Chocolate Cherry N’ice Cream

Welcome Michelle from The Whole Smiths!

Treat your family to Chocolate Cherry N’ice Cream, a healthy, paleo version of your favorite summertime treat!

Hi everybody, it’s Michelle over from The Whole Smiths where I blog paleo and wholesome recipes for the whole family. Thank you so much for letting me visit and share a bit of my family’s kitchen with you!

Now that the weather is starting to warm up again, it’s time to bring out the N’ice cream! What’s that you ask? Our version of ice cream that’s a bit more on the healthy side of things. It’s nice! Get it? :) Essentially you use frozen bananas as the base to create lots of delicious, creamy “ice creams”. This whole dessert is dairy free, which is an added bonus for families that have dairy allergies or intolerances. And you won’t believe just how easy it is to make. In fact, my kids help me make this all the time.

Chocolate Cherry Nice Cream Recipe - The Whole Smiths for Tastes of Lizzy T

Chocolate Cherry N’ice Cream is our newest favorite flavor that I’ve concocted. I use frozen cherries (which are now available at Trader Joe’s AND Costco), frozen bananas, almond or coconut milk and some cocoa powder for the n’ice cream itself. That’s it! You don’t even need an ice cream maker to make this, a high-powered blender or food processor will do.

For the whipped topping, I use coconut cream and honey. I use a can of whole, full-fat coconut milk that has been refrigerated over night. By refrigerating the coconut milk, you separate the coconut water from the coconut milk fat that will harden. When you open the can you just scoop out the hardened cream and use that portion making sure not to get any liquid into the cream as it will thin out the whipped topping. Add some honey and beat on high or use a food processor or blender to lighten up and fluff.
