Top 5 Nice Cream Recipes


Banana Ice Cream. Also known as Nice Cream and boy it sure is nice. If you haven’t seen any delicious creations floating around instagram then you have got to be living under a rock (kidding- kinda;)). Nice cream is so trendy these days- especially in the vegan community. Have you noticed that most vegans are OBSESSED with bananas? We can thank Freelee the Banana Girl for that. We can also thank the cheap price and versatility of bananas for their popularity in the vegan community.

Nice cream is the perfect dessert, meal, or snack. I love making nice cream because you can customize it to your own tastes/ cravings. I love making a variety of different types of nice cream bowls, and today I am sharing my 5 favorite recipes with you.

All of these start with the same base of super ripe frozen bananas, and enough almond or cashew milk to blend. The fun comes with the different add ins and toppings!

Up first:

  1. Blueberry-Vanilla Nice Cream


To make this variety blend

1-4 frozen bananas

1 tsp vanilla extract

almond milk (unsweetened vanilla is what I used)

pureed frozen blueberries (for the pretty swirl)

2. Cinnamon-Chocolate Swirl Nice Cream


1-4 frozen bananas (or 10 or a zillion- however many you want #liveyourlife)

1/4-1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

almond milk

chocolate swirl topping: agave syrup + cocoa powder – I used 1/2 tbsp agave + 1/2 tbsp of cocoa powder. Play around with the ratios to find the desired sweetness/ consistency you like.

3.  Chocolate Nice Cream Smoothie Bowl

You have probably seen this recipe on my blog already as a smoothie bowl, but it is so thick it also kind of doubles as nice cream.


Here’s another ugly photo of chocolate nice cream. You can probably tell why I originally went with the first photo…..


1-4 frozen bananas

almond milk

1-2 tbsp cocoa powder

1/2 scoop vega protein & greens (chocolate or vanilla)

Fun toppings like buckinis, shredded coconut, and oats.

4. Raspberry- Mango Nice Cream


A tropical take on traditional nice cream.

To make this blend:

1-2 frozen bananas

2/3 cup frozen mango

1/2 cup frozen raspberries

enough coconut water to blend (or almond milk)

Fun fruity toppings: I topped mine with frozen peaches and fresh sliced figs!

5. Berry Nice Cream


This bowl is extra fun with lots of toppings!


1-2 frozen bananas

1/2 cup frozen blueberries

1/2 cup frozen strawberries

almond milk/cashew milk

Fun toppings: sliced banana, frozen berries, shredded coconut, etc. !


I don’t know if I can even choose a favorite kind of nice cream out of all of these. The blueberry vanilla and chocolate swirl are probably a close tie :).

Why nice cream combo are you dying to try?

    Very very nice! Sorry for not understand the recipes completely but do I just mix everything together then put it in the freezer? Thanks!

    1. Hi! You can let the bananas ripen, peel them, then freeze then and pull them out when you want to use them! Then add all of the ingredients to a high powered blender/ food processor and mix everything together!
