Nice cream is a dessert consisting of bananas that are blended until soft and then frozen. Other ingredients, such as blueberries, can be added to the blended bananas. This blueberry nice cream caught my attention because I thought it would be a good way to cool down during these hot summer days and because I had a lot of blueberries on hand. I love this recipe because it’s a much healthier alternative to ice cream. Unsweetened almond milk is used in place of cream, making this dessert lower in fat. Also, there are only three ingredients: blueberries, bananas and almond milk. When I saw this recipe on social media, I was able to make it right away because I had all the ingredients already. I was also happy to use all the over ripe bananas I had. An important step in this recipe is to cover the exposed top surface since it prevents the formation of ice crystals on the top. My family enjoyed this guilt free treat so much and I am planning to make another batch using strawberries soon!
