During these warm summer days, sometimes you just need a breakfast (or snack, or dessert) that is super light, healthy, and cooling. This recipe fits that description! Rachel of Food By Rach, is a local food blogger who loves sharing her passion for healthy, clean food. For this recipe, she recommends using a high-powered blender (like a Vitamix or Blendtec) or a food processor to achieve the best results.
“Nice cream” is typically a frozen dessert made without the use of dairy. This one gets a healthy boost from spirulina, which is a type of blue-green algae that is full of nutrients like protein, Vitamins B1, B2, and B3, and Iron. (Giving it superfood status!) The spirulina also gives this nice cream its gorgeous green color. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
What You’ll Need
- Kimberton Whole Foods Spirulina (2 tablets, or 1 tsp)
- 2 frozen bananas
- 1/2 cup frozen pineapple (mango is also a great alternative)
- 1/4 cup plant milk
Blend until completely smooth, 1 minute or more. (Use a tamper or stop every few seconds to stir, if your blender needs it.) Spoon into a serving bowl or jar, and top with fresh fruit, such as strawberries and dragonfruit.
