If you missed my cold brew + dark chocolate chip cookies, or my cold brew chocolate nice cream sandos (are you sensing a theme?), go back and drool over those delicious and easy vegan desserts right now.
To keep up with my training for the Rock Tahoe half marathon while traveling, I’ve been logging a lot of miles in the early mornings the past few weeks. And since I’ve been at altitude, I’ve been burning a lot more energy. I’ve been coming back to the house feeling absolutely worked and hungry and my usual breakfast routines just haven’t been cutting it.
Admittedly, I am not usually much of a sweet tooth but lately I’ve been craving cool, sweet treats morning, noon and night. I am convinced it has something to do with running at altitude or perhaps its due to chasing Colby around. Whatever the reason, I’ve been on a real kick (and I’m not complaining about it one bit).
We had a bunch of fresh strawberries up at the cabin so I first started experimenting with strawberry nice cream parfaits that I could guiltlessly eat for breakfast after a run (check out the recipe here), and then it dawned on me that I could likely do the same thing with cold brew.
So here you have it, Cold Brew + Chocolate Nice Cream Parfait – healthy enough to eat for breakfast, delicious enough to enjoy for dessert!
- 1 cup of sliced frozen bananas
- 1 tbsp peanut butter (or nut / seed butter of your choosing!)
- 2 tbsp Nuzest Coconut Coffee MCT Protein Powder
- 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1-2 tsp Cold Brew
- 1 tsp oat milk (or milk of choice – cashew, almond, or coconut milk would also work well!)
- Optional: granola for topping or layering (or both)
- Optional: chocolate chips for topping or layering (or both)
Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Place in a cup and top with granola and chocolate chips, if desired.
Ok – if you haven’t noticed by now, I’m OBSESSED with this Nuzest Coffee Coconut MCT Protein Powder. It’s great in cold brew smoothies, cold brew cookies, cold brew nice cream and so much more!

Yum! This looks SO good. Also, can you please teach me how to layer parfaits so they look good in pictures? 🙂

I feel like I’ve been hearing about nice cream all.over.the.place. recently – is it summer maybe? But I think this is the recipe motivation I needed

Cold Brew!?!? Why didn’t I think of that? Totally trying this next time I’m craving that coffee flavor. Yum.
