Summer is coming and I can’t wait to start making cold desserts again!
And now that I am a proud owner of the Vitamix, I can make all sorts of delicious thick nice cream without worrying that my blender will break. The recipe I’m sharing today is Pina Colada Nice Cream. It’s like a healthier, non-alcoholic version of frozen Pina Colada. And it’s super delicious.
Even though I absolutely adore my Vitamix, I still have a soft spot for my Breville blender. It’s been so reliable that I’m rather sad of the fact that I have to retire it. But I’m not throwing it away completely. I’m keeping it for other non-food hobby projects that require a blender (like making skincare products or candle wax).
Anyway, here’s a quick and easy nice-cream recipe, which you can make without using an ice-cream maker. You just need a blender. You don’t even need a power blender!
And if your blender is struggling, just add some extra water a little at a time to ‘help’ your blender process the frozen fruits.
It’s mildly sweet, rich, creamy and minty. Everything I like in an ice cream. It’s really good! I hope you try it.
