Sometimes you just need/want a nice cream sundae. This recipe is what I reach for when that undeniable craving hits. For those of you unfamiliar with "nice cream", I'm referring to homemade fruit "ice cream". The name is a little misleading since it's mostly made of blended frozen fruit. For best results I highly recommend using a food processor. A blender or stick blender will work in a pinch, but you may have to add a little liquid (nut milk or coconut water) to make it blend smoothly. I find this really waters down the flavor and texture though, so go food processor if you can. To make this recipe into an ice cream sundae, I made a raw chocolate magic shell to layer between two nice cream flavors. The shell is so easy to make, especially in the summer when coconut oil tends to liquify.
