“Life is short.
Eat dessert first.”
Summer is right around the corner, which means the days are getting warmer, and we all know one of the best things about warm days is cool treats!
Today, I’ve got another refreshing Nice Cream recipe to share with you that I know you’re going to want to add to your summer rotation.
But why wait until summer?
This dessert is simple to make (only 4 ingredients!), packed with flavor, and full of nutrients like potassium and Vitamin C, which makes it a fabulous go-to any time you’re craving a little something sweet.
Plus, I boosted it with a little vanilla protein powder. If you’re having this as a treat after dinner, that addition of the protein will help satisfy you and make you less likely to keep looking for snacks. You don’t have to add it in to make the recipe work, but it’s a great option to have and the recipe holds it well!

…I don’t like bananas? Try subbing mango – you’ll get a similar consistency with the same fiber benefits.
…I’m not into strawberries? That’s ok, give cherries a try!
…I can’t have almond milk? Any kind will do; use your favorite, or just use water for a thinner consistency.
