Nice Cream Three Ways

This nice cream uses just a few simple ingredients to create a healthier version of your favorite summertime treat — no ice cream maker necessary.
Three different flavors of nice cream — cherry chocolate chip, pina colada, and chocolate peanut butter — in containers.
  • Makes 1 serving
  • Prep Time 15 minutes
  • Cook Time 0 minutes


  • 1 ripe, frozen banana, cut into 1-inch quarters
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened nut milk, such as almond or coconut

For Cherry Chocolate Chip

  • 1/2 cup frozen cherries
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 2 squares chocolate with 85 percent or higher cocoa, chopped

For Piña Colada

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk (in place of almond milk)
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1 tsp. coconut extract

For Chocolate Peanut Butter

  • 1 tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tbs. natural peanut butter


Make sure your banana is fully frozen, having been in the freezer for at least six hours. Place the banana and a pinch of sea salt in a blender or food processor. If you're making a flavored ice cream, add the other ingredients to the blender or food processor. Blend on low, adding your choice of nut milk until the mixture reaches your desired consistency.
Once the ingredients are fully incorporated and the mixture is smooth, you can either eat it immediately or scoop it into a container and freeze until ready to eat.
