I scream. You scream. We all scream for…nice cream? So maybe that’s not how the saying goes, but this summer, it should at least. Today we’re providing you safe entry into the world of healthy ice cream. Nice cream is an alternative to traditional ice cream. It has the same texture but is healthier and filling. Can you say win-win-win?
If you’re confused on what “nice cream” consists of, let us break it down for you! Warning: Falling in love is highly likely.
+ Nice cream is a mixture that consists of a base ingredient of bananas. If familiar with smoothies, then you know they provide a creamy base layer that is perfectly pleasing to the palate.
+ Bananas are also highly versatile since they have a pretty bland taste. What does this mean? You can get creative with what you add, of course. Whether that be cocoa powder or peanut butter, making this recipe sweet or salty is your call.
+ Unless you add a crazy amount of sugary items, the nutritional content of nice cream stacks up nicely against its counterpart. It has less sugar per serving than ice cream but is equally tasty.
+ The final reason (and the best) to love it? If you have any dietary restrictions that make you unable to enjoy regular ice cream, you can finally add this chilled treat back on your menu of options!
