It's hot. You want to cool off but the fat and calories in ice cream don't make it a figure-friendly treat. That's when a nice cream can come to the rescue. Creamy, frozen and delicious, nice creams will satisfy your craving for ice cream without any of the guilt.
Made from frozen fruit, nice creams are completely vegan and fat free. They can be topped with traditional ice cream toppings like nuts, berries, sprinkles and even coconut.
How To Make Nice Cream
Bananas are an excellent base for nice creams because they result in a creamy, rich frozen treat. Frozen pears work well too. The trick is in slicing the fruit and freezing it solid before you turn it into nice cream.
The best part of the process? You won't need an ice cream maker or fancy equipment. Just a food processor or high-speed blender will suffice (a regular blender will get stuck and require the addition of liquid, which will thin out the nice cream).
To make the nice cream just drop the frozen chunks of banana into the food processor and blend until a gorgeous creamy paste forms. Now top it with your favorite ice cream toppings. Or blend with berries, vanilla extract, cocoa powder or coconut flakes for a yummy tropical twist.
