How to make vegan nice cream

The recipe card at the bottom of the page has the full list of ingredients with measurements and instructions.

This amazingly simple dessert lives up to its name ‘nice cream’ because it’s not only healthy but super easy to make.

Start with bananas. For this version of nicecream, they can be frozen or fresh. Personally, I use fresh because the rest of the fruit is frozen, and having a fresh banana just makes the blender run smooth and easy.

For other nice cream flavors like my Chocolate Banana Nice Cream, bananas are the only fruit, so they need to be frozen. But, for this one, either frozen or fresh works just fine.

Put the banana and other frozen fruit into your blender or food processor and blitz them until nice and smooth. You might need to add a tablespoon of water or plant milk to help get it nice and creamy.

My favorite blender is the Vitamix 5200 because it is so powerful, it can blend anything. I actually own two of them because I use them in the Food for Life classes I teach for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.

Serve it immediately for a soft-serve consistency or place it in a freezer-safe container and freeze for at least a couple of hours for a scoopable consistency.

  1. I make this all summer long. Can’t see any source for saturated fat in a banana or frozen berries. Also, almond milk or water doesn’t carry saturated fat either. Please help me understand where it came from.

    1. Hi Judy- You’re right, there is no saturated fat. The number ‘1’ goes with the total fat listed. The letters and numbers are just too close together, I agree.
