Double Chocolate Vegan Nice Cream

This simple vegan nice cream is so rich and delicious, you’d hardly guess that it’s healthy. It’s vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, and with a simple substitution, can easily be made low-FODMAP too!

Hey, friends. Sorry I’ve been neglecting the blog a bit this week. I’ll try to be back to a more regular posting schedule next week. I’ve had a lot on my mind to share with y’all, but I’ve been prioritizing spending time with friends and family.

This recipe is so simple I’m not even sure I can put it up on the blog and call it a “recipe”–“recipe” implies some kind of hard work and/or creative genius went into making it. In reality, I just threw a couple of things that I happened to have together for a snack. But…DSCN1647It turned out too good not to share. A rich, delicious, cool summer treat–but a tad on the “healthier” side with fiber, fruit, protein, and healthy fats.

This is the first recipe I’ve posted to the blog that’s not strictly low-FODMAP, as it contains some delicious chocolate soy nut butter I found (on sale) at the grocery store near my house. But it can easily be made so by replacing the chocolate soy nut butter for a chocolate nut butter made with low- or moderate-FODMAP nuts, such as almonds, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds or peanuts.

Enjoy!

For FODMAPers

  2. FODMAPers can use regular (non-vegan) chocolate chips, as semi-sweet chocolate contains a negligible amount of lactose.

  1. What even is a recipe? Unless that one time I saw someone label a post about mixing peanut flour with water ‘recipe’ I don’t think a dish needs to be super involved. Soy nut butter sounds intriguing. What does its taste compare to?

      Ha! Good point. I haven’t tried regular soy nut butter, but the chocolate kind I got is a bit quite salty–it’s somewhat similar to sunflower seed butter.

    Yum! So simple, yet delicious. I make my chocolate nice cream with cocoa powder, then swirl in the chocolate peanut butter. It’s extra special with the deep cocoa flavor 🙂

    1. Joyce says:

      Nice! That sounds awesome.

  3. I love the simplicity of this! Frozen bananas are a staple in my house. Good call on the soy nut butter!

    1. Joyce says:

      Mine too! Partly because I can’t eat them fast enough before they get too ripe 😉

    1. Joyce says:

      Definitely devourable 😉
