We’re not totally sure when nice cream became a thing, but we hope this creamy frozen treat sticks around. Typically dairy-free and added sugar-free, this banana-based ice cream tastes really similar to the traditional stuff, but without the ingredients that can make you feel less-than-great after. (Hence the name, “nice cream.”) And, if you’ve never tried it before, this peanut butter chocolate nice cream recipe is the perfect gateway.

The addition of peanut butter and cacao powder masks any overtly banana-y flavor and also adds a creamy gelato-like texture. Plus, since it’s made with just four ingredients, it couldn’t be simpler to throw together — no ice cream maker required!

Ingredients

2 cups frozen banana pieces (about 2-3 medium bananas)

2-3 tablespoons of Earth Echo Foods Cacao Bliss

2 tablespoons peanut butter

1/4 cup plant-based milk

Directions

Add all ingredients to blender and blend just until smooth and creamy.

Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy immediately!

Nice Cream Recipe Notes for the Best Results

1. Use a high-speed blender — but don’t over blend.

To get the nice creamy extra creamy, you’ll want a high-speed blender. If the consistency looks too thick, add 1 tablespoon of milk, but be careful not to over-blend. You can easily end up with a (still very delicious!) chocolate-peanut butter smoothie.

2. Use high-quality ingredients.

There are only four ingredients in this recipe, so it’s worth using the best you can find. Choose a peanut butter with a rich, peanut-y flavor and silky smooth texture — and opt for one without any added sugar. You don’t need it!

To get the most decadent chocolate flavor — plus some extra health benefits — we recommend Earth Echo Foods Cacao Bliss. The subtleness of the cinnamon and turmeric in the Cacao Bliss adds an extra dimension, taking the flavor to another level. You can take 15% off your order today using the code PLATES.

For plant-based milks, almond, oat, and hazelnut are some of our favorites for nice cream, but the sky’s the limit. We’ve recently been feeling flax milk, which add some omega-3s, protein, and fiber for an even healthier treat.

3. Get creative with your toppings.

You could enjoy this nice cream recipe plain. But why not top it with a peanut butter drizzle, crushed peanuts, and cacao nibs? You won’t regret it.
