Chocolate Hemp “Nice” Cream

Liana Werner-Gray


Reminiscent of your favorite frozen dessert but a whole lot nicer, this vegan-friendly ice cream is made with superfood ingredients. While most dairy-free ice cream alternatives use bananas as a base, this clever version gets its creamy texture – and a bounty of nutritional benefits – from hemp milk and hemp hearts. The nutty hemp, rich chocolate and sunflower seed butter come together in a swirl of delightful flavors that’ll satiate your cravings without leaving you bloated or tired. Sorry dairy-laden ice creams, but we think it’s nice when everyone can have some.
