    Behold, Mighty Nice Cream

    It’s got all the melty goodness of ice cream but without the guilt because it’s made with frozen bananas instead of cream and sugar. Crafty! If you’re a vegan or you just fancy some ice cream but you’re trying to be good, whip yourself up some nice cream and dig in.

    Toppings

    As you can see, we’re into berries and fruit on our nice cream, but if you want to be a bit more indulgent… you know what to do. Chocolate, caramel and everything else is welcome on top of a scoop or two of nice cream.

    The Heroes of the Hour: Bananas

    Bananas are pretty high in protein. And when you freeze them and then blend them with a milk of your choice (we’re using almond) they’re creamy and sweet, just like ice cream. They don’t need any extra sugar or honey. We’ve got some great topping recommendations down below.

    Tip: Make sure you take the skin off your bananas before you freeze them, because once they’re frozen, that skin is NOT coming off.
