Spirulina Nice Cream

Today I would like to introduce you to Nice Cream, a yummy ice cream made with a frozen fruit (usually bananas) base and other add-ins! Its my favorite healthy ice cream because it’s quick and easy to prepare, with only one main ingredient required.
You simply blitz pieces of frozen fruit in a food processor or high-speed blender and the end result is a whole-food ice cream that is rich, creamy, and luscious enough for a special occasion (birthday party, anyone?) yet light and easy enough for an any time 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 o 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.
This refreshing frozen treat gets a healthy boost from spirulina, which is a type of blue-green algae full of nutrients like protein, Vitamins B1, B2, and B3, and Iron. (Giving it superfood status!) The spirulina also gives this nice cream its gorgeous green color.
You can satisfy a nice 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!

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe bananas, sliced, frozen
  • 1 cup mango (or pineapple) chunks, frozen
  • Splash of milk of choice
  • 1 teaspoon spirulina powder or ½ cup spinach or kale

Toppings

  • Banana slices
  • Cacao nibs
  • Hemp hearts (seeds)

Instructions

  • Let the bananas and mangos thaw a bit (just 5 minutes or so), which will make them slightly easier to blend, then throw them along with the milk and spirulina powder into a food processor or high speed blender.
    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, add your toppings, serve, and enjoy!
