Nice Cream!!! Why Haven't I Tried this Before???

Many of you may already have tried this amazing creation, but I guess my hubby and I have been living under a rock! If you're keeping count of calories - or not - nice cream is a delicious, creamy treat!


Hubby follows a WW plan, and we're always looking for really good-tasting, low-point treats. He enjoys WW fudge bars and Halo ice cream. I've tried them, and although I like the taste, they make my stomach puff up like a balloon. I think it's due to the high prebiotic fiber content in the treats. Needless to say, I no longer eat them. It's just not worth the tummy pain.


Why not keep regular ice cream on hand for myself, you may ask? #1 I don't want to subject my love to the extra temptation sitting in the freezer, and #2 although I'm still small, it's harder to stay that way with each passing year.


The answer? Nice cream!!!

The main ingredient in nice cream is BANANAS!

The key to having easy-to-blend, smooth nice cream is slicing your bananas relatively thin before freezing them. Freeze for approximately two hours on a parchment-lined baking pan.

Thus far, we've tried four flavors - though I'm quite sure there are endless flavor options limited only by your imagination!


Mocha Nice Cream

2 large bananas (frozen in thin slices)

1 cup vanilla sugar-free almond milk (use a little less if your bananas are small)

2 tsp instant coffee (this amount can also be adjusted according to your love of coffee)

1/8 cup mini chocolate chips (plus a few more for topping)

1 tsp Splenda


Put all ingredients in a strong blender and blend until smooth. Serve right away for soft-serve consistency (which I prefer), or freeze for later enjoyment. Note: after freezing, I let my nice cream sit on the counter for 10 minutes or so to soften up a bit.


Chocolate Nice Cream

2 large bananas (frozen in thin slices)

1 cup vanilla sugar-free almond milk (use a little less if your bananas are small)

2 Tbsp cocoa

1 tsp Splenda

A few mini chocolate chips for topping


Put all ingredients in a strong blender and blend until smooth. Serve right away for soft-serve consistency (which I prefer), or freeze for later enjoyment. Note: after freezing, I let my nice cream sit on the counter for 10 minutes or so to soften up a bit.


Blueberry Nice Cream

2 large bananas (frozen in thin slices)

1 1/4 cup vanilla sugar-free almond milk (use a little less if your bananas are small)

1 cup frozen blueberries

1 tsp Splenda

1 tsp vanilla extract


Put all ingredients in a strong blender and blend until smooth. Serve right away for soft-serve consistency (which I prefer), or freeze for later enjoyment. Note: after freezing, I let my nice cream sit on the counter for 10 minutes or so to soften up a bit.


Fresh Cherry Nice Cream

2 large bananas (frozen in thin slices)

1/2 cup vanilla sugar-free almond milk ( use more if using frozen cherries)

1 cup fresh pitted cherries

1 tsp Splenda

1 tsp vanilla extract


Put all ingredients in a strong blender and blend until smooth. Serve right away for soft-serve consistency (which I prefer), or freeze for later enjoyment. Note: after freezing, I let my nice cream sit on the counter for 10 minutes or so to soften up a bit.

All four flavors are so delicious, I can't choose a favorite!


Hubby has declared that nice cream is creamier that either Halo or WW fudge bars, and he likes it better (not to mention that it's much cheaper)! Even my son, Bart, who generally dislikes foods that are good for you, loves nice cream!


I hope you give these nice cream recipes a try, and please let me know what cool flavor combos you come up with.


Summertime is here, so enjoy some nice cream, and remember that kindness has the power to change the world!
