OH. MY. WORD. Where have these things been? If you don’t know it already, I am obsessed with nice cream or nicecream or whatever. It’s the idea of making frozen mashed bananas trick your body into thinking it is eating ice cream only it’s not.
Believe me, if you do this right, your body will take your frozen bananas and all of your troubles will disappear. Ok, not really. But, isn’t that why we eat ice cream? Next time, try this instead.
First, check out my Chocolate Strawberry Nicecream recipe from a few weeks ago. It’s crazy good. Now, it’s time to make a whole new kind of popsicle, the nice cream popsicle.
Frozen bananas (sliced-about half a freezer bag full)
Anything you’d like such as strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, almonds, peanut butter, sunbutter, chocolate chips, sprinkles, etc.
Dixie cups (large)
First, grab your ripe bananas and start slicing. Throw them in the freezer for a few hours or overnight. I love this, I have bags of frozen bananas in our freezer so I can grab them whenever I have an ice cream emergency.
Blend the bananas in a food processor until you reach desired consistency. You can place a little topping in the bottom of one of your dixie cups or simply pour in the banana mixture and top with toppings or add in the middle. I melted the chocolate and poured it on top, I also did a few where I added it to the middle.
You can make flavored banana nice cream by mixing any type of berry or adding cocoa powder if you’d like a chocolate taste.
Once you have the pop exactly as you want it, place your popsicle stick in the center and freeze. You’ll want it to freeze at least 2 hours, it does take a little while for it to set. Then, simply tear off the cup and you’re good to go!
