3 Nice Cream Recipes to Get You Through the Summer

The sky's the limit when it comes to nice cream. Here are just a few options to try this summer!

Summer comes and often times good eating habits go out the window. You want to indulge, but don't want your hard work to take a hit. Here are a few nice cream recipes that will satisfy your ice cream craving, without all the excess calories.

Basic Banana Nice Cream

This is probably one you've seen before and it's very simple. You need the following:

  • 2 large bananas, sliced and frozen
  • 1 cup plain soy milk or another variety of milk such as almond
  • 2 tablespoons of creamy almond or peanut butter
Place ingredients in a food processor and blend. Stop and stir two to three times to make sure the mixture is smooth and creamy. You can dish it up immediately, or place it in the freezer and have it later. Makes two servings.
Coffee Flavored Nice Cream
Coffee and sweet treats go so well together! Try this version to change it up for a sweet, frozen treat.
  • 2 bananas, sliced and frozen
  • 1/4 cup of cashew butter - can use almond or peanut butter for more flavor
  • 1/4 cup of cold brew coffee - found in stores already made
  • 1 teaspoon of coffee extract
  • 2 Medjool dates - optional
Place ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Put in a freezer safe container and freeze at least 30 minutes before serving. Makes two servings.
Peanut Butter Banana
Another great combination that never gets old.
  • 3-4 frozen bananas cut in half
  • 1/2 cup of almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • chocolate chips optional
Place bananas, almond milk, maple syrup and peanut butter into a food processor and blend until smooth. Stop and stir occasionally to make sure everything mixes well. Transfer to a freezer-safe container and add chocolate chips if you like. You can eat it immediately, or place it in the freezer first.
