Frozen Monkey Bars (AIP/Paleo)

For the longest time, I’ve been dreaming of a frozen, dairy-free dessert that doesn’t have coconut milk in it. Like many of you, I have found that coconut and I are better left apart. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I’ve seen people making “n’icecream” from bananas, so I thought I’d give it a whirl!

My friends at Singing Dog Vanilla asked me to create some summertime recipes, so I figured that this was now my chance. Yay! (I just love it when serendipity appears!)

To make Frozen Monkey Bars, simply bake the crumble crust, let it cool, whirl some stuff in a blender, pour it in and freeze. That’s it!

That drizzle though…

The particulars

You will need some equipment for this recipe, like a good blender. This is the one I use. It’s not fancy, but it is an absolute workhorse! You’ll also need a food processor for the crumble crust.

There are three ingredients that you might consider “specialty,” unless you’ve been on a healing diet for a while. You’ll need some tigernut flour for the crust. If you are avoiding chocolate, you’ll need carob powder. And of course, alcohol-free vanilla.

Other than that, you’re set!

Oh. I should probably mention something. If you want to heal your body, please be mindful of your sugar intake, K? I care about you. Keep them treats to a minimum. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m wishing you great love and deep healing!
