Hot summer days can be difficult to survive without frozen treats. Luckily there’s tons of frozen goodies without sugar and dairy!
While the recipe below is one of our favorites, the options are endless when it comes to Nice Cream. Start with a frozen banana base and toss in your favorite fruit: berries, pineapple, mangoes, cherries, etc. You can also get creative by adding cacao, peanut butter, mint, almonds or even espresso powder. The sky’s the limit!
Dr. Greger recommends a serving of berries each and every day and three servings of other fruits. One serving = 1/2 cup of fresh or frozen berries. The recipe below has 3 cups of berries and serves 6, thus all 6 people who are lucky enough to enjoy your batch of Blueberry Cinnamon Nice Cream can check off their berry serving for the day.
So why do berries get their own category while all other fruits are lumped together? Because when it comes to preventing disease, berries are rock stars! They can reduce and repair damage from inflammation and stressors on the body. They also give the immune system a boost. Go berries!!
Another note on this sweet treat – each serving has over 6 grams of fiber. The natural fiber found in whole fruit means we don’t have to stress about the sugar. Fiber helps regulate sugar absorption, helping with satiety and weight management. Learn more about satiety and weight management HERE.
