The ultimate guilt-free treat! This delicious nice cream is not only vegan but also sugar-free, using monk fruit as a sweetener.

My secret ingredient to give this Mint Chocolate Nice Cream an Earthy tone is Spirulina - a blue-green algae believed to be one of the oldest life forms on Earth! This superfood is a great source of vegan protein, vitamins, minerals, carotenoids, and antioxidants!

Nice cream, because it's primarily made from frozen bananas, is best enjoyed immediately after blending because it has the creamiest, soft-serve-like texture at that moment. Once frozen, it can become quite hard and lose that smooth, creamy texture that makes it so delightful.


If you do need to store it for later, here are a few tips to help keep it as enjoyable as possible:


  1. Store Properly: Transfer the nice cream to an airtight container. You can lay a piece of parchment paper directly on the surface of the nice cream before sealing the container to help prevent ice crystals from forming.

  2. Thawing: When you’re ready to eat it, remove the nice cream from the freezer about 10-15 minutes before serving. This allows it to thaw slightly, making it easier to scoop and bringing back some of its creamy texture.

  3. Quick Refresh: If it's too hard or icy, you can give it a quick blend again after it has thawed slightly, adding a splash of plant-based milk if needed to help it along. This can help revive the creamy texture.


These steps can help extend the life of your spirulina nice cream while maintaining as much of its original texture and flavor as possible. Enjoy your delicious Earthy treat, Veginners! 🌱🍦 For more fun ways to celebrate Earth Month, check out this blog post.
