Ice Apple Kheer or Nungu Kheer is a variety of Kheer usually prepared with Ice Apples and Milk. My version of Ice Apple Kheer stands unique and tastes outstanding with 'No Milk' which makes it a perfect vegan version of Nungu Kheer.

Who doesn't love Ice Apples? The natural jelly that cools our body and yummifies the taste buds is what we need unconditionally in the Summer. My kiddo is an extreme lover of Ice Apples, and there is no doubt that this super tasty kheer is her favourite dish. Sure to say, this recipe would become everybody's favourite since the taste is just addictive enough to convince anyone.

Moreover, the Ice Apple Vegan Kheer would be the healthiest option during Summers that uses fresh coconut milk, a handful of nuts, and our deliciously 'Jelly-cious' Ice Apples. Let's know the super-duper health benefits of Ice Apple Vegan Kheer.

Do you know the health goodness of Ice Apples?

  • An excellent body coolant.
  • Cures stomach aches and digestive issues.
  • Ice apples are loaded with carbohydrates, fibre, protein, calcium, and vital vitamins.
  • These low-calorie fruits can help you lose the weight. 

What's more? The goodness of Ice Apples along with the goodness of coconut milk and nuts can do huge benefits to our body's health. Addedly, the taste blend of Ice apples, coconut, and creamier nuts take the dish to the next level unquestionably. 

The preparation needed would be the fun job of peeling the Ice Apples, and an easy job of preparing the coconut milk. If the preparation is done, the blending and mixing would be done in just 2 minutes. So, the easiest Ice Apple Kheer recipe with the truly unbeatable flavour profile is here just for you.

What makes the Ice Apple Kheer Creamier?

  • Go Nuts while adding Nuts! The Cashews and Almonds are the agents that make the kheer yummy and creamy.
  • Addedly, the jelly-like Ice Apples are blended along with the nuts to make it richer and creamier in the way it has to be.

Jaggery is the best sweetener that blends well with the other ingredients of the dish. I have added only the first coconut milk to achieve the perfect richness and creaminess that my family wants it to be. You can choose to add the second coconut milk to thin out the kheer a bit more.

The tits & bits of crunchy nuts here & there; the flawless flavour of the topped saffron strands; the 'jelly-cious' feel of the chopped Ice Apples; and the creamy texture of the blended nuts & coconut milk. What's more to say? These are more than enough to cope up the scorching summer and to satiate the taste buds.
