The luscious strawberry nice cream base is paired with a warm strawberry-apple compote and crunchy toasted almonds.

Feel free to switch up the toppings by adding some homemade Aquafaba Whipped Cream to really take this recipe to the next level of yum.


Strawberry Nice Cream Sundaes


  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  • 8 oz. fresh strawberries, hulled and halved (1½ cups)
  • 1 apple, cored and chopped
  • 2 teaspoon tapioca starch

  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup (optional)
  • 3 bananas, peeled, frozen, and sliced
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
