This recipe is actually so easy to make, and it results in a delicious treat! It’s perfect to eat on a nice sunny day. Over the weekend, the father was nice and I really felt like ice cream. No need for an ice-cream maker – I just made nice cream instead, with just 3 ingredients and a food processor. I went and bought a bunch of bananas and berries and froze them.
When you put the bananas in the freezer, make sure you peel and slice them (I put whole bananas in my food processor and it broke a piece 😐). Once everything was frozen, I just blended it up. If it’s not blending well, add a little bit of milk (I used almond milk). Only add a little, because you want it to be a thick consistency, like ice cream. I accidentally only put in 2 bananas, which is why the pictures look more like a smoothie. It still turned out great though. I just put it in the freezer so it hardened a little. It’s important to serve this right away, or it will melt. If you wanted, you could just add more liquid and this would make a great smoothie! Since this is not really ice cream, if you put it in the freezer for too long it will freeze rock hard, not cream soft like ice cream. This recipe ended up making a lot more than I expected, so if you want to you can half the recipe.
To make nice cream, you really only need frozen bananas. You could eat it just like that, or from there add your own ingredients. Some common ingredients I’ve seen people add are berries, nutella, & peanut butter. For toppings, add anything you want, like coconut flakes, chia seeds, or chocolate chips!
I was wondering why it’s called “nice” cream. Any ideas?
