NICE CREAM MILKSHAKES

What is Nice Cream?

Nice Cream is “ice cream” made from bananas. That’s it. You freeze bananas and then throw in varying ingredients depending on what flavor you want and viola! A healthier ice cream for your kids or yourself. Does this milkshake taste just like ice cream? No, it’s made from a banana with other ingredients to mask the fact that it’s a banana but: 1). It’s healthier for you, 2). It’s a great alternative if you want a milkshake treat but are also looking for something allergen friendly, and 3). It’s pretty darn close. Instead of giving you a normal milkshake recipe, I wanted to do something different and creative. A recipe you could feel proud of when serving to your family for an occasional treat.

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Coat the top of a glass with melted chocolate and then immediately cover with sprinkles of choice. Using the leftover melted chocolate, “glue” your cookies onto the glass. Freeze for 5 minutes or until the chocolate sets.
  2. Place all of the ingredients (except for the chocolate chips if the flavor you desire has chocolate chips in it) into a high-speed blender until smooth and thick. Add more ice if you your milkshake is too thin; add more dairy free milk if your milkshake is way too thick. Adjust sweetness according to your preference.
  3. Pour into the prepared cup.
  4. Cover with dairy-free whipped cream, sprinkles, cherry, cookies (whatever you desire) and serve with a straw.

NOTES

*Depending on how ripe your banana is and/or how sweet you prefer your milkshakes, you might need to add more or less maple syrup.
