Nice Cream

Have you heard of nice cream? It's the new plant based DIY ice cream which is super easy to make and customize. Make it with your kids and let them pick the flavors. The possibilities are endless!

Nice Cream Base:
-3 bananas
-non-dairy milk of choice (coconut milk, almond milk, etc) We prefer unsweetened vanilla coconut milk

Dice bananas and put into freezer for at least a few hours, preferably overnight. Put 1 frozen banana into a Cuisinart mixer or a blender. Pour in 1/2 cup of non-dairy milk and blend until smooth. 1 banana will yield 2 servings, double the recipe if needed.

Once the mixture is smooth use it as a base to create your own flavors. Here are a few of our favorites:

Honey Roasted Peanut Butter Nice Cream
-1 large spoonful of peanut butter + 1 small spoonful of honey. Add to banana mixture and blend until smooth. Freeze

Chocolate Nice Cream
-1 spoonful of cocoa powder or hot cocoa mix (+ more to taste) + 1 spoonful of honey/maple syrup + 1 small spoonful of vanilla. Add to banana mixture and blend until smooth. Adjust ingredients to your taste. Freeze

Strawberry Nice Cream
-1 large spoonful of strawberry jam (+ more to taste) + 1 small spoonful of honey . Add to banana mixture and blend until smooth. Optional: stir in coconut flakes. Freeze

When ready to eat, thaw the nice cream on the counter for 15 minutes to get soft.
