Craving a pint of Haagen Daaz? We got you — this healthy “nice cream” recipe makes eating ice cream something you can feel good about without the dairy, gluten, and refined sugar of a traditional bowl of ice cream you may be craving.
Here’s what you need to make it:
The basic recipe:
- 2 frozen bananas
- 1 tbsp almond butter
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- Splash of unsweetened almond milk
- For topping: chopped walnuts, pecans, raw cacao nibs, shredded coconut
If you want more of a chocolate kick, add in 2 tbsp raw cacao powder.
Craving more of a tropical kick – use one frozen banana + 1 cup frozen mango or pineapple
Looking for a berry blast – use one frozen banana + 1 cup frozen berries of choice
Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until the mixture becomes soft-serve ice cream consistency.
Top with whatever toppings you desire (preferably not M&M’s!) and enjoy!
