What is Nice Cream you may be saying to yourself?
Nice cream is a sugar-free dessert made by blitzing pieces of frozen fruit in a food processor or high-speed blender. The whole-food ice cream is rich, creamy, and luscious enough for a special occasion (birthday party, anyone?) yet light and easy enough for an anytime indulgence.
It’s called ‘nice cream’ rather than ice cream, just to differentiate the two. Nice cream is a super easy, take on traditional ice cream, yet made very differently.
You don’t need one of those special ice cream churning machines, you simply use frozen bananas, a splash of milk and some flavourings – that’s it!
It sounds too good to be true doesn’t it? Ice-cream just out of bananas – yeah right! About this little concoction, I cannot hold back. It IS amazing. You will need to keep going back and trying it and saying – that can’t be right.
It tastes like ice-cream and it is so damn good! This is definitely one for the recipe bible. You will be in awe of the creamy,fruitful deliciousness before your spoon even begins to melt into the bowl.
You can satisfy an ice cream craving guilt-free with this “nice cream“! Seems so simple, that it feels like you are cheating a bit…but to be honest – it’s delectable stuff. And let’s face it, why make it complicated when something this simple can taste insanely delightful!
Once you start making nice creams, you will stop buying store bought ice creams, the creaminess it has is nothing less than any ice cream and the plus point is, it is absolutely healthy!
Full of nutrition and fruit, here is another way of eating more good stuff.

  • 2 bananas, sliced, frozen
  • 1 13,5 oz coconut cream, full fat (solid part only) *see note below
  • 1/2 cup dates, soaked at least 30 minutes and drained
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon blue spirulina powder 


  • Note: Place the can of coconut cream in the fridge or freezer for at least two hours before making nice cream to allow coconut cream to separate.
    Open chilled can and scoop out the cream that has separated and set hard on the top. Save the remaining coconut water to use in a smoothie, to drink, or discard.
    Place all ingredients into a food processor or high speed blender and start blending on its lowest speed, then quickly increase to the highest speed, using the tamper to press ingredients toward the blades. Blend for 30 to 45 seconds or until smooth and creamy.
    You can eat the nice cream straight out of the blender if you like the soft-serve texture. For a firmer texture, spoon the mixture into a dish and set it in the freezer for about 30 minutes until it firms up. Then just scoop, serve, and enjoy!
    Serve straight away or freeze for later. If frozen, allow to thaw for 20 minutes to let it soften before scooping.
