Frugan: Chocolate-Orange-Banana-Pecan Ice Cream



I must be crazy! It's freezing here yet I keep drinking green smoothies and eating cold foods! I made this delicious chocolate ice cream out of my Chocolate Hummus.

I took 1/2 c hummus, a frozen banana a tiny bit of orange zest and nutmeg. I chopped about a T of pecans and stirred it in. I used white beans in this batch. So good!

Do you know what is totally delicious? My Chickepa Salad and raw slaw all wrapped up in my gluten free yeasted flatbread! 

I've made one of the best batches of BBQ sauce yesterday. I took a cup of my Sugar Free Ketchup and mixed it with a cup of my Salsa, 1 t liquid smoke and 2 T dijon. I have some seitan marinating in it as we speak.



My Siracha test didn't measure up to my standards. I made a delicious hot sauce, but it didn't come close in texture to Siracha. I won't give up though! I think I may need to use actual sugar in that recipe instead of stevia? We'll see. I'll keep working on it.
