Hot summer days call for cool treats! Growing in popularity, “nice cream” is a great alternative. Not only are you eliminating the saturated fat and added sugar of dairy ice cream, you’re gaining the vitamins, minerals, and natural sugars of fruit! It really doesn’t get much simpler (and guilt free) than this and the possible combinations are endless.
2 frozen bananas
¾ cup of frozen raspberries
½ scoop of vegan chocolate protein powder
1 – ½ tbsp of chopped fresh mint leaves
- Add the bananas, raspberries and a splash of almond milk (to get it going) to a food processor.
- Process until the fruit is chopped, but not totally smooth.
- Add the mint and protein powder. I used a bit more almond milk because of the protein powder.
- Continue to process until smooth.
Additional toppings pictured: frozen raspberries, cacao nibs, and fresh mint.
