Chocolate Raspberry Nice Cream Swirl with Almond Butter

My exam food + nice cream obsession

These little swirls have been my lifesavers for the last years when I have been studying for my law degree. I literally can’t image my life without this chocolate raspberry nice cream anymore.

When I have to work for long hours, then there are two things that have helped me. First one is matcha latte and the second one is nice cream. When I have had one of those two things, then I always feel like I can keep going for hours.

Sweet tooth + no store ice cream 

Since I never buy ice cream or chocolate from the store, then this quick dessert has been my kind of quick chocolate. However, a few years ago I would probably say that this isn’t sweet enough. Over the last five years I have been working on my sugar addiction and now I can say that this swirl is perfectly sweet.

You might already know that I’m a big sweet tooth. This nice cream satisfies my sweet tooth completely. If I could choose only one frozen dessert that I could eat the rest of my life, then I would choose this nice cream.

Coconut Yogurt:

  • 4-5 tbsp organic natural coconut yogurt (unsweetened*, dairy-free, made out of coconut milk)

  1. Looks delicious and sounds simple to make! I have a sweet tooth, too, but I need to stay away from dairy. Sounds like a great way to satisfy both cravings.
