Nicecream: THE reason high speed blenders were invented! Mr. Mango gave me the greatest gift ever this Christmas- a Vitamix, and it has been a game-changer in the kitchen. Seriously, it has been worth every cent. Food prep has been simplified and my kids get to enjoy their daily dose of nicecream! Dairy free, it’s easy on little bellies, and makes the best after school snack EVER. I can’t wait for the warm days of summer spent with my little mangos by the water, capped off by a big bowl of this cool, creamy goodness.
For those of you without a high-speed blender, don’t despair! You can use the same ingredients as listed below (though the amount of frozen ingredients used will depend on your blender’s capabilities to crush frozen ingredients), adding a splash of liquid of choice to the bottom of the blender. Once blended, pour it into a container and freeze 1-2 hours and serve. *Note- for a creamy texture, use plant-based milk; if you prefer an icy consistency, use ice.
Ingredients listed will be specific to the nicecream I made pictured above (topped with raw shredded coconut), but you can change it up to satisfy your cravings. If you need further inspiration, you can check some great recipes on YouTube.
I hope nicecream soon takes its rightful place alongside watermelon, potato salad, and corn and the cob this summer!
2 frozen ripe bananas (in quarters)
1 ripe banana (unfrozen)
4-5 large frozen strawberries
1/3 cup frozen pineapple chunks
Makes 4 servings
Method: Blend all together in high speed blender, beginning on low, gradually increasing to high (using pusher, pressing fruit into the blade) until creamy and smooth. It will be the consistency of ice cream/frozen yogurt. Scoop and enjoy.
* Some fun topping ideas: raw shredded coconut, crushed almonds, berries, and chopped dates.
