What exactly is nice cream?
It's almost ice cream, hence the name n-icecream. Except that here, no dairy, egg, fat or added sugar… To make this nice raspberry banana cream, you need two ingredients : banana and raspberries. That's all ! A vegan ice cream, healthy and low in calories.
The secret of this ice cream is the use of bananas ripe then frozen, which when mixed keep their creamy structure like ice cream. Crazy, isn't it?
Some people add water to it and make it more liquid, but I don't, I prefer to keep its creamy texture, which really looks like an ice cream.
What you will like about this nice raspberry banana cream recipe
Flavor : For this nice cream recipe, I combined banana and raspberry. The banana is very ripe and therefore very sweet, the raspberry therefore brings its refreshing tangy side. It works particularly well, you'll see.
Texture : Bananas provide a lot of creaminess, and keep a nice texture. Raspberries provide water so you have to be careful not to add a lot (see my recipe below). The more raspberries you add, the more liquid the texture will be.
Difficulty level : ultra easy, in 5 minutes your ice cream is ready. You need a blender or food processor to mix frozen fruit, that's it.
Tips for making this recipe a success
You have to use ripe bananas, peel them and cut them into small sections. Then, they are placed in the freezer, in a freezer bag or at least airtight container. 24h before to make the nice cream.
I bag the bananas up to several weeks in advance: as soon as I have ripe bananas at home (and they don't end in Banana Bread). That way, the day I want to make a nice cream, it's already ready.
Just before making the ice cream, I take out the bananas approximately 10/15 minutes. They will soften very slightly, enough to be mixed without ending up in glitter.
To get the ideal consistency, I first mix the bananas alone and then add the raspberries. I do not hesitate to scrape the edges of the bowl with a spatula to have a consistency very smooth.
How to store the nice cream?
The nice cream can be eaten directly, in this case it is very melting. If you want to be able to make scoops of ice cream, like in my photos, place your container in the freezer for 30 minutes.. Its texture will be just as smooth.
If you have any nice cream left afterwards, you can store it easily several weeks in the freezer. As this ice cream does not contain raw egg or dairy product, it is easy. It can be kept in its container covered with cling film or in an airtight container.
