Hobakjuk Nice Cream (Vegan-Friendly, GF)

Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links

Like Hobakjuk? Then you’ll love this Hobakjuk Nice Cream! And if you have no idea what then you need to head to this recipe, make it immediately, devour its glorious splendor, and meet me back here when you’re done.

Hobakjuk is perfect for meal prepping. It’s easy to make, filled with nutrients, and is the perfect comfort food in the morning. And, if you know me, you know meal prepping and I are bffs. Sometimes though, your bestie needs a makeover and it’s your duty as a best friend to do it!

Making over my meal prep is exactly what I did with my hobakjuk. This recipe is a great way to use up that last little bit of Hobakjuk in your fridge that you just can't bring yourself to eat. If you struggle with eating the same thing everyday, repurposing the dish can give it a fun and flavorful spin. It’ll also keep you from throwing out leftover food and reduce food waste.

For this dish, instead of warming it up like usual, I did the opposite and froze it in an ice cube tray! After a few hours, tossing it in the food processor with a handful of other ingredients resulted in the thickest, creamiest nice cream.

This healthy nice cream makes the perfect option for a nutritious dessert, breakfast, or snack.

I topped mine with the usual hobakjuk toppings saealsim and sesame seeds but feel free to go nuts! Literally throw some nuts on there! Granola! Yogurt! Fruit! Whatever you want! The toppings will also help make this hobakjuk feel like a totally new meal.

However you enjoy it, hot or frozen, hobakjuk is absolutely delicious.
