Health Benefits of Macadamia Butter Nice Cream 

Bananas - are a great source of potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B6, magnesium, copper, and manganese. In addition, they are loaded with fiber that acts as a prebiotic in your gut – helping to support a healthy microbiome. 

Macadamia nut butter - rich, perfectly balanced, and delish... we're not kidding when we say that this nut butter is spoon-licking good. Beyond the delicious taste – macadamia nuts are also a nutrient-dense powerhouse! ⁠Macadamia nuts are rich in healthy fats – in particular, ALA omega 3 fats and oleic acid (omega 9)- supporting your brain and heart.⁠ 

Strawberries - are a fantastic source of vitamin C – 1 cup provides 149% of your DV of vitamin C! They also contain antioxidants including anthocyanins, tannins, flavanols, catechins, and resveratrol. 

Other Nice Cream Flavours

Although we think macadamia butter and strawberries are the ultimate pairing – you can’t go wrong with any of these nice cream flavours! Here are a few suggestions:

Nutella: hazelnut butter, cocoa powder, bananas

Vanilla: macadamia nut butter, vanilla extract or vanilla bean, bananas

Cherry: almond nut butter, cherries, bananas

Matcha: macadamia nut butter, bananas, matcha powder


Tips for Success

- For less sweetness, use slightly green (less ripe) bananas. For more sweetness, use spotty, ripe bananas!

- Slice bananas before freezing to make blending easier.

- If your blender is having trouble with the thick texture, allow the banana to thaw for 5 minutes before making the nice cream. Alternatively, you can add a splash (1 tbsp) of plant-based milk

- Freeze leftovers (if you have any - you probably won’t because it’s so delicious!) in a covered silicone mold. When ready to enjoy, you can pop the nice cream out of the mold and blend it again for that delicious soft-serve consistency - or enjoy as is, if you prefer a thicker (more frozen) consistency.
