Recipe for Strawberry Hibiscus Nice Cream!

Live Demo for Kura:

This week I worked with my friend Alex from Delish Knowledge to film a Facebook Live demo to support a few of our favorite businesses, Fresh Thyme and Kura! Fresh Thyme Farmer’s Market is a Midwest based grocery shop that has healthy, fresh and organic options. It’s a favorite of mine and I can’t wait for them to open up more stores here is St. Louis.

As for their relationship with Kura, Fresh Thyme sells Kura in their stores and for the month of July they are giving out a package of strawberries for each large packet of Kura you purchase. Kura is a protein powder for your smoothies! It’s GMO and gluten-free, with natural ingredients and no added sugar. It comes in three different flavors, so be sure to check them out.

Making Smoothie Recipes:

When talking with Kura we discussed my love of smoothies, smoothie bowls, and this craze of nice creams. Nice cream is basically a thicker version of a smoothie that can be scooped like ice cream. It’s healthy, tasty, and you can definitely add protein powder to it to make it more of a meal! So since we only we able to make the smoothies in store for you all, we thought making recipe cards with the nice cream instructions would be helpful! However, if you weren’t there you couldn’t get the physical card. So, what better way to share them with you than the internet!

Below is one of the two nice cream recipes based around strawberries (the other linked below). I did a Tropical Strawberry nice cream and a Hibiscus Strawberry Coconut nice cream. They make enough for a whole container of ice cream. If you want less, just divide ingredients.

Ingredients for Strawberry Hibiscus Nice Cream:

  • frozen strawberries
  • coconut milk
  • dried hibiscus petals
  • Greek yogurt
  • KURA vanilla powder

How to make Strawberry Nice Cream:

  1. Heat coconut on stove over medium until lightly bubbling. Add dried hibiscus leaves and let steep for 6-8 minutes (liquid should be purple).
  2. Strain liquid with a sieve into the blender on top of strawberries. Blend all ingredients in a until smooth.
  3. Scoop out and eat directly or place in a loaf pan, cover with plastic wrap or parchment paper (make sure it is touching the top of the nice cream).
  4. Freeze overnight, scoop and serve.
