Easy Vegan Ice Cream Recipe: Dr. Pepper Style!

Dr. Pepper Vegan Ice cream

“Nice Cream” has been all the rage for a little while now, but I’ve never seen a recipe like the one my sister Anna created, so of course I wanted to share it with you!

My sister’s boyfriend had a ravenous sweet tooth but, like many people on the standard American diet, struggled with stomach and digestive issues.


This vegan desert both cured his cravings and was kind to his body. The recipe is particularly awesome because it takes just a few minutes to whip up, uses only a few ingredients, and can be eaten without an ounce of guilt.


Dr. Pepper Vegan Ice Cream (as seen in my blog)


Servings: 2


  • 2 frozen bananas (very ripe is best)
  • 1/2 cup frozen dark sweet organic pitted cherries
  • 1/4 cup Silk vanilla creamer or nut milk of choice (for the healthiest version) 
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao powder or nibs




Combine all the ingredients in a high speed blender and process until smooth and creamy (you will need to use the accelerator tool to help get the blending process started).


After blending the ice cream, feel free to layer in your favorite additions to add variety. Coconut flakes, vegan chocolate chips, even almond or peanut butter make for an extra special treat! 

If you have any vegan sweet treat recipes we’d love for you to share them in our Empowered Vegan Life Facebook group.
