Simple! Healthy! Vegan + paleo friendly “nice” cream! This is naturally sweet and does not contain any added sugars!
It is so simple to whip up your own small batch of ice-cream at home that is healthy and good for you! This ice-cream has the consistency of soft serve and will make about 2-3 servings.
You will need:
- 2 frozen bananas
- 1 chilled overnight can of cream of coconut or full-fat coconut milk (the cream of coconut will be creamier)
- 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
- and any toppings you desire.
- a food processor of blender
Place your frozen bananas in a food processor or blender along with the cream of coconut or coconut milk (CAUTION: do not use any liquid from the can just the coconut), and a teaspoon of vanilla. Blend this up completely. This may take awhile with the frozen banana chunks. Also serve immediately. If you decide to freeze your batch the texture will get a bit icy so I prefer to serve right away.
Here I have my vanilla nice-cream topped with a blackberry & wine reduction sauce. You can find the recipe on my blog (just swap out the raspberries for blackberries).
Other examples of what you can do with this recipe are shown below. Get creative!
If you have a craving for chocolate use some about 1 tablespoon of cacao powder.
Fruit craving? No problem! Add any fruit you desire. In the photo below I used fresh strawberries. My favorite fruit mix in is dragon fruit (also known as pitaya. Those fruits can get a bit pricey so try a powder. A little bit goes a long way and still has incredible health benefits.
Does your diet need a boost in fiber? Try chia seeds in your next batch of nice cream.
Wanna pack in some protein? Top it with a nut butter. Try this one from Nuttzo.
