Strawberry "Cheesecake" Nice Cream

Beat the heat with this super easy, super tasty Nice Cream recipe!

With the forecast in Calgary and Edmonton calling for plus 30° temperatures, I figured it was the perfect time to give making Nice Cream a try. Nice Cream is a dairy free "ice cream" that is similar to sorbet but rather than adding ice it uses bananas to create a creamy texture that mimics ice cream.

Since going dairy free and gluten free years ago I have missed one of my favourite desserts, strawberry cheesecake. Not only did this recipe satisfy my cheesecake craving but it has a fraction of the calories and packs a ton of flavour!

If your body agrees with dairy, feel free to use Greek yogurt. I went with a vanilla coconut based yogurt but if you aren't a fan of coconut you can substitute with a different vegan yogurt such as oat yogurt or almond yogurt.
