Date and Pecan Nice Cream

This date and pecan nice cream tastes like dessert, but is so healthy you can eat it for breakfast.

We have used activated pecans for their great taste as well as their enhanced nutritional value. It is also delicious with activated walnuts!

This one does require a little pre-planning is we blend the pecans, water and dates ahead of time to create ice cubes. This contributes to the delicious creamy ice cream-like texture and also makes the blend go further. If you’re short in time, skip this step and omit water.

Serves 2

  • Activated Pecans, 1/2 cup
  • Filtered Water, 1 cup
  • Medjool Dates, 2 pcs
  • Bananas, 4 (frozen)
  • Plant-Based Protein Powder, 1 tbsp (optional)

  3. Combine bananas, pecan-date ice cubes and protein powder in a blender, blend until smooth and creamy.
  4. Spoon into your Coconut Bowls and add desired toppings.
