Nice Cream Tested
I don't know about where you live, but it's been very hot and humid in the Greater Toronto Area this last little while. So I decided to indulge my sweet/savory cravings by testing some banana nice cream. I am a big fan of chocolate peanut butter ice cream, I tested the chocolate peanut butter nice cream recipe by Goodful.
All you need for this recipe are the ingredients, a good food processor or blender, a container, and a freezer. The video by Goodful uses a food processor, but I decided to use my blender.
The recipe is as follows:
CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER NICE CREAM
3 frozen bananas*
1/4 milk of your choice (I chose almond milk)
2 Tbsp peanut butter
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
*Bananas do not need to be chopped and frozen in plastic. If you want to reduce plastic use, bananas can be frozen with the peel on and then slightly defrosted for 5 minutes in cool water to help remove the peel.
Place all ingredients into food processor or blender.
Blend/process until smooth.
Pour contents into a bread pan or similar container.
Freeze 1 hour.
Serve and enjoy!
This nice cream recipe is easy to make, and surprisingly easy to clean up after. The texture is similar to ice cream, just a little more icy. The flavor is sweet and savory, just like any good chocolate peanut butter combination. On the whole, I would say this is worth the time and effort.
A note regarding the "cooking" process: If your mixture was still very fluid when going into the freezer, it will need to set for longer than one hour.
I hope you find this helpful and that you enjoy your cool summer treat! Cheers!
