vegan, gluten-free 

4 firm bananas, peeled, cut lengthwise

1/3 cup coconut sugar

3 tbsp vegan butter

1/3 cup dark rum

raw cinnamon swirl ice cream

Preheat grill to medium high. Once heated, place bananas on oiled grill. Sear for 4-6 minutes then flip and repeat. Remove bananas from the grill and set aside. Meanwhile, in a large saute pan over low heat, combine coconut sugar and vegan butter. Stir until sugar dissolved. Add rum, and if sauce is hot enough, it will flame on its own. Otherwise, tilt pan away from you until it catches. Continue cooking until flame dies out. Add bananas and cook 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Serve with a scoop of raw cinnamon swirl ice cream.


1 cup of raw cashews (soaked for 24 hours)

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup almond milk

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 cup water

Himalayan sea salt


3 tbsp maple syrup

1 tsp cinnamon

Blend all ingredients (except cinnamon swirl) in a high-speed blender. Mix until smooth. Pour into ice cream maker or large glass container. In a separate small bowl, combine maple syrup and cinnamon. Pour cinnamon swirl into ice cream mixture and stir. If using ice cream maker, follow manufacturer’s instructions for freezing. Otherwise keep the container in the freezer with lid on, occasionally stirring until frozen.
