•If you don’t have a food processor, you can freeze the mixture in a baking dish, removing it and mixing or blending it every 30 minutes until smooth, creamy, and adequately chilled.

Every organ in your body, including your brain, depends on healthy cells to function properly. Every cell has minute amounts of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Your body gets these vital elements when you eat and drink healthy foods and liquids. You also can obtain these elements through supplements, such as multi-vitamins. Without vitamins, minerals and amino acids, your body, including the brain, would cease to function properly. Good nutrition feeds the brain cells.

Galaxy Nutritional Foods Dairy-Free Cheesecake Ice Cream:
Creamy cashews and rich cream cheese alternative make an amazing base for ice cream. To get a little extra cheesecake tang, I add a dash of salt and generous squeeze of lemon. Feel free to adjust the lemon juice to taste; I usually end up right at 2-1/2 tablespoons.
