Raw Fruits of Summer Ice Cream Sundae

What do you do when you have 4 delicious raw vegan ice creams just waiting to be eaten, but can't decide which one to enjoy first?  Make a sundae of course!  Which is exactly what I did last week! I had raw double blueberry ginger lime ice cream, raw lime avocado ice cream, raw raspberry lavender ice cream and peach almond ice cream.  All the makings for a perfect fruit sundae.
 
I made a fresh raspberry sauce, and topped it off with all the different fresh fruits I had as well as some basil (I love herbs with my fruits, even in desserts).  It was fantabulous and perfect for 2 people to share!  If you do not want to go through the trouble of making all the ice creams, at least try making one, they are all so delicious, you will be happy you did!
