You are going to love this fruit based soft serve. Why even eat dairy? This stuff is amazing and basically four ingredients. The recipe is another winner from Medical Medium.

Apples provide living water to support the liver’s hydration capabilities, it stores the water and then releases it back into the bloodstream when dehydration or dirty blood syndrome occurs. Bananas are antibacterial, anti-yeast, and antifungal. Bananas also improve the liver’s ability to absorb nutrients. Dates have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-tumor properties. They are great for colon health. Someone diabetic told me if their sugar goes too low, they will eat a date.

Soft Serve Swirl
1 apple, diced and frozen
1 banana, frozen
2 to 3 medjool dates, pitted
1 teaspoon alcohol-free vanilla extract or 1/4 teaspoon vanilla bean powder (optional)
2 to 3 tablespoons water, if needed to blend

I cut up an apple and banana and freeze it for the week I think I’ll eat the dessert. I put all the ingredients in my Vitamix. Or you can use a food processor and blend until smooth. I use alcohol based vanilla extract. I don’t know if that changes the benefits for the liver. The first time I started out with one tablespoon of water and added a second because it was a warm day. The second time I used all three tablespoons of water. And last time I used 6 tablespoons of water. Serve immediately. It makes 1 serving, but sometimes I share a scoop.

Food for thought:
Huntington Beach protested keeping their beaches open—fighting a directive from Governor Gavin Newsom to close the beaches. San Diego protested the governor’s restrictions in regard to Covid-19. On May 1st, Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti said, “In terms of protests and stuff, look I totally respect that. I’m frustrated and I want things to open. There are two or three things to remember. One we have to follow public health advice. . .” Garcetti did go on to say the reopening of L.A.’s date on May 15th could change. And doesn’t the mayor sound “totally” SoCal?

I also heard from a small farmer in Northern California that she is selling more produce than ever. The pandemic has actually benefitted small farms because people are concerned about the food chain and food safety.
