Vegan Nice Cream

[images][image]Mint Chip Nice Cream[image]Vanilla Nice Cream[image]Strawberry Nice Cream[image]Chocolate Nice Cream[endimages]You only need one ingredient to make raw vegan ice cream (aka “nice” cream): a frozen banana.

Honestly, you can blend a single or combination of any frozen fruit, but you may get a flaky texture. That’s why the most popular fruit-of-choice for this treat is a frozen banana. The high pectin content delivers a rich, custard-like, gooey, creamy consistency… just like ice cream. Note: bananas should be VERY ripe, chopped and un-peeled before freezing.

Enjoy a raw vegan version of your favorite ice cream by adding other ingredients and a little bit of nut milk. Here are 4 healthy nice cream recipes of America’s favorite flavors. Each serves 1-2 people.
