Strawberry Ginger Chocolate Chunk Nicecream

Happy summer and happy ice cream season! Frozen desserts are one of summer’s greatest pleasures. Because this Strawberry Ginger Chocolate Chunk Nicecream is vegan, fruit-sweetened, and protein-rich, it’s a great one to enjoy all summer long. Sweet strawberries, zippy ginger, and decadent OHi Bar chunks make for an unexpected and delightful combination of flavors and textures.


Ingredients

  • 2 Almond Dark Chocolate OHi Bars
  • 4 ripe, sliced, frozen bananas
  • 1 c frozen strawberries, divided
  • ¼- ½ c full-fat coconut milk
  • 10 cubes of crystallized ginger OR 1 tbsp fresh grated ginger

Directions

  1. Dice up the two OHi Bars and set them aside. It’s okay if you end up with differently-sized pieces; they’ll make the Nicecream more fun! But in general, try to cut the bars into cubes the size of chocolate chunks in a typical ice cream.
  2. In a food processor, combine the frozen bananas, half of the frozen strawberries, ¼ c coconut milk, and ginger. Process until you achieve a thick, rich texture, similar to soft-serve ice cream. If needed, add additional coconut milk to help bring your Nicecream together.
  3. Add the remaining frozen strawberries and pulse the food processor a few times to cut them up but still leave some larger pieces.
  4. Add the OHi Bar chunks and stir them in by hand, making sure they get evenly incorporated throughout the Nicecream.
  5. Enjoy immediately as soft-serve ice cream. Or, transfer the Nicecream to a container and freeze for several hours to create harder, scoopable ice cream.

Customize It

  • Switch up the color and flavor by using any frozen berries you love, or a combination of a few types. Ginger and chocolate both go great with all berries!
  • Keep the recipe free of added sugar by using fresh ginger instead of crystallized ginger.
  • Give it a swirl! Stir in a few spoonfuls of strawberry jam by hand at the end, mixing it in just enough to leave strawberry swirls throughout.
  • Add any other mix-ins you love. Shredded coconut, pistachios, some additional chocolate, or even some ice cream cone pieces would all go great with these flavors.
  • Make it a sundae! This Nicecream would be delicious with chocolate sauce, fresh strawberries, and a dollop of whipped coconut cream.
