Raw Brownies n' Ice Cream.

When my husband and I changed our diets 8 years ago, we ate 95% raw food for the first year. In my pile o' recipes...I still have several of the 'thumbs up' ones from clear back then. The other night, I busted this brownie one out that I had received from a friend. It is still as tasty as we remember.

This ice cream is nothin' but frozen bananas run through the Champion Juicer with the blank cover on. Go ahead and love on my mom's avocado green juicer, she's and oldie but a... beauty.

Jan's Brownies
1 cup dates, soaked 3 hours and chopped {save soak water}

1 cup raw tahini {sesame seed butter}
1 cup raw almond butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup date soak water or 1/2 c. fresh squeezed orange juice

I want to try those, I practically cook my brownies so little time anyway because I like goey! Thanks, and that great green machine...that is awesome, and enviable too! Icecream out of bananas. Not a bad set up. Thanks for your comment over at Farmgirl! You are so sweet, seriously!

Emily we made these for family night and they were pretty dern good. Looking at the pic again it looks like you may not blend the walnuts in in the processor, is that right? We'll have to try that next time. But I even got some frozen for after I have the baby.
