Shockingly Simple

All you need to start your journey to healthy ice cream are two frozen ripe bananas. Nice cream is fairly simple to make and it’s worth the little effort it takes. (For more in-depth instructions and different flavor, recommendations visit The Clean Life.) If you’re looking to have a creamier product feel free to add your favorite milk substitute. For instance, unsweetened almond milk is always a good choice. However, use liquid sparingly because you might end up with a smoothie.

Vegan + Gluten-Free

How do you make something dairy-free and creamy? The secret to nice cream is frozen bananas. Bananas are naturally creamy and sweet. When blended, frozen bananas provide the creamy consistency we’re all familiar with. In addition banana’s natural sweetness stops the need for any added sugars. However, if you’re looking for something a bit sweeter, add any fruit you like.

Almost Too Pretty To Eat

Not a huge fan of bananas? Nice cream does rely on bananas for its texture but you can customize its flavor quite easily. For instance, toss in some frozen mangoes and pineapple to create a refreshingly cool treat with a tropical twist. You can also adjust its nutritional value. For example, add some chia seeds and pepita seeds to get a healthy dose of protein while adding some texture. The possibilities are only limited to your personal preferences. Create works of art with color variation and vibrant toppings.
