Pineapple Spinach Nice Cream

The sun is shining, the sky is blue and what better way to cool down and reenergise but with healthy ice cream! Does healthy ice cream exist I hear you say? Yes! It’s called nice cream!

Nice cream is simply blended up frozen fruit, most frequently being frozen ripe bananas. When whizzed up in a high-speed blender you get a creamy soft Mr Whippy like-ice cream that is delicious and is free from dairy, added sugar, colours or preservatives. You can also create any flavour you fancy and it only takes under 5 minutes to prepare. Clean-eating at its best!

The grown-ups and kiddies in my household go nuts for nice cream. So much so, I often find myself buying extra bananas from the market with the intention of having extra to leave ripen to make nice-cream.

To boost up the protein content, I have added in some protein powder and wheatgrass, but this is optional.

You can of course serve your nice cream in a cone, but I love serving mine in a bowl so I can add loads of toppings. The only thing you need to remember is to freeze your bananas/ fruit beforehand (otherwise this recipe does not work!). Happy creating!

 

Serves: 1

Preparation time: under 5 mins (using pre-frozen fruit)

Ingredients:

  • 2 bananas, sliced into coins and frozen
  • 100g frozen pineapple chunks
  • Large handful of spinach
  • 2 tbsp. protein powder (soya bean and pea varieties keep this vegan)
  • 1 tbsp. plant milk
  • ¼-3/4 tsp. wheatgrass superfood powder (novices to wheatgrass may wish to opt for a lower amount as wheatgrass has quite a discerning flavour).

Topping ideas:

Fresh fruit: sliced grapes, raspberries, blueberries and pomegranate seeds.

Other suggestions: Toasted coconut chips, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, crushed pistachios.

Method

  • Simply place all ingredients into high-speed blender or food processor and mix. You will need a spatula to scrape down the contents and repeat the process a few times. Initially the mixture looks unpromising, but persist. The mixture will combine to form a beautiful creamy green nice cream!
  • Decorate as desired and enjoy! If desired, you can pop this nice cream in the freezer for later. I have tried to show in my photos the texture. As it was a very hot day, it was a bit of a challenge trying to take a photo before this melted!!!
