Nice Cream

Nice Cream

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!

    Das ist mein absolutes Lieblingseis. Mein Freund und ich machen uns das gerne immer mit Erdnussbutter, obwohl die anderen Variationen auch sehr lecker klingen. Ich bin so begeistert von diesem Rezept da es genau wie Bananenbrot super ist wenn die Bananen mal zu braun sind. Und vor allem hat man es immer auf Vorrat (sofern man gefrorene Bananen hat).

    Für mich kommt einfach nichts an dieses Eis heran da es so unfassbar cremig ist. 🙂

    Zum Glück hat unser Mixer eine Crush-Eis-Funktion. Dadurch hat es genau den richtigen Schmelz.

    Kann das Rezept nur jeden weiter empfehlen.

    Mit Sojajoghurt schmeckt es sogar ganz leicht nach Frozen Joghurt. ^^
