Persimmon Maca Protein Nice cream| Vegan & Dairy-free

Persimmon Maca Protein Nice cream| Vegan & Dairy-free

Persimmon is a fruit that I don’t get to eat too often but when I find them during fall and winter I make sure to buy as many as possible. They are perfectly sweet and juicy, so how can you not like them?

I had a lot of extra persimons so I decided to put them in my nice cream and it turned out great! It was so good that I thought I was having ice cream!

This persimmon nice cream contains only 4 ingredients and is high in protein so it’s the perfect snack after a workout.

You will need frozen bananas to make it extra creamy and sweet and a peeled persimmon cut in pieces. You will add some coconut milk and some plain or vanilla flavored protein. Also you will add a heaping teaspoon of maca powder in. Maca is known for its hormonal balancing properties and it gives a beautiful caramel like taste to anything added to. It goes so well with the persimmon sweetness!

After you blend everything you will end up with the most perfect nice cream that’s naturally sweet and creamy! And of course it’s super healthy, vegan and dairy free!

Make sure you add a bit of natural peanut butter to it. It really goes well with this nice cream!

Banana bread is the perfect treat when your sweet tooth calls for cake! I love making cakes but I am not a fan of making a mess in the kitchen and having to wash a bunch of bowls after I’m done baking. Also I don’t like complicated recipes!
