My obsession with raspberry nice cream lately is uncontrollable. I don’t know if it’s the pinkness, the fluffy texture or my sweet tooth, but I’m hooked. Nice cream is so delicious and takes very little effort to make. For those of you who aren’t nice cream junkies, nice cream is frozen bananas whipped into an ice cream consistency. I thought I’d post a simple recipe I follow with some bowls of inspiration, nice cream 3 ways. 

This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, vegetarian, vegan and Paleo.

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 frozen bananas  
  • 1 cup of frozen raspberries  
  • OPTIONAL: juice of half a lemon

Method:

I find it’s easiest to blend your bananas first then add the rest of the ingredients – the raspberries and the lemon juice. I use a food processor but you can use a blender.

Tip: Semi-thawed bananas can help blend easier, 5-10 minutes out of the freezer is enough. Ripe spotted bananas yield the sweetest nice cream. 

The 3 different toppings I used were:

  1. Chocolate oat granola (dairy free chocolate melted with oats), chopped walnuts, raspberries and “chocolate sauce” (maple syrup mixed with cocoa powder)
  2. Mango, blueberries, whole grain gluten free cereal, a chopped Brazil nut & hemp seeds
  3. Whole grain gluten-free cereal, a chopped Brazil nut & hemp seeds
