Ice cream recipe: Banana “Ice Cream”

Often times, the New Year starts with a good detox. Many people feel horrible after all the holiday goodies they’ve consumed over the last few months. Except, wait, those holiday treats are soooo good!

I know I’m not the only person who misses them when January starts, I also know it’s hard not to slip up on the sweets when you’re trying to make a change in your diet. If you feel this way, then this “ice cream,” (or nice cream, as many people like to call it) is the answer for you.

Nice cream is an extremely healthy alternative to regular ice cream that won’t leave you feeling bad about all the sugar you just consumed, or just overall bad if dairy and sugar makes your body scream at you like me. Honestly, nice cream might actually make you feel great.

This recipe is flourless, gluten free, dairy free, and vegan. Nice cream typically has a frozen banana base, and frozen bananas blend into an ice cream texture like a dream. Then, it can be flavored any way you like. Anyone can do it, and you can get creative with nice cream and experiment with your favorite flavors.

I call this one the Chunky Monkey “ice cream,” like the Ben & Jerry’s kind. But not horrible. Enjoy!
