Getting your 2 year old to like healthy vegan desserts: Pistachio Sorbet-Ice-Cream

Homemade Vegan Pistachio Sorbet


Below is my 2 year old enjoying the results of the creation. It shows that you can get children to like ‘not so sweet things’ at an early age. Recipe to follow.


This is best pistachio sorbet sweetened with pitted dates with a little raw vanilla. Recipe:

Gotta a Vitamix blender (or something comparable?) Mix 1/2 cup of raw pistachios, 3 pitted dates (you can always add more if you like it sweeter), 1/2 tsp of raw vanilla powder, 1/2 tbsp of soy lecithin, 1/8 tsp of gum Arabic (optional) and 2 cups of water. Blend until smooth, chill in the fridge for an hour, then throw in the ice cream maker.

I just wanted to say that if my work has benefited you, or you have enjoyed watching my critical race scholarship and/or health advice over the past few years, I’m wondering if you can return a favor. My fellowship to pursue critical race and critical vegan studies at the doctoral level was not renewed for 2011-2012, through University of California, Davis. I would like to finish my PhD and need some help. I know the goal may seem overwhelming, but I have about a combined support network/friends/followers of 1000 people (through Facebook, blog subscribers, and Twitter followers). If you could spare $10 to $25 a piece, then this goal could be met I think.
