Begin by peeling and freezing ripe plantain slices.  See ripe plantain.  We suggest using one or two plantains to make each serving.

When the plantain slices are frozen, place them in a high speed blender, such as a Vita-Mix.  Add about 4 pitted dates per the equivalent of each whole plantain.

Cover blender and run it at high speed, using the tamper to make sure that all the plantain slices and dates are "creamed" together.

Spoon out into serving bowls.  If you need to make more than one batch, place the bowls of plantain cream in the freezer until all the other batches of plantain cream are prepared.


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-30)
