Before you start thinking “oh, so it’s going to taste like my front yard?” Let me tell you that is not the case! The entire concept is blended fruit so, it’s going to taste like fruit not grass or dirt. 🙂
Ok, this is the first time I ever made NiceCream. I’m going to share it with you and play with it some more this week so I can show off some better versions. But, it’s so good that I thought it was worth sharing now.
The base of it is frozen, blended bananas. That’s it. That’s your ice cream folks. Take ripe bananas, cut them into chunks and freeze them. Then, blend them into an ice cream consistency. You can add coconut milk, almond milk or any of those things to make it more smooth if you’d like but you really don’t need to add any juice, water or milk unless you want to do so.
After you blend your bananas, you can add any other type of fruit you’d like either frozen or not.
For the version in the picture, it is one layer of blended frozen bananas, one layer of blended frozen mango chunks followed by another layer of frozen bananas. The reason why I kept it mostly banana is because my husband loves bananas.
In a perfect world, those brown chunks you see in the picture would be chia seeds or flax seeds. However, since it turns out I am a human, those are actually chocolate chips. They’re organic though if that helps. 🙂
Today, I’m going to make a blackberry version. It’s like a smoothie without the juice if you’d like to think about it that way. The end result is an ice cream taste that will blow you away and if you’re having one of “those” days, you can eat the whole thing and still fit into your jeans tomorrow! WOOT!
