Pomegranate Nice Cream is the refreshing treat you didn’t know you needed.
If you know me, you know I am a big fan of ice cream!
Cold Stone, Talenti, Frozen Yogurt…any type of 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: 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!!
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.
Pomegranate Juice is also a wonderful source of potassium – each 8oz. bottle contains just as much as that medium banana!

Can I use coconut cream instead of coconut milk?
Hi! It needs a little bit of liquid to get it to a nice consistency. You can try but you also may need to add a liquid of some kind. I hope you love it! Thank you. xo, Tawnie
My SIL is vegan – can’t wait to make this for her!!
I hope she loves it! Thank you Emily!
Love this recipe! I’m going to make it with my daughter. I might chop some chocolates into it too??
That’s such a great idea! Let me know what you think! Thank you!! xo
Does this have a strong taste of banana? Can you taste the pomegranate? Do you think adding dark chocolate chunks would go well with it?
I would say it is pretty banana-y to me, since the banana is the base 🙂 Pomegranate taste is subtle. Dark chocolate is delicious with everything so I think yes! 🙂
Since it is mainly banana it has a pretty banana-y flavor! You can slightly taste the pomegranate. and Adding chocolate is ALWAYS a good idea! 🙂 enjoy!
