You may have never heard of it before or it may sound a little crazy to you, but Nice Vice uses part sweet potato milk in our vegan ice cream base. Our vice cream wizard, Jenn, thought of the idea while experimenting with new flavours and ingredients.
Now what made us decide to use this particular ingredient in our vice cream? Sweet potatoes have many health benefits that keep our vice cream delicious and nutritious.
As implied in their name, sweet potatoes are sweet. Our vice cream needs less sugar because sweet potatoes act as a natural sweetener. Plus, sweet potatoes contain sugars that slowly release into the bloodstream making it a healthy energy source that won’t spike your blood sugar.
Gimme Some of Those Vitamins and Minerals
Sweet potatoes are chock-full of vitamins and minerals. They are high in carotenoids like beta carotene, which improves your vision and makes you more immune to diseases.
As well as containing carotenoids, sweet potatoes are high in Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, iron, magnesium, and potassium. The health benefits of sweet potatoes are overwhelming, which is why they are our go-to ingredient for our vice cream.
