Calling all vanilla chai fans! This vanilla chai nice cream is the one for you. We recommend making the spiced pears a day ahead so that you can reserve and freeze the liquid to use in your nice cream (talk about no waste!) To create the creamy nice cream texture, we add macadamias to the chai spiced liquid, as well as a few medjool dates for a hint of sweetness. Then you simply need to blend the vanilla chai ice blocks with frozen bananas, add the poached pears for topping and voila. Easy and delicious! Ingredients
