Let’s Scream for Nice Cream

Nice cream is a healthier ice cream made from bananas instead of cream. And let's face it. Some days we need something cold and creamy to eat.

Watch this video on an easy way to make Neapolitan ice cream:

And you can see the full recipe at the Food Network.

My Only Concern

Bananas are healthy. They're full of potassium which helps your body regulate blood sugar as well as bloat. It helps your body absorb calcium.

But it is pretty sweet. A few scoops is like eating a few bananas. So if you try this, keep it simple with the servings.

Crazy Flavors

Ok, lecture's over.  Now let's look at all the flavor combos you could do.  For the most part, if you make it with cream, you can make it with bananas.

Here's some other ideas:

  • Blueberries
  • Chocolate mint
  • Pina colada
  • Coconut
  • Coconut Lime
  • Chocolate chip (hey, why not put in some of those mini-chips)
  • Orange
  • Cinnamon
  • Coffee
  • Blackberry
  • Cherry

You can use avocado to increase the creamy factor without impacting the flavor. And it's OK to use frozen fruit for your nice cream.

Other Paleo Frozen Treats

There are ways other than bananas to make frozen treats.

You could make your own Fudgecicle (wait, can I use that without the TM?)

I'm also very fond of Orange Creamcicles.
