Caramel Nice Cream

It’s not a secret: I LOVE banana ice cream. Banana ice cream, nana ice cream, and nice cream all mean the same thing: frozen bananas blended in a blender to create a healthy-yet-delicious treat. Nana ice cream is a miracle. I’ve been eating it every day this past week because I just can’t get enough! It’s okay because it’s a healthy addiction. Riiiight??? Here is the nana ice cream I had this morning. I had to share it because it was just so delicious! Excuse the not-so-great lighting; it’s a miracle I even got pictures before it was in my belly.

Caramel Nice Cream

serves 1

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1-2 tablespoons nondairy milk
  • 2 tablespoons white chocolate peanut butter
  • 2-3 tablespoons caramel (recipe below)
  • a handful of walnuts

Add the bananas, milk, and peanut butter to a high-speed blender or food processor. Blend. If using a Vitamix, start at setting 1 and increase until the mixture is blended. Use the tamper to press down and mix the bananas. Add the “nice cream” to a bowl and mix in the caramel with a spoon. Top with a sprinkle of walnuts!

Caramel

  • 17 dates
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 2 Tablespoons almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Blend dates in a food processor. When they’re tiny chunks, add the other ingredients. Blend and enjoy! This makes a lot of caramel, and I only used a few tablespoons on the nice cream. You can dip apples and other fruit into the rest of it, or you can make caramel apple pie! IMG_0857

ENJOY the glorious miracle of nana ice cream.If you’ve never made it before, RUN (not walk) to your blender and make it STAT!

    Oh Ellie, you make this look and sound so delicious (even though I don’t really like peanuts). Mmmmm caramel, I need some of that 🙂 I never get as far as mixing it with nice cream though as it all gets eaten far too quickly! 😛 🙂
