When the sun shines, ice cream is a must.
And with this vegan berry protein nice cream recipe, you can indulge in a bowl of the good stuff whilst staying firmly on track towards your healthy eating goals.
This simple 4-ingredient nice cream recipe is vegan, gluten-free, ultra-refreshing and doesn’t require an ice cream machine.
Even better, it’s only 200 kcal, with 9g of vegan protein per serving.
We whipped up this summer’s day treat with a base of frozen bananas, rich in potassium, manganese and vitamins B6 & C, alongside zingy and antioxidant-packed frozen berries.
With the addition of the vegan protein, natural fats and fibre found in Purition, this nice cream recipe is super nutrient-dense and satisfying. That means you can curb your sweet tooth and banish hunger pangs, all at once.
It’s a healthy ice cream dream!

Get the mix moving
The frozen fruit can take a while to blend. If you’re having trouble, stop the blender and use a tamper or spoon to mash the fruit and help it on its way. Add nut milk as required to loosen the mix. Depending on the power of your processor/blender, it can take a while, but don’t give up—the end result is worth it!
Freeze your bananas the right way
If you chop bananas and throw them in a freezer bag or tupperware, you’ll end up with a hard-to-blend clump of bananas. Instead, chop your bananas and lay them flat, in a single layer, on a lined baking tray. Freeze for around 2 hours. If needed, you can then place any unused frozen banana slices into a freezer-safe bag or Tupperware and use them whenever your next nice cream craving hits.
