Berry Beet Nice Cream

Print

My sweet tooth has always held up ice cream as the holy grail of desserts. Add chocolate into the mix? I may marry the bowl. Fast foward one year and one dairy-dissing stomach, however, and my taste buds have gone bananas…in the best of ways.

I’d heard of banana nice cream before from fellow allergy-friendly blogs or Instagram posts, but I always figured it would taste more like fruity ice than the Dairy Queen of my dreams. One desperate summer night, though, I threw some frozen naners, a little water, and a lot of hope into my blender…and out popped a delicious bowl of frozen delight.

Packed with nutrients and easily adaptable to every pair of picky tastebuds…it’s easy to see why I devour a tower of nanaicecream every day for breakfast or a post-workout treat.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This recipe has tons of fruits and veggies, making it a healthful treat that packs quite a punch of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. The coconut and avocado add healthful fats, and the chia seeds and yogurt add some protein. This is a terrific mini meal, especially if it tastes as good as it sounds.

Berry Beet Nice Cream

  • Prep Time:20 mins
  • Cook Time:0 mins
  • Servings: 1

Ingredients

1 tablespoon chia seeds (ground for a smoother texture)
2 tablespoons coconut flour
3 tablespoons vanilla greek yogurt (OR avocado for dairy-free version)
One heaping handful (or more if tolerant) of greens
1 handful of frozen fruit (cherries, strawberries, raspberries and pomegranate seeds)
A few pieces of chopped frozen beet
1/4 cup coconut milk

Optional:
Any desired flavor add-ins (powders like cacao, acai or maca; vanilla; spices; extracts; stevia drops, etc)
optional extra veggies ( celery, broccoli, zucchini, squash, etc) – about half as much of these as fruit to keep the smoothie sweet!

Instructions

1. Gather and add all ingredients to blender. I like to layer mine by frozen fruit/vegetables, flour and chia seeds, leafy greens, more frozen fruit/vegetables, a scoop of yogurt and/or avocado, and finally any spices/flavorings plus the liquid of choice. Then push the button and ready your tastebuds for some healthy, allergy-free ice cream!
2. Enjoy!
