You may be wondering, what is nice cream? While opinions differ a little bit, nice cream is basically a frozen dessert, similar to ice cream, that doesn’t contain any dairy, eggs, or sugar and is often made with frozen fruit and natural sweeteners like dates and bananas. Some “purists,” I guess you might call them, consider nice cream to be ice cream made from frozen bananas, but I like the expanded definition better because all whole foods plant based ice creams are healthier than the real thing, especially if you’re lactose intolerant like I am.
Some of these recipes are no-churn, and some are made with an ice cream freezer – but they’re totally worth the extra effort. Need an ice cream freezer? Check out this one. I’ve had this freezer for years, and I seriously love it! You don’t need any ice – just freeze the core, and you can have fresh-churned ice cream (or nice cream!) any time you please!
