Have you heard of nice cream yet? This healthy ice cream is also called nana ice. It is so simple to make and needs just two ingredients: bananas and (non-dairy) milk.
It is also absolutely versatile. If you like a vanilla nice cream just add some ground vanilla to the basic ingredients. If you like fruity ice cream, add a handful of frozen strawberries, raspberries, cherries, blueberries, mango or whatever you like to your frozen banana and blend it together.
To prepare this healthy snack peel 1 – 2 ripe bananas, cut them into pieces (you don’t have to, if you have a sharp knife to cut the frozen bananas) and freeze them. I always have some frozen bananas in the freezer to have something healthy on hand to deal with sudden chocolate cravings.
Speaking of chocolate: I like my nice cream as chocolate nice cream. Or with chocolate, peanut butter and caramel sauce. Some might call it snickers nice cream.
Put the frozen banana slices in a food processor (I like this one for making nice cream) and process them with some non-dairy milk. If you prepare bigger batches of nice cream, you can also use a power blender (such as Vitamix).
As a topping you can use anything you like: chocolate sprinkles, chopped nuts, chocolate- or fruit sauces or homemade chocolate granola. Just to name a few things.
Enjoy this healthy snack!
