This berry nice cream recipe features three awesome fruits as the base: mango, raspberries, and blueberries.

The mango mixes brilliantly with raspberries and blueberries for a nice cream that’s still creamy and super delicious.
Wonder what you’re getting with every bite of this berry nice cream? Let’s break it down!
- Mighty Mango Magic – Juicy mango is not only loaded with flavor but also boasts a huge assortment of nutrients! Mango contains polyphenols, which are plant compounds that function as antioxidants to protect your body from free radicals which can exacerbate chronic diseases. It also contains loads of vitamin C, which make a great choice for those looking for a less acidic source than oranges or grapefruit. Mangos also contain several B vitamins along with vitamin K, vitamin E, and vitamin A.
- Rockin’ Raspberry – Like mango, raspberries are a serious source of vitamin C and also contain a good amount of vitamin K and manganese which aid in bone health. They are also a good source of fiber, which helps the body maintain healthy digestion. On the brainier side of things, raspberries help counter oxidative stress, which is a factor in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Their flavonoids help to improve coordination, memory, and mood—woo hoo!
- A Boost of Blueberry – Blueberries are not only adorable but are so good for you! Loaded with antioxidants and vitamins like C and K, blueberries are among the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet! They have been found to improve memory in older adults and have also helped to lower blood pressure are LDL cholesterol. Did you know that blueberries are green when they first appear? They deepen to an eventual blue as they ripen!
