Sending emails. Sending “professional” emails. Not that I send many, but on occasion I can muster up some non-offensive words to group together and send off to clients. Did you know…. when you save email addresses in your “address book” the name you use to identify the person, can actually be SEEN by the person you send it to? I did learn this sometime ago. Why did “girl with the crazy hair” and “super sexy smile man” not email me back….? I can only imagine, but it’s okay to embarrass oneself- in personal life.
However, today I received an email, at work, addressed to: “short girl with the blonde hair in accounting”. Really?! Is that the impression that I make? Blurgh!! “Girl with spinach in her teeth” is far more endearing, or at least impressionable. But no, I am SGWBHIA, and FYI- 5 ft 7″ is borderline tall.
So, to commemorate this slightly offensive, email extravaganza, I had ice cream for dinner. Delicious homemade ice cream and I named it rightfully so!
BEAUTIFUL TALL ELEGANT AND DELIGHTFUL TO LOOK AT BANANA COCOA ICE CREAM
3 Frozen Bananas
1/4 -1/2 cup light coconut milk (or any type of milk)
2.5 tbsp cocoa powder
Sweetener to taste (not usually necessary, but perhaps a drizzle of maple syrup)
3 tbsp Hemp Hearts (optional, good for a nutritional boost)
Shredded coconut and vegan chocolate chips to top
Add frozen bananas and coconut milk to blender/food processor. Slice your bananas before freezing as this makes them easier to blend. Be patient with your blender, as this will take 5 to 7 minutes of blending and stirring. Do resist the urge to add too much liquid(unless there is black smoke coming from your blender), or this will turn into a milk shake rather than an ice cream- though equally delightful. Once your bananas and milk begin to resemble soft serve immediately add your cocoa powder, sweetener, and hemp hearts. Blend for 30 seconds- until thoroughly combined. Place in dishes and top with coconut, chocolate chips and kind words.
Now you see it (this is bowl number 2- as in my second serving so it was a little melted)
Now you don’t
