Guilt-Free Almond-Banana “Ice Cream” (Dairy Free)

For many of us, ridding ourselves from sugar cravings can be a daunting task. Nearly all the foods we eat on a regular basis contain sugar, and 74% of those foods contain added sugar. In the last 20 years, the amount of sugar consumed by Americans has soared from 26lbs to a whopping 150lbs. I think it’s safe to say that the sugar industry will undoubtedly go down in history as the single biggest threat to the human population.

Cutting a vast amount of sugar (especially refined sugar) out off your diet will not only help you burn fat, but it will also help slow down the aging process of your cells. Who doesn’t want to live a longer, healthier life? That being said, here is a healthy alternative to a sugary dessert.

Ingredients:

  1. One or two very ripe frozen organic bananas
  2. Organic shredded coconut
  3. 1 tsp. organic ground cinnamon
  4. Half cup of raw organic almonds

Directions:

  1. Slice frozen banana into chunks and place in a high-power blender or food processor.
  2. Add about 1-2 tablespoons of shredded coconut.
  3. Add 1 tsp. of ground cinnamon (or use as a topping).
  4. Add a half cup of raw organic almonds
  5. Blend until the consistency reminds you of soft-serve ice cream.
  6. Enjoy!

You may add any toppings of your choice (keep it healthy, of course). I like to top mine with organic cacao nibs and a small drizzle of raw organic honey. I’ve also tried adding blueberries to the ingredients, and the results were delicious. I hope this helps you all steer clear of sugary death treats!

Aloha Natural Newsers!


My name is Michael Swiderski and I am a very recent citizen of Hawaii. I am a certified personal trainer and I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology with a concentration in Health Science. My passion and my career revolve around three subjects: Physical Fitness, Nutrition, and Medicine. By medicine, of course I am speaking of natural healing as I am the NoMDdoctor. Rather than using microscopes, text books, and the forced influence of large pharma, I conduct my research with the use of one thing…me! I study topics that hold great meaning to my life, and I am extremely diligent and devoted to my work.

My outlook on life is a bit unconventional to say the least. Shortly after I was diagnosed with the auto-immune disease known as Narcolepsy, my mindset about the meaning of life was severely altered. Things that once held great importance in my life quickly fell by the wayside. However, when certain doors close, others will open…and that they did.

Narcolepsy completely turned my world upside down and inside out. It successfully ended my career in Biotechnology, and ruined many close relationships. Experiencing side effects from Narcolepsy is one thing, but adding in the side effects from pharmaceutical stimulants is a whole other ballgame. I was constantly in pain, irritable, stressed, depressed, exhausted, jittery, anxious, etc. The list goes on, but you get the idea.

The day soon came where I hit rock bottom with this illness and the fake “treatment” that was prescribed to me. I was through with trusting the so-called “medical professionals”. Therefore, I finally decided to make use of my free will, and I began my own research on narcolepsy. It took me two years to get where I’m at today, and I am proud to say that no more do I rely on pharmaceutical drugs to manage the side effects of Narcolepsy. I am here to tell my story of freedom, as well as reveal all my findings along the way. Stay tuned, you just might learn something…
