Orange Ginger Coconut Frozen Pudding Dessert
A dairy-free ice cream substitute

despud-3flav.jpg (685717 bytes)Ingredients

1-1/2 cups Water
15 Dates, pitted, dried

5 Bananas, peeled
12-oz Orange Juice, frozen concentrate
1 tsp. Guar Gum, powdered
1 tbsp. Ginger, powdered
1/8 tsp. Cayenne Pepper, powder (optional)
1 cup Coconut, shredded, unsweetened


Place all the ingredients, except the coconut, into the container of a High Powered Blender (Vita-Mix type) in the order listed above.  Install the cover and insert the "tamper/mixing stick" (make sure it's the one supplied by the manufacturer, and that it cannot reach the blades).  Start the blender at slow speed and quickly increase to the highest speed, in stages.  Assist the mixing as necessary with the "tamper/mixing stick".  Remove the "stick" and allow the mixer to suck air into the vortex.  When the mixture has become very thick, stop the mixer. 

Add the shredded coconut, start the mixer on slow to medium and work the coconut into the mixture with the aid of the "tamper/mixer stick". When the coconut is uniformly distributed, stop the mixer. Pour into 4-oz. plastic cups with lids (Dixie type), or into "ice-cream-on-a-stick" molds.  Place in freezer.  When solid, your treat is ready to enjoy.

For a special treat, try mixing two different flavors of frozen desserts together.  Pictured to the left is the peanut butter - carob (left), the orange ginger coconut (right), and the combination (center). 

To make this particular combination, fill the cup 1/2 full with the orange ginger coconut frozen dessert and slowly pour the peanut butter carob into the center until the cup is filled.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live! (d-3)
