Enjoy a delicious, healthy bowl of awesome Blueberry Nice Cream for a lovely summer treat!
This awesome Blueberry nice cream is the dessert of dreams! It’s vegan, dairy-free, easy to make (you just blitz it in the food processor), and super duper-healthy. The consistency is like a fruity gelato or soft serve. You can of course add toppings to your heart’s content, such as chocolate chips, shredded coconut, granola, or some drizzled nut butter 🙂
Is Nice Cream healthier?
Absolutely, YES! Nice cream is beautifully nutritious and filled with delicious healthy fruit whereas regular ice cream is loaded with cream, eggs, artificial flavoring, and sugar. Yuck! Not what you need to live a healthy, happy existence! With nice cream, you can have all the flavor and none of the nasties!
Does it taste like bananas?
You can definitely taste the delicious bananas, they act as the base, then you flavor them with whatever fruit you choose. In this case blueberries.
Why we LOVE Nice Ceam!
- Healthier Ingredients:
- Nice cream is typically made with simple, wholesome ingredients, with frozen bananas as the base. This means no artificial additives, preservatives, or high levels of added sugars often found in traditional ice cream.
- Natural Sweetness:
- The sweetness in nice cream comes from ripe bananas, providing a natural and satisfying sweetness without the need for excessive amounts of refined sugar.
- Dairy-Free and Vegan:
- Nice cream is naturally dairy-free and vegan, making it suitable for individuals with lactose intolerance or those following a plant-based diet.
- Rich in Nutrients:
- Bananas are a good source of essential nutrients such as potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B6, and dietary fiber. Nice cream retains these nutrients, offering a healthier treat option.
- Customizable Flavors:
- Nice cream is incredibly versatile, allowing for a wide range of flavor variations. You can add ingredients like cocoa powder, berries, nuts, or extracts to create different flavors and textures.
- Texture Similar to Ice Cream:
- When blended properly, nice cream achieves a creamy and smooth texture similar to traditional ice cream, providing a satisfying frozen dessert experience.
- Lower in Calories:
- Compared to many traditional ice creams, nice cream tends to be lower in calories, making it a lighter option for those watching their calorie intake.
- Quick and Easy to Make:
- Nice cream is easy to prepare at home with minimal ingredients and equipment. All you need is a blender or food processor to whip up a delicious frozen treat.
- No Churn Required:
- Unlike traditional ice cream recipes that may require an ice cream maker, nice cream can be made without any special equipment. It’s a simple and accessible option for home cooks.
- Using ripe bananas that might otherwise go to waste contributes to a more sustainable approach to food consumption and reduces food waste.
- Great for All Ages:
- Nice cream is a family-friendly treat that can be enjoyed by people of all ages, from children to adults. It’s a guilt-free dessert option that satisfies sweet cravings.
- Ideal for Allergies:

How do you store Nice Cream?
Nice cream is delicious (and I believe at its best) and eaten immediately. However, it can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. Simply transfer it to a tightly covered container and pop it in the freezer. It will harden like a rock! Be sure to take it out of the freezer for at least 15 minutes before serving to soften up.
