If you know me, you know I am a big fan of ice cream! Cold Stone, Talenti, Frozen Yogurt…any creamy frozen dessert that resembles ice cream… I’m in! This “nice cream” is a trend relatively new to me but certainly not new to the vegan world. The base of nice cream is frozen bananas, and then you can mix in anything to create the flavor profile you want! For this nice cream, I opted for POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice because first and foremost it is powered by antioxidants. Plus, I know a lot of people are fighting a cold/flu (including myself!) this time of year so the boost of antioxidants is necessary.
Fun fact time: Did you know the pomegranate is whole-pressed?! Meaning a unique blend of polyphenol antioxidants from 2 whole pomegranates – including its fruit, pith and rind – is found in each 8oz. bottle!! If you’d like to get the full benefits that come along with POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice I recommend enjoying the full 8oz not only to get those wonderful antioxidants in but studies have shown it is beneficial for muscle strength recovery, memory and cognition, your microbiome and much more.
This dessert is also rich in potassium. Many of you know bananas are a great source of potassium, containing about ~400mg per medium sized banana. POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice is also a wonderful source of potassium – each 8oz. bottle contains just as much as that medium banana!
