Who is in the mood for some cold refreshing pineapple and cantaloupe coconut nice cream?

All without the major guilt factor of regular ice cream and with some extra nutritional boost?

I know I am!!

There is some thing about the combination of pineapple and coconut that just scream SUMMER!!! This nice cream is everything you want in a Pina Colada icy cold treat!!

It just hits the spot well on every.single.time!!

 My other favorite flavor combo is cantaloupe with coconut – do I need to say more?

This nice cream recipe is vegan, refined-sugar-free, gluten-free and Paleo-friendly!!

I’ve been having one of these flavor combos each and every day of the week lately. When the temps are in the mid 80s and higher and the heat index is through the roof there is nothing that tastes better than an ice cold fruity snack!! After every run I’m looking forward to get back home to refresh with some delicious cold nice cream! Around my kids I call it ice cream though…. for whatever reason, as soon as I’m telling them that it’s a healthier alternative they refuse to try it, but if I say we’re having some pineapple ice cream they come running and they actually looove it!! Funny how that goes…

The truth of the matter is that I have always enjoyed nice creams way before I knew it was actually called nice cream! That moment when your smoothie turned out too thick and you need a spoon to enjoy it rather than a straw… so right there you basically had your nice cream.
