Recipe: Strawberry ‘Nice’ Cream

My all-time favourite dessert is ice cream, and while there are now plenty of tasty plant-based alternatives on the market, this simple recipe really hits the spot without the refined sugar and saturated fat that you’ll find in most of the store-bought options.

Prep time: 5 minutes

Serves: 2-4

*Vegan

*Oil free

What You’ll Need

A high-speed blender (eg. Vitamix)

Ingredients

Nice cream

3 frozen, ripe bananas

2 cups frozen strawberries

3-4 medjool dates

½ cup soymilk

Toppings

2 Tbsp hemp seeds

Instructions

  1. Put the bananas, strawberries, and dates in the blender with approximately half (1/4 cup) of the soymilk.
  2. Blend, beginning on slow-med speed, using a tamper if your blender came with one.
  3. If you’re having difficulty blending, add the rest of the soymilk.
  4. Slowly increase blender speed and blend until it reaches a smooth and creamy consistency.
  5. Poor the ‘nice’ cream into a bowl, sprinkle the hemp seeds over top, and enjoy!
