How to make Nice Cream + Chocolate Nice Cream Recipe

Breakfast | June 22, 2015 | By

Saturday morning was perfect for two reasons: 1) getting up after a well needed lie-in, pulling back the blinds and seeing that the sun was splitting the rocks! And 2) when I opened the freezer to move things around, I spotted hidden at the bottom, lonely and unloved…frozen bananas! Sunny day + frozen bananas means one thing in my house – na na nana nice-cream!

Making nice cream is incredibly easy and you don’t need an ice-cream maker, just a food processor. A blender will do the job as well, it just might take longer depending on how powerful your blender is.

All you need are frozen over-ripe bananas and a splash of whatever milk you prefer. That’s the blueprint for nice-cream. Anything you add after that, is up to you. That’s how easy it is. And you can have as much fun as you like experimenting with your own flavours. The recipe I’m sharing is one of my favourite ways to eat nice cream – half is plain and half is chocolate, topped with coconut and fresh strawberries.

Ingredients
  1. 2 large over-ripe frozen bananas, chopped.
  2. A good generous splash of milk of your choice.
  3. 1/2 - 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  4. 1 tbsp nut butter (optional)
Instructions
  1. Put the frozen bananas into a food processor, add a splash of milk of your choice and blend until there are no lumps left in the bananas. Add more milk if needs be. Remember to scrape down any mixture that gets stuck on the sides. You can add vanilla extract for some extra flavouring and nut butter will make it that little bit more creamy.
  2. Serve immediately.
Notes
  1. This serves 1 person, double recipe for each additional person.
