice and moist.

Tastes really good toasted with some butter/almond butter, by itself, or for breakfast together with some greek yoghurt and berries 🙂
