Maple Vanilla Sweet Potato Nice Cream (Vegan, WFPB)

Nice cream has become one of my favorite treats to enjoy while following a plant based diet. And with us being in the heart of the holidays I thought I would share my new favorite nice cream recipe as a part of my WFPB holiday recipes! Growing up I was known to go back for seconds and thirds when the ice cream was brought out, and would proceed to spend the rest of the night feeling bloated, wishing I would have passed on the ice cream. I just wish I would have known sooner that I could enjoy the creamy deliciousness of ice cream without the incredible amount of fat and regret that so often accompanies it! When I discovered nice cream I was still skeptical thinking that it was nothing more than a dream to have a healthy fruit or starch based frozen treat taste anything like the ice creams I grew up eating. But then I thought why not make ice cream using my favorite food, the sweet potato! And with some ingenuity I was able to find some flavors and combinations of nice cream that have been a hit for my friends, family and whole dinner parties! Today's nice cream recipe is made with sweet potatoes as the base. I have cooked the sweet potatoes using my instantpot recipe. I then peel and cube the cooked sweet potatoes before I freeze them overnight or for atleast 5-6 hours. I have a ton of other nice cream recipes on my site if you want to head over and check them out. I really enjoy adding different variations of spices to my nice creams, so feel free to get creative and if you go ahead and give this recipe a try let me know what you think and share a picture on my facebook page of how it turned out for you.

Here's what you will need!


  1. Place all of the ingredients into the food processor

  2. Process together for 60-90 seconds (stopping and scraping the sides down if needed)
