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
- 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!
- 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!
