I was confused when I first heard this term, and when I read about it it I thought “I’ve been doing this for years”! It’s just that somebody has actually given nicecream a proper name which I think is very smart!
So nicecream is actually healthy, but delicious ice cream made from frozen bananas.
Even if you’re not a fan of bananas, believe me, frozen bananas taste completely different, very creamy and mild – quite like normal icecream.
My kids adore this stuff.

It does kind of get my wondering – why is nicecream only made from bananas?
You can actually use any frozen fruit to make healthy ice cream – it doesn’t have to be bananas.
I make this stuff for my kids all the time but I rarely use bananas. Why?
Because I can’t buy frozen bananas, but I can buy every other fruit under the sun frozen – no idea why they don’t sell frozen bananas!
Frozen mango, or berries is especially yummy to use.

How to make nicecream
If you want to make nicecream from bananas, simple peel ripe (brown spotty) bananas and break them into chunks and put them on a baking tray in your freezer.
Freeze until they are frozen and then you can put them in a bag to store in your freezer.
When you are ready to make the nicecream, you need to use a good quality food processor or a high speed blender (such as a vitamix with a tamper) and put your bananas (or other frozen fruit) in the jug.
If you don’t have good quality equipment, just leave your bananas (or other fruit) out of the freezer for a while to defrost slightly as it will make them easier to blend. Just don’t leave them too long or they’ll turn to mush.
Blend the fruit until frozen. If your fruit is really hard you might need to add a small amount of liquid such as coconut milk to the jug to help things along.
If you’re looking for some yummy nicecream recipes – you’re in the right place. Enjoy!

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
