  • Prep-time: / Ready In:
  • Makes 3 cups nice cream + 1½ cups granola

This pretty-in-pink nice cream gets its rosy hue from grapefruit and strawberries to create a decadent dessert that’s equal parts creamy and refreshing. A homemade maple-pecan granola adds delicious crunch to the frosty treat and transforms this simple recipe into an eye-catching way to end the evening. Feel free to add a dollop of Aquafaba Whipped Cream to make this dessert extra fancy!

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
  • 2 cups pink grapefruit supremes
  • 2 cups strawberries, hulled
  • ¼ to ½ cup unsweetened, unflavored plant-based milk


  1. In a large skillet cook oats and pecans over medium 3 to 4 minutes or until toasted, stirring occasionally. Stir in 2 tablespoons of the maple syrup, the flaxseed meal, and ½ teaspoon of the vanilla. Cook 2 to 3 minutes more or until well coated and golden brown, stirring constantly. Spread on foil; sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Let cool. If necessary, break into clusters.
  2. In a food processor or high-speed blender combine grapefruit supremes, strawberries, ¼ cup milk, the remaining 1 tablespoon maple syrup, and the remaining 1½ teaspoons vanilla. Cover and process until smooth, stopping and scraping sides of container as needed and adding milk as needed to make creamy.
  3. Transfer to a 2-quart baking dish. Cover; freeze 4 hours or until firm. Break up mixture with a fork; place in food processor half at a time. Process 30 seconds or until smooth. Transfer to a freezer container. Cover and freeze 6 to 8 hours or until firm. (Or freeze mixture in a 1½- to 2-quart ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s directions. Transfer to a freezer container and freeze 2 to 4 hours.) Let stand at room temperature 5 minutes before serving. Serve topped with granola.

supremes are sections of a citrus fruit with all of the pith and peel cut away. Hope that answer your question.

This looks delicious. What is a “grapefruit supreme”? Is that a particular brand or kind of grapefruit?
