What’s not to love about a delicious bowl of ice cream on a hot summer day? Or really any day for that matter. Well, if you’re a lover of ice cream, you’re definitely going to be a fan of our Chocolate Nice Cream with Vanilla Swirl. All the delicious flavour of ice cream with the added bonus of it actually being healthy!!
If you’ve never had nice cream before you are in for a real treat! The base of nice cream is frozen bananas instead of cream, so you can eat way more, and it’s much easier to make. Don’t let the bananas scare you away. We promise our Chocolate Nice Cream with Vanilla Swirl is packed with so much flavour you’ll never miss the cream!
When we photographed our Nice Cream we used vanilla Oreos, but chocolate Oreos would be just as delicious. Feel free to sub in your favourite cookie or other topping instead, you really can’t go wrong here. Try strawberries, pretzels, anything you like!
Happy nice creaming!
Chocolate Nice Cream with Vanilla Swirl
- 1/4 cup Cashew Butter
- 1 tbsp Maple Syrup
- 2 tbsp Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp Almond Milk
- 8 Bananas Frozen
- 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
- 1/2 cup Oreos Crushed
Place an 8-inch loaf pan into the freezer.
In a medium size bowl whisk together cashew butter, maple syrup, vanilla and 2 tablespoons of almond milk. Set aside.
In a high speed blender add the bananas, ½ cup almond milk and cocoa powder. Blend until completely smooth and combined. You will need to stop and scrape down the sides, multiple times.
Using a wooden spoon, gently mix the crushed Oreos into the banana chocolate mixture.
Remove loaf pan from the freezer and pour ½ of the chocolate banana mixture into the pan. Next drizzle on ½ of the cashew butter mixture and repeat until everything is layered in.
Place in the freezer for 1-2 hours, until completely frozen through.
Serve and enjoy!
