Homemade Raspberry banana soft serve ice cream also known as ‘nice cream’ is the best dairy free ice cream!
Two ingredient ice cream is crazy good and completely healthy! Raspberry “nice cream” as it’s called is made from frozen raspberries and frozen bananas, and that’s it! I’m not sure where the name ‘nice cream’ came from…I’m guessing it’s because it’s dairy free so it’s nice to our lactose intolerant and vegan friends or because it’s made completely from bananas. Either way, I’m a fan of this cute named healthy frozen treat!
It’s crazy what happens when you blend frozen bananas, it’s just like the consistency of soft serve ice cream! We blended the bananas up first and then added the frozen raspberries. You could also do just one ingredient ice cream too!
It’s fun to watch the color change from pale yellow to light pink! Having a good blender really helps, I sure love my Blendtec Blender when we make this. Even with a heavy duty blender like the Blendtec, when you’re blending anything without liquid, you can overwork your blender. To not over heat or overwork your blender, slice the bananas small and then use the end of a wooden spoon (or hard plastic spoon) to crush the frozen bananas in the blender. This will really help your blender blend them up quicker with less start and stop times in between.
You can either eat it like soft serve right away or transfer it to a pan and freeze for a few more hours to have more of a scooped ice cream to put on an ice cream cone like we did here!
It’s the perfect healthy summer treat!
Raspberry Nice Cream
Make healthy and delicious raspberry banana ice cream aka Nice Cream.
- 6 frozen bananas sliced
- 1 cup frozen raspberries
Slice the frozen bananas. Add them to your blender. Using the end of a hard plastic spoon or a wooden spoon, crush the bananas down into the blender.
Start blending, stopping along the way to assist your blender with air pockets by moving the banana mixture down to the bottom of the blender.
Blend until smooth.
Add the frozen raspberries and blend until smooth again.
You can eat it as is in it’s soft serve consistency or freeze it for a few hours (with plastic wrap over the top) and scoop it out onto a cone or into a cup. Enjoy!
