What Is Nice Cream ?

 
The healthy, cruelty-free spin on traditional ice cream, nice cream is an easy frozen dessert made with bananas and your favorite fruit blended into a creamy soft serve. Ironically it doesn’t even taste like bananas as they pick up all the other berry and fruit flavors they are blended with.
 

Protein powders can be added if desired together with your favorite toppings to make for a nutritious and super tasty breakfast bowl. 

 

This Pitaya Mango Nice Cream is Everything:

 
refreshing
delicious
raw
healthy
dairy-free
oil-free
gluten-free
plant based vegan.
 
There’s no need for added sugars at all, maybe a hit of vanilla if you insist.

You don’t even need an ice-cream maker.

 

There are 2 ways to make it:

 
  1. Use a powerful blender like the Vitamix.  
  2. Use your food processor
 

Easy like Sunday morning kids! How good does this look ?!

Print Recipe
Prep Time:5 minutes
Total Time:5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3.5 cups frozen banana (3-4 large bananas)
  • 1/2 lb frozen mango (cut into chunks)
  • 3.5 oz frozen dragonfruit purée
  • 1 tbsp coconut milk or lime juice (optional)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1 tbsp basil leaves -for garnish

Instructions

  • Add the frozen mango, bananas and dragon fruit to a powerful blender (I used my Vitamin) or food processor together with 1 tbsp of coconut milk (or lime juice) and vanilla. 
  • Process on the frozen dessert setting in the Vitamix and use the temper to help push the frozen fruit into the blades. You might need to process 1.5 times to get the creamy smooth texture you love.
  • If using a food processor make sure to pause and scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. 
  • At this point you’ll have a soft serve ready to enjoy sprinkled with some fresh basil or your favorite toppings. To harden it up to a thicker texture you can just pop your nice cream in the freezer for 30 minutes or so.

Notes

  • Nice cream can be stored in a glass container with a lid in the freezer, just remember to bring it to room temperature for about 20 minutes before serving.
  • Nice cream too runny ? It just means you probably added too much liquid or over blended it. Just pop in the freezer for about 30 to 45 minutes for a perfect creamy texture.

  1. My girls were over the moon with this ice cream for their pj party and are already planning their next one. Of course they asked for the awesome pink dessert and I’m happy to oblige. Don’t have a Vitamix but it works great in a big food processor . Thank you for the inspiration Florentina!
