Wild Blueberry Nice Cream is a better-for-you ice cream using few ingredients and no added sugar

If you’re like me and you have a sweet tooth and you want to reach for something that’s not going to derail your weight loss, look no further than this Wild Blueberry Nice Cream (aka better-for-you ice cream).

I chose Wild Blueberries for this particular recipe, but you can use your favorite berry. I personally like wild blueberries for a host of different reasons. 

I go into more detail about the health benefits of wild blueberries over at my Lavender Haze Superfood Smoothie recipe (yes, named after Taylor Swift’s famous song!), but I’ll summarize them for you below.

Wild Blueberry Nice Cream is a lower sugar alternative to your regular ice cream

Wild Blueberries Health Benefits

Wild Blueberries are smaller and contain less water than regular cultivated blueberries you’d buy in the produce department. They have a more intense flavor (tangy and sweet) and they hold their shape better when cooking with them.

We always hear that blueberries are full of antioxidants. Well, did you know that Wild Blueberries contain twice the amount of antioxidants per serving than cultivated blueberries?

They also contain twice the fiber and less sugar than regular blueberries. 

Wild Blueberries are also full of vitamins, minerals, micronutrients (Iron, Vitamin C, folic acid and manganese).  In fact, they contain eight times more manganese than cultivated blueberries. 

There my new favorite superfood and I use them in my smoothie every day!
