Although thankfully there are a gazillion different vegan ice creams available nowadays, and you can even find dairy-free options at local ice cream shops, a lot of them still contain a lot of sugar. If you want a naturally sweetened frozen treat that tastes just as luscious as ice cream, make this cherry "nice" cream.
Made with just four ingredients — frozen cherries, frozen banana, unsweetened vanilla soy milk, and plant-based protein powder — this treat comes together in about five minutes and tastes so fresh, creamy, and sweet, you'll want to make it again and again.
- 2 cups frozen cherries
1 frozen banana
1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla soy milk
1/3 cup vanilla or chocolate plant-based protein powder (I used 1 serving of vanilla KOS, which has 20 grams of protein per serving)
Toppings optional (chocolate chips, chopped nuts, hemp seeds, shredded coconut, or granola)
- Add the frozen cherries, banana, and soy milk to a food processor or blender, and puree a few minutes until the fruit is finely chopped.
- Add the protein powder, and puree until smooth.
- Scoop out half the ice cream, add the toppings of your choice, and enjoy!
