This refreshing tart treat has only 5 key ingredients
- Grapes (seedless green, frozen)
- Simple Homemade Date Syrup
You'll also need ice for blending.
How to prepare this Margarita Nice Cream
Put all ingredients, plus ice, into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. I used a Nutribullet. If the ingredients jam up, stop, and remove the container from the base. Shake the contents and then return to the blender. Add water to make it more of a soft-serve texture. Top with a pinch of lime zest for more lime flavor (optional). Enjoy!
The sweetness comes from the frozen grapes and date syrup. At the same time, the avocado gives this dessert its creaminess. Fresh lime gives this a beautiful fresh tartness.
