Sugar-Free Banana Nice Cream
Posted by Andrea Nakayama
This Sugar-Free Banana nice cream is a refreshing vegan treat for anyone looking for a healthy, whole-food alternative to store bought ice cream. Why else do we love it? It’s free of artificial ingredients and takes just ten minutes to make. Hint: don’t forget to freeze the bananas beforehand, and a food processor is the only piece of equipment you’ll need.
Yields one serving.
- 2 bananas
- Peel fresh bananas and break them into chunks
- Freeze the banana chunks for 24 hours.
- Process the frozen banana chunks in a food processor until smooth and creamy. It takes a good few minutes for them to break down fully.
- Add any other desired ingredients. (see variations below)
- Process again or mix by hand to incorporate.
Add when blending (per single serving):
- Mint Chocolate Chip:
- 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
- 4 squares chocolate, grated
- Fruit and Nut:
- 1 teaspoon chopped, dried fruit
- 1 tablespoon chopped nuts
- a handful of your favorite berries, like strawberries, blackberries or blueberries
- For a richer flavor, use overripe bananas.
- If the nice cream is too thick, add a tablespoon or two of alternative milk or water.
- Serve immediately or freeze for later.
Sugar-Free Banana Nice Cream is a delicious and healthy frozen treat, perfect for anyone looking to reduce or eliminate refined sugar, dairy, and artificial ingredients from their dietary plan. Not only that, it’s quick and easy to make, with endless customization options. Next time you’re looking for a sweet treat, ditch the ice cream and reach for nice cream instead!
