By  | 

Nothing says summertime quite like a big bowl of ice cream. Yet many people either can’t or don’t choose to eat dairy, but have no fear . . . this “nice cream” won’t leave you with a sugar hangover or a bloated belly from all the dairy.
 
“Nice cream” is all the rage as a healthy, delicious, and dairy-free alternative from the traditional ice cream treat. Made with all the creamy healthy fat from coconut milk and antioxidant rich berries and black cherries, this is a “nice cream” dessert you can enjoy without the guilt or the bloat.

  • 1 cup organic frozen berries
  • 1 cup organic frozen dark cherries
  • 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup

Health Benefits and More Reasons to LOVE this Nice Cream!

Berries and cherries are packed with antioxidants called anthocyanins. These antioxidants help the body fight oxidative stress, boost the immune system, improve hair/skin/nails, fight cancers and other diseases. Let’s just say there’s not a lot that anthocyanins can’t do!
 
Now how about that coconut milk?! Coconut milk helps lower bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol. Coconuts are full of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and electrolytes. Instead of a sugary sports drink, choose coconut water instead . . . or just have another scoop of this nice cream!
 
Do your health a favor and enjoy a big bowl of Cherry Berry Nice Cream before the summer comes to a close. ENJOY!!
