Blackberry Rhubarb Nice Cream


This Blackberry Rhubarb Nice Cream is the perfect treat to welcome summer!  It’s incredibly healthy and tastes just like ice cream but it’s made with fruit.  It’s vegan, gluten-free, and sweetened naturally-  nice cream indeed!


Rhubarb- A Seasonal Favorite

Rhubarb is one of those spring delicacies a person either adores or probably doesn’t care for.  I will be honest, initially I was not a big fan. My grandparents had a rhubarb plant behind their house and my cousins loved to eat it raw right off the plant. I tried it once on their convincing and I wasn’t too impressed. However, with a little time I have come around to the earlier camp.  Just as long as it’s not raw!

For this Blackberry Rhubarb Nice Cream, the rhubarb is roasted with two tablespoons of agave nectar to bring out the natural sweetness of the rhubarb and also to provide a nice smooth texture for the nice cream.

If you love rhubarb, be sure to also check out our Vegan Rhubarb Crumble. But whether you prefer your rhubarb hot or cold, its tangy flavor will have you wishing this seasonal ingredient was available year round.


What You Will Need

The best part about this specialty nice cream?…  You only need 5 ingredients!

  1. Frozen banana
  2. Blackberries
  3. Rhubarb
  4. Plant-based milk
  5. Agave Nectar


Tips and Tricks

  • The key to a creamy nice cream is the frozen banana.  The riper the banana, the sweeter your dessert.  Fortunately, with this combo, agave is also used to roast the rhubarb so there is a little extra sweetness even if your banana isn’t overly ripe.


  • We typically make our nice cream in our Vitamix but a food processor can also be used.  No need for an ice cream maker! After the rhubarb is cooked, simply put everything in the blender and pulse until a smooth consistency is obtained.


  • Feel free to eat it immediately, or freeze it for an hour or two for a firmer texture.  Basically it will be like soft serve out of the blender, but closer to store bought ice cream if you freeze it.
