Someone asked on the Veggie board for Valentine's Day dinner suggestions. Here's my reply:
If I were making a Valentine's Day dinner I would definitely consider Red Stuff. (aka Strawberry Frozen Fruit Dessert, from The McDougall Program. John A. McDougall, M.D., 1990, p. 181)
This is a non-fat, non-dairy, no sugar added frozen dessert that is sweet, smooth, creamy...heavenly!
First make sure you have a heavy-duty blender. I've burned out two, neither of them mine, making this. I use a Vita-Mix; a K-Tech would also work.
1.5 cups crushed pineapple with juice, chilled
3 bananas, peeled and frozen (at least 24 hours)
1 lb frozen strawberries, unsweetened
Place pineapple with juice in blender container. Replace the lid, remove the plug that lets you drop stuff in. Blend, adding bananas (in chunks) and strawberries, just until smooth. Serve immediately for best texture, or freeze. If frozen longer than 30 minutes let it sit out for a few minutes before serving.
I have non-veg friends whose *kids* ask me to make this!
