Cool Down This Summer With Nice Cream

At the end of a long, hot day, there’s nothing better than something sweet to cool off with. Instead of traditional ice cream, try something new by making your own sweet treat at home! With a few simple ingredients and a blender or a food processor, you can whip up your own nice cream creation. Nice cream, a dairy-free version of ice cream made with frozen bananas, is a great option for satisfying your sweet cravings without the high amounts of sugar.

With a creamy and light texture, nice cream is an easy treat to make and even easier to enjoy! Keep reading to learn more about how to make nice cream, as well as a few fun recipes!


1: Peel overripe bananas, slice and place in a container or large sandwich bag to freeze.


2: After they are fully frozen, put the bananas in a food processor or high-powered blender with a ¼ cup of your favorite liquid, such as almond or cashew milk.


3: Add in flavors such as matcha or peanut butter for a fun twist!


After you have made your nice cream, spruce it up with a few fun toppings and mix-ins. For flavors to mix-in, try fresh fruit such as pineapple and strawberries. To top off your special treat, include toppings such as shaved coconut, sliced almonds or sprinkles to add some flavorful texture.

By including a few special add-on flavours, such as fruit and other sweets, you’ll give your nice cream creation the look and flavor of traditional ice cream, making it perfect for encouraging little ones to dig in!
