Nice Cream! A Super delish Ice Cream Alternative

by Kelli Parisian July 31, 2018 1 Comment

 

 

We've had a hot summer here in Southern California. When it's hot out, nothing sounds better than a nice cool bowl of ice cream for dessert. Don't you agree?

Recently, I needed a yummy dessert for a dinner party we were having. I searched the internet for a cool summer dessert, that was dairy and sugar-free and company good!

I discovered Nice Cream!

There are a couple ways to make Nice Cream and the sky's the limit when it comes to things you can add to the recipe. Because I eat a plant-based diet, I chose a simple 3 ingredient creamy mixture infused with plump, fresh blackberries in season right now. 

There is a certain amount of technique involved with the making of Nice Cream. The recipe itself is super easy to make. I'm sharing technique tips I've learned along the way.

What you'll need--

High-Speed Blender -  Vitamix, Blendtec, Ninja, etc.

Ice Cream Dishes

Space in your freezer :-)

Recipe:

6-8 large ripe bananas

1 can Coconut Milk (not light) - You will use ONLY the cream on the top of the can. Approx. 1/4-1/3 cups

3/4 cup berries of your choice - reserve a few for topping the Nice Cream. I use raspberries in video.

Tip: Use banana's that are only beginning to spot. You don't want overly ripe banana's or the nice cream will be too sweet and banana tasting. You don't want green banana's either or the Nice cream won't be sweet enough. The other tip is to freeze your banana's and fruit overnight. The Coconut Milk should be refrigerated for at least 4 hours too.

More tips: Right before you're ready to blend, take your banana's out of the freezer and let them sit for 5-10 minutes. Not longer. In the video I'm posting with this recipe, I let the banana's sit out 20 minutes and the consistency of the Nice Cream was not as thick and creamy as I would have liked it to be. 

Instructions:

After freezing banana's and fruit (and refrigerating the coconut milk) overnight, take bananas out of freezer and let "rest" 5-10 minutes.

Add to mixer on high, keep the bananas moving with the plunger or wooden spoon. When they are completely mixed, stop mixer, add cream from coconut milk, blend 10 seconds. Stop blender. Add fruit, pulse for 5-10 seconds. 

Immediately scoop Nice cream into individual bowls. Makes 6-8 servings. Top with a few reserved berries. Freeze 3-4 hours. 

Remove Nice Cream from freezer for 10 minutes before serving.

Healthy eating produces healthier skin and better aging!

Enjoy your delicious, guilt-free dessert!

What Causes Crepey Skin?

Crepey skin is one of those aging things that seems to appear overnight, even though we know it takes years to happen. It shows up under our eyes, on our neck, chest (decollete), and even on our arms.

See what people are saying!


My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
