Make this Delicious & Healthy Ice Cream Alternative at Home

 

Ever wonder what your favorite fitness bloggers are constantly eating to keep them happy and healthy and not hangry or surviving off of sad salads and protein? How do they resist the cookies right in front of them ( a talent I still have yet to master, I mean who can resist freshly baked chocolate chip cookies? *cough* not me)? To cure your sweet tooth, I’ve got the perfect solution! The solution is Nice Cream. Everyone goes crazy over this, so naturally I had to do some research and eat bowls upon bowls of this to see what the big fuss is over.

What is Nice cream, you may ask? Allow me to explain, Nice cream is a mixture of frozen bananas (and sometimes other frozen fruits) but it has the consistency of soft-serve ice cream. How cool is that? Healthy ice cream for breakfast, sounds like #breakfastgoals to me. The possibilities are endless when you can have any flavor nice cream for any and every meal.

Sounds delish, right?!  I am not a banana person but I love making this for myself in the morning. The banana takes on the flavors of the other fruits mixed in with it.  Other than being incredibly yummy, it is also super easy to make. There are countless ways to make this magic happen. The first and most popular methods seems to be simply through a food processor, sometimes people use blender and there is even a machine that does all the hardwork for you and that’s called a Yonanas machine. I tend to use the machine because it takes minimal effort in the morning and I am certainly not a morning person.

The recipe for this is simple and easy too. If you are planning on making this for yourself only, I recommend that you use up to 2 whole bananas (most time, I use 1). If you are looking to incorporate other fruits (which I highly recommend) you can add to about 1 cup of fruit. Then you blend until it your desired consistency.

Some Easy Recipes to Try: (All 1-2 Servings)

My Go-To Recipe:

1 Banana (cut in half, frozen)

½ Cup Frozen Pineapple

½ Cup Frozen Strawberries

Place items in food processor/ blender/ Yonana’s machine and blend until desired consistency.

Chocolate Peanut butter Nice Cream

2 Bananas (chopped & frozen)

2 Tbsp Peanut Butter

1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder

Place frozen chopped bananas in food processor/blender/Yonanas machine and blend until desired consistency. Then add peanut butter & cocoa powder, and mix well

3 Bananas (chopped & frozen)

3 Tbsp Raspberries

1-2 Tbsp Water

Place frozen chopped bananas in food processor/blender/Yonanas machine and blend, adding water, until desired consistency. Then simply add the raspberries and pulse until consistency is how you like.

    OMG I got a Yonanas a couple of years ago and went Yo-crazy! So yummy and totally healthy compared to regular ice cream which is one of my big cravings. Our machine broke and we never got around to replacing it but you have made me hungry so I might have to head to Costco and pick one up!

  • You should prrrrobably just move to the Caribbean Islands or something…you know, so you can get fresh tropical fruit for blogging purposes 🙂 I’m going to be all over these easy recipes! I crave ice cream in the summer, but my tummy is not a fan. Nice cream to the rescue! Thanks for posting!
