Here’s a delicious recipe for lemon blueberry nice cream. Another fun alternative is my purple passion smoothie.
When you want a frozen treat or an ice cream, but would rather not have the dairy, nice cream is the perfect alternative.
What is Nice Cream?
Nice cream, is a play-on-words of ice cream, for ice cream alternatives that are dairy-free and healthier than traditional ice cream. Most traditional ice creams are filled with flavorings.
For example, did you know that the green color of pistachio ice cream isn’t from pistachios?! Nope, it’s from coloring. One day, I’ll have to do a pistachio ice cream recipe using spirulina for the green color!
For today though, I’ll be sharing my lemon blueberry alternative to ice cream, which is packed with nutrition and super delicious!
Lemon Blueberry Nice Cream
This recipe uses frozen banana and blueberries – a tad of lemon zest as well as honey. That’s it!
You just blend it together, and voila! You have a healthy, frozen treat.
- 1/2 bunch of asparagus
- 6-8 strawberries
- 2 Tbsp coconut aminos
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 clove garlic
- pink salt (optional)
- Lightly steam asparagus until tender, about 5 min. Cool & cut into quarters.
- Remove strawberry tops & cut into quarters.
- Combine coconut aminos, lemon juice, and minced garlic. Toss with asparagus and strawberries.
- Season to taste with salt.
This salad is a great make ahead snack or side to any meal. The longer the strawberries and asparagus get to sit in the dressing the better it will taste!
Double or triple this recipe to serve family style at your next party or barbeque!
Tip: Alot for enough time during preparation for the asparagus to cool completely before combining with strawberries. This will help to keep strawberries firm and fresh.
Another fun alternative for ice cream is banana nice cream. Banana ice cream is frozen bananas blended up into a soft serve! It is delicious! You can make it with your blender or with one of these soft serve makers.
