Refresh and nourish yourself with this easy and delicious mango berry nice cream! With only a few natural ingredients, this healthy treat fits snugly into paleo, GAPS, and vegan lifestyles!
All the summer treats.
Summer has hit the south full force. Not that it ever isn’t summer down here… practically speaking. During the hotter summer months my family is all about the chilly treats. Give us all the popsicles, smoothies, and fun drinks! But still, nothing saves a hot summer day more quickly than a ice cream. Am I right? Of course I am. And when that ice cream is healthy, homemade, and free of all major allergens (read: dairy, eggs, nuts, grains, etc.) you really can’t go wrong!
On days when I don’t want to wait for my ice creams to firm up, I turn to nice creams in the blender. They’re always quick and easy and 100% healthy! This tasty mango berry nice cream fulfills all those requirements and is always a hit in my house.

Mango Berry Nice Cream.
The base of this nice cream is pretty easy, just a mango. Creamy and delicious, mangoes are my favorite summer fruit. Mangoes are technically a drupe or stone fruit, putting them in the same family as peaches, plums, coconuts, dates, and olives. They’re jam-packed with vitamin C and vitamin A, as well as vitamins B6, E, and K! They also contain the minerals copper and potassium, as well as powerful antioxidants like quercetin, astragalin, zeaxanthin, and beta-carotene.
For the berry part of this mango berry nice cream, I usually use the Costco mixed berry blend. It contains raspberries, mulberries, and blueberries, which my family loves! I’ve also used strawberries, too. Just whatever frozen berries you have on hand will work great!
In general, you can’t go wrong with any type of berries, nutritionally speaking. Berries are all packed with antioxidants – up to 10x as much as other fruits!
In order to smooth out this delicious nice cream, I add in a little coconut milk. You don’t have to add in a lot, if you’re using a food processor, but if you’ve just got a blender you might want a little more. I use my homemade coconut milk (it’s so easy to make!), but you can use any canned variety you like, or even use almond milk, as well. If you can do dairy, you could use raw or whole milk, too. Of course, it wouldn’t be just fruit then…. or paleo… 😉
