Wild Blueberry Lemon Nice Cream with Edible Flowers

What is nice cream?

I have a big sweet tooth, so I’m always looking for healthier ways to get my dessert. I’m a big fan of nice creams. What is nice cream? It’s a vegan “ice cream” made from fruit and no added sugar.

I’ve played around with many varieties, such as chocolate nice cream and cantaloupe nice cream, and I recently set out to create a delicious wild blueberry banana version in a beautiful ultra violet hue.

A couple of years back, the Pantone color of the year was ultra violet! According to Pantone, ultra violet “communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.”

I can’t wait for you to try this forward-thinking, brilliantly hued, delicious wild blueberry nice cream!


You don’t need many ingredients to make wild blueberry nice cream:

Bananas: Frozen bananas help make this smoothie creamy.

Frozen wild blueberries: I chose wild blueberries for this healthy blueberry ice cream recipe because they’re a naturally sweet food filled with health-helping antioxidants—in fact, they contain more than double the antioxidants of cultivated blueberries!

Wild blueberries are also an excellent source of cholesterol-helping fiber and may benefit your heart health as well as lower your risk of cancer. 

Lemon: You’ll use the whole lemon in this recipe, including the juice and zest.

Dried edible flower petals: These are optional but make the nice cream so pretty! Floral ingredients are big this year, which is why I decided to add the dried flowers as a topping for the lemon banana ice cream.

They’re slightly crunchy, just like sprinkles, but aren’t filled with sugar! You could also use dried edible rose petals! The flower mixture I used combines rose, hibiscus, marigold, and cornflower—but you can use any dried edible flowers that you like!

Step-by-step instructions

How to make wild blueberry nice cream?

To make this summer treat (hello, blueberry nice cream recipe!), I combined frozen bananas with frozen wild blueberries, lemon zest, and lemon juice in a food processor. You can use a blender or food processor.

After the blueberry banana ice cream mixture was nice and smooth, I added it to a bowl (if you’d like a wild blueberry ice cream cone, you can also use a sugar cone) and topped it with a lemon wedge and dried edible flowers.

This blueberry lemon nice cream recipe is great for a casual night at home or a fancy dinner party. If you’re whipping it up just for yourself (like I did the other night!), you can freeze extra portions.
