Are you trying to eat healthy and lose weight, but having trouble controlling your sweet tooth? Well, now you don’t have to with these Clean Eating Nice Cream versions of your favorite ice cream flavors that’ll help you kick your cravings without wrecking your diet or sacrificing taste! And the best part? They’re so incredibly healthy that you can actually enjoy them every day if you like! Dessert, anyone?! I’m know I’m excited!
You may be wondering, what is nice cream? While opinions differ a little bit, nice cream is basically a frozen dessert, similar to ice cream, that doesn’t contain any dairy, eggs, or sugar and is often made with frozen fruit and natural sweeteners like dates and bananas. Some “purists,” I guess you might call them, consider nice cream to be ice cream made from frozen bananas, but I like the expanded definition better because all whole foods plant based ice creams are healthier than the real thing, especially if you’re lactose intolerant like I am.
Bonus: All these nice creams are super easy, no-churn recipes, so you don’t even need an ice cream freezer! Just fire up the blender, pop ’em in the freezer, and you’ll have a super sweet, decadent (and healthy!) treat in no time.

Clean Eating Nice Cream Recipes for a Sweet Treat with ZERO Guilt or Deprivation
Basic Clean Eating Nice Cream Flavors
I think I’m the only one in my family who likes vanilla ice cream. Everyone else is a peanut butter and chocolate “freak.” With this healthy version of vanilla nice cream, I can make my own favorite flavor and not feel so guilty for eating it all myself – in a few sittings, of course. It’s also a fantastic base to add any other favorite fixin’s like coconut flakes, nuts, fruit, chocolate chips, and more.
I recently found the Whole Foods Plant Based Cooking Show on YouTube as I was researching the Nutritarian Diet, a super healthy plant based eating plan I just started this week to regain my health and lose weight.
One of my favorite recipes on the show is their Chocolate Frosty. If you’re missing this popular fast food treat, here’s a substitute that I think is actually better than the original (yea!) and incredibly easy to make!
CHOCOLATE ALMOND BUTTER
This super simple 3-ingredient chocolate ice cream contains almond butter to make it even creamier and more filling with some healthy protein.

Fruity Clean Eating Nice Cream Flavors
This recipe almost couldn’t get any easier! All you need is some fresh or frozen strawberries and coconut cream for a healthy frozen treat in no time!
Pineapple is one of the most refreshing tropical tastes for summer! This recipe features only fruit – banana and pineapple – in a true nice cream that couldn’t be better for your healthy, whole foods diet.
Here’s another refreshing tropical fruit treat to keep you cool this summer. This recipe calls for agave syrup, but this natural sweetener causes blood sugar spikes that same way refined sugars do. I prefer to use honey or maple syrup. Pitted dates are even better because the fiber in the whole fruit helps balance blood sugar and insulin levels.
Rhubarb custard is my favorite pie, so I was seriously intrigued by this nice cream recipe. Don’t be scared off by the sweet potato – makes this nice cream super creamy while adding lots of nutrients.
This fresh key lime nice cream has a secret ingredient – avocados – to add healthy fats and extra creaminess!
