Plum Nutrition Facts and Benefits

Plums are extremely nutritious with a variety of nutrition benefits.

  • Rich in Vitamin C. Plums are a good source of vitamin C, as each small fruit contains 7 percent of the daily suggested intake. Vitamin C is an antioxidant, so it can help protect your cells from free radical damage. Vitamin C also helps produce carnitine, norepinephrine and collagen.
  • Rich in Vitamin A.  Plums also contain vitamin A, and a small fruit provides about 8 percent of the recommended daily intake. Vitamin A promotes healthy vision, reproduction and bone growth, among other benefits.

Plum Nutrition Facts and Benefits

Ingredients

Plum Mixture:

  • 9 med-small plums, halved and de-stoned
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp tapioca powder

Ice Cream Mixture:

  • 1 cup cashews, pre-soaked and strained
  • 1 cup unsweetened dairy-free yogurt
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground cardamom

Instructions

  1. Combine all plum mixture ingredients in a medium-small sauce pan and bring to a light boil on medium-high heat. Once the mixture begins to bubble continue simmering for 10 mins, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and cool on a wire rack until mixture is at room temp.
  2. Combine all ice cream mixture ingredients as well as the cooled plum mixture in a high speed blender and blend until smooth (use your tamper if using a Vitamix to get smoothest results).
  3. Transfer into a container of your choice and chill for 5-6 hours or overnight. Thaw out on the counter before serving and enjoy!
