Please note that Always Eat After 7 PM is not strictly dairy free, but it offers a lot of recipes that are, or can easily be dairy-free. It’s also a helpful guide for people interested in low sugar dieting and weight loss.

Joel’s Cherry Garcia Nice Cream recipe is naturally dairy-free. But we also have a few tips and substitution options that might be helpful for you.

  • Always Eat After 7pmFor a bigger cherry infusion, blend a few frozen cherries in with the banana.
  • If you don’t have fresh cherries on hand, you can use frozen cherries. Let them defrost a little before stirring in. We recommend frozen sweet dark cherries.
  • The serving sizes are very small. You might only get 2 to 3 servings from this recipe, depending on your appetite. But keep in mind that the nutrition facts are for 4 servings.
  • You can substitute coconut cream for the full-fat coconut milk, but try to avoid using coconut milk beverage or another milk beverage. The drinkable versions won’t create a creamy finish.
  • We like to shave the chocolate, rather than chopping it. Shaved chocolate is easier to eat and provides a better chocolate infusion when eating frozen treats.
  • If you do freeze this mixture, it will be a bit icy. “Nice cream” doesn’t freeze as creamy as regular ice cream.
