Plant-Based Chocolate NICE Cream

This plant-based chocolate NICE cream is the ultimate Summer treat. It’s dairy free, creamy and Healthyish!

I added homemade maple vanilla marshmallows and peanut butter to mine to give it a “rocky road” vibe. **But please note, that if you do decide to add the homemade maple vanilla marshmallows, then this recipe is no longer vegan.** Reason being, the marshmallows call for gelatin which is not vegan. That said, the plain chocolate NICE cream recipe is completely vegan and delicious.

Growing up my favorite flavor of ice cream was always rocky road. I loved the cold, creamy chocolate ice cream mixed with chewy marshmallows and crunch nuts. Back then, me and my family would go to Baskin Robins and I would always get a double scoop! Ice cream was the perfect way to end a long hot Summer day. Turns out it still is. So, give this tasty recipe a try.
