Two Ingredient Ice Cream or Nice Cream

Nice CreamJust Two Ingredient Nice Cream:

If you have read my other blog posts, you must know by now that how I alter recipes to make them healthier. Healthy in my opinion is not just low-calorie, but it should be nutritious and loaded with flavors too. When I had diabetes,(have you read my story yet? If not read it here) I craved for all sweet things in the world. Those decadent frozen custards are my all-time favorites, which I could never eat during my diabetes phase. So, the alternative was Nice cream.

It is an ice cream in its nicer version. If that intrigues you, then jump straight to the recipe by clicking the recipe jump button. If you want to read more about it and its health benefits, enjoy reading and don’t forget to check the step-by-step guide.

Nice Cream:

As I already told you that it is an ice cream but in its nicer version, you can have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner..mmm even during snacking. Did I mention breakfast? This ice cream just contains frozen banana and some natural ingredients for that extra flavor. Banana..ughh! I felt so when I thought to try to recipe.

But trust me, this is so good that you will never regret. When the frozen bananas are slowly blended in a high-speed blender, they become creamy, smooth and decadent just like the real ice cream. Add some peanut or almond butter, mix in some toppings such as fresh fruits, s’mores as in this case and chocolate, and you have a best tasting ice cream or Nice cream ready to be enjoyed.

Variations:

Make it chocolate flavored: add a scoop of chocolate protein powder and 1tsp of almond butter

Coffee and cream: 1 tsp to 1 tbsp of instant coffee, 1 tbsp almond milk and 2 tbsp coconut cream

S’mores: Vanilla extract, toasted marshmallow and chocolate chips with mini graham cracker toppings

Berry blast: frozen berries, sugar-free strawberry syrup and fresh berries for toppings

Chocolate & Peanut butter: Well, just some Reese’s PB cups and chocolate syrup for topping

You can build your own flavors too by adding supergreen powders, superfood powders and even those vibrant colored açaí berry, spirulina and matcha powders. In my berry blast version, I have added some açaí berry powder to get my daily dose of superfood. The Smores nicecream doesn’t have any extra ingredients.

Health Benefits:

You are ditching cream, extra calories and refined sugar. That is certainly a happy news. If you ask me about the taste, it does taste little banana-like unless you add other flavors in it. However, I love to enjoy this creamier version of banana than a sugar-loaded ice cream. More details on its nutrition are in the nutritional benefit section.

These sugar-free marshmallows are perfect choice for the s’mores nice cream. However, I used some mini mallows as toppings. Click on the image to visit the website and buy.

Since the time I own this machine, I am in love with it. Apart from its high-speed blending features, what I love about this blender is its Auto-IQ feature. That means no residue when you are blending something in it. Remember those grassy residue you see after every smoothie blend, that’s not going to happen with Auto-IQ. The machine uses its sensor to blend the food really well to extract the nutrients for better absorption after consumption. Click on the image to buy.
