Healthy eating series: Nicecream!

img_6153

Nice Cream is an international icecream craze for good reason. It is wildly good for you and incredibly delicious. It’s made from frozen fruit and fresh fruit, blended until it is a creamy consistency, just like icecream.  Its main ingredient of frozen banana is the secret!

It has no dairy, and no gluten and can be vegan if you don’t add honey. You can make it anytime you get a craving and it’s ready in a few minutes. You can great fun being creative with different recipe variations each time you make it.

You can feed it to the kids any day and it is a win-win as they are happy to get icecream and you just gave them their vitamins for the day!

Our oldest daughter in Sweden told us about Nice Cream, then our younger daughter here started making it often after school as a snack. Luckily she shares it with us! The photos are of a recent batch she made with blueberries. Beautifully purple!

Frozen bananas are your base ingredient so buy them in bulk, quickly peel and chop up a bit and then bag and freeze. Then they are ready in the freezer anytime you get a Nice Cream craving!

Nice Cream: frozen banana and frozen berries are your base. Choose other ingredients depending on your mood! 

Place all ingredients in your blender and blend until smooth and creamy.

  • Base: frozen bananas – at least 2.
  • Base: some frozen berries (blueberries / raspberries / strawberries etc)
  • 1/2 cup to 1 cup of coconut cream, almond or soy milk to help the fruit blend
  • Fresh berries
  • Mango fresh or frozen
  • Some honey / dates / or dried cranberries for a sweeter taste
  • For chocolate Nice Cream simply use frozen bananas and cacao powder

 

Nice Cream sprinkles:

  • Coconut flakes
  • Chia seeds
  • Cacao nibs for some crunch

Enjoy your beautiful Nice Cream,
