Nice cream is the easy way to make a beloved dessert dairy-free. But what would be even nicer is if you didn’t need a bunch of bananas to make a batch. This homemade vegan strawberry ice cream uses coconut for that thick, velvety base. For good measure, this recipe adds a scoop of plant-based vanilla protein. For something so sweet, it’s quite the body-friendly treat.
