Keep Cool and Healthy with “Nice” Cream

Are you an ice cream lover that’s looking for a healthier alternative to your favorite after-dinner treat? Look no further than “nice” cream! 

“Nice” cream is a plant-based, dairy-free, and guilt-free alternative to traditional ice cream. Made from frozen bananas and other natural ingredients, it’s a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth while also getting some of the important nutrients found in healthy foods like fruit. Whether you’re a seasoned vegan or just looking to incorporate more plant-based options into your diet, “nice” cream is a treat you won’t want to miss, which is why we are going to tell you everything you need to know to make it at home. 

What is “Nice” Cream?

“Nice” cream is simply a healthy, vegan version of ice cream. It’s made with a base of frozen bananas and uses fruit and other natural, wholesome ingredients to add flavor and variety. Since this sweet treat doesn’t use any added sugars, dairy, or additives, it’s a great option for anyone looking to make their diet a little healthier without having to completely cut out ice cream, but it’s a particularly great option for those who are vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, or sugar-free. Since “nice” cream is made with fruits and other natural foods, it not only can help curb your sweet tooth but will also help provide your body with many of the important nutrients that it needs to continue to function properly. As an added bonus, most “nice” cream recipes call for only a few ingredients and are easier to make than you might think!  

The process of making “nice” cream is rather simple and only calls for a few basic ingredients. As we’ve already mentioned, most “nice” cream recipes contain bananas because they give this dessert a nice custard-like consistency that you would find in traditional ice cream. With that being said, bananas aren’t the only fruit that makes a great base for your “nice” cream—mangoes, apricots, and peaches are all great options, especially if you are looking for your “nice” cream to taste more like soft-serve ice cream.  

Whatever fruit you choose, make sure it is ripe, peeled, and frozen before you begin mixing your “nice” cream. Cut up the fruit and blend it in a blender or food processor until smooth, adding almond milk or yogurt if needed. If you like more of a soft-serve texture, serve your “nice” cream immediately. If you’d prefer a thicker texture, simply place your “nice” cream blend in the freezer for 1 to 2 hours, then serve and enjoy! 

Nice Cream Variants

Once you’ve mastered the art of making basic “nice” cream, it’s time to branch out and explore ways to spice it up and take it to the next level. One of the easiest ways to do this is by adding some of your favorite fruit to the mix. Things like cherries, apples, nectarine, grapefruit, watermelon, blueberries, strawberries, or any other fruit that satisfies your taste buds. 

If you want to take it up a notch, you can add extra flavor by adding vanilla, chocolate, matcha, cinnamon, or other spices to your mixture. Want to change the texture a little? Try adding some crushed almonds, peanuts, chia seeds, macadamia nuts, or walnuts. Last, but certainly not least, you can also give your “nice” cream a nutritional boost by adding superfoods to it. Try adding superfood powders like acai, cacao, turmeric, maca, or organic Wild Microalgae® to your blend to your “nice” cream recipe. 

Make Your Own Nice Cream

Ready to make your own “nice” cream to enjoy after dinner tonight? Let’s get started!

Equipment:

  • Food Processor or high-speed blender to mix ingredients together. 
  • A freezer, which is where this process will begin and end. You will use it to freeze your bananas before beginning and to freeze your “nice” cream afterward if you want a thicker consistency.   

Ingredients: 

  • 4 cups sliced bananas, frozen 
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons of almond milk (or preferred dairy-free liquid)

Directions: Place your frozen banana slices in your food processor or blender with 2 tablespoons of almond milk. Blend on high for 1 to 2 minutes until thoroughly mixed. If your food processor or blender is having a hard time blending the frozen bananas, add another 1 to 2 tablespoons of almond milk. Once mixed, you can eat it immediately or place it in the freezer for 1 to 2 hours to get a thicker consistency.
