Raw Ice Cream. Made out of three fruits. And no, it is not a sorbet. This piece of art is creamy, icy, sweet, and believe it or not, medicinal. It will open the gates for those wonderful, bliss inducing endorphins, without putting your cells into a debt. Au contraire, this Raw Gelato will nourish you on all levels. It is both good to you and for you. Great for Iftar. As a dessert or even as the main course. Best if shared (if you can).
