Ah, nice cream we meet again! You all probably know by now that I’m obsessed with nice cream. I have it for breakfast every single morning because it’s quick, easy, and naturally delicious. It’s made purely from frozen fruit, meaning it’s high carb, low fat, raw, vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, and sugar-free. Basically, it’s the healthiest, plant-based ice cream alternative out there. Lately, I’ve been really liking this mango blueberry dragon fruit nice cream.
I love that, as a vegan, ice cream for breakfast is a totally acceptable option. Whoever discovered that frozen bananas taste like ice cream (hence the name “nice cream”), kudos to you. Seriously, I don’t think I’ll ever stop craving nice cream.
I’ve been picking up loads of fruit from the market here in Hong Kong and then freezing it myself. Life hack: cutting fresh fruit and freezing it is a lot cheaper than buying fruit already frozen. I cannot stress this point enough! Seriously, you’ll save so much money by freezing it yourself. On my last fruit haul, I picked up a couple of huge mangos, blueberries, dragon fruit, and bananas for a very reasonable price. That’s why I was inspired me to mix these flavors together!
I forgot how much I liked mangos since I really didn’t eat them as much this past year while I was living in Los Angeles or Atlanta. After living in Hong Kong the first time, I got so spoiled by how perfectly ripe and sweet the mangos were that the ones I found in the U.S. couldn’t even compare. So, I stopped eating them, but now that I’m back in Hong Kong I’m falling in love with mango all over again.
Pitaya, or dragon fruit, is another fruit I’m lucky to be able to easily find in Hong Kong. Every market we go to has them, even the ones that are magenta pink instead of white on the inside. So, they add that really pretty pink color and more natural sweetness to the nice cream.
Please try this nice cream if you like nice cream as much as I do! I’ve already shared dragon fruit nice cream and blueberry nice cream, so it was just a matter of time before I combined them. I’m trying to come up with new flavor combos for you all, since it’s a favorite meal of mine. If you do make this, please share with me on Instagram because I love seeing your beautiful recreations.
