Sophie Jaffe of Philosophie whipped up these nice cream sundaes and cones, shot some pics, sent them our way and and dropped the mic.
These are the kind of superfood dessert recipes we live for at The Chalkboard! You can find proof ad nauseam here. This amped up version of “nice cream” is easy to make, light on sugar and packed with nutrition (isn’t that kind of amazing?).
We live for Sophie’s coconut butters and superfood powders (no, we’re not paid to say this!) and we love the way she works them into summer treats like these. Get the fun recipe below and enter to win a set of your own Philosophie treats to make them at home!
This dreamy, detoxifying superfood “nice cream” sundae is all pleasure and no guilt. Our dairy-free rendition of the classic Sunday-afternoon staple stars bananas, coconut milk and Philosophie superfood blends (a seriously potent combo of ingredients like camu camu, mangosteen and acai berry, just to name a few). And there’s no ice cream maker required – you can whip up this divine creation with nothing more than your trusty high-speed blender!
The Superfood Sundae
For the nice cream base:
2 frozen bananas, frozen and cut into chunks
⅓ can light coconut milk
¼ tsp vanilla extract
a pinch of pink Himalayan salt
stevia, for added sweetness (optional)
2 tsp Philosophie Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend
For the chocolate sauce:
3 Tbsp coconut oil
3 Tbsp raw cacao powder
2 Tbsp Philosophie Cacao Bee Honey
For the nice-cream base:
Freeze the coconut milk overnight. When you’re ready to make the nice cream, add all ingredients to a high-speed blender.
Pulse and scrape down the sides of your blender, until you reach the desired consistency. Feel free to add a little nut milk or ice cubes, as needed!
For berry nice cream: Pulse 1/3 of your base with a handful of berries (fresh or frozen) and 1 teaspoon of Philosphie Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend!
For chocolate nice cream: Pulse 1/3 of your base with 2 teaspoons of cacao nibs and 1-2 teaspoons of Philosophie Cacao Magic Superfood + Protein Blend!
For the chocolate sauce:
Warm the honey and coconut oil until melted. Stir in the cacao powder until fully combined. For a thicker sauce, add 1 teaspoon of cacao at a time!
To assemble your sundaes:
Layer your ice cream in a tall glass or bowl. Drizzle with chocolate sauce and sprinkle with your favorite toppings like goji berries, mulberries, cashews, bee pollen or slivered almonds!
Have your spoon ready and dig in!
