Chocolate, Almond and Baobab Nicecream

This heat wave that’s hit the UK this week means I’m eating lots AND LOTS of Nicecream. If you’re not familiar with nicecream, I posted another recipe here not too long ago showing how to make another version of this recipe using banana, pineapple and wheatgrass.

Banana ice cream is by far the best, tastiest and healthiest way to cool down on a hot summer’s day, in my opinion. It’s so quick to make, given that you have bananas in your freezer which I make sure I always do during summer in anticipation for such scorching days, and it’s so creamy and delicious without any guilt whatsoever! I know some people (including me once upon a time) avoid bananas because they’re ‘high carb’ but trust me, they won’t make you gain weight! It’s the other junk and processed food that will make you gain weight, not bananas!

I’m adding in some baobab powder to bump up my vitamin C intake. I’ve had a cold and a cough the last two weeks that just won’t budge! Before this, I hadn’t caught a cold in over a year so I think my immune system at the moment is weak for some reason, so I’m trying to strengthen it by eating as much fruit and veg as I can.

I’m also adding in some almond butter to add richness and creaminess to the nicecream, although you can use any kind of nut butter you prefer, or if you can’t eat nuts, you can always add in some yogurt instead.

    1. Haha! 😛 It’s not necessary to add the baobab powder and it doesn’t add to the taste, I just like to add it for some extra goodness 😉 x

    1. Haha thank you Sina 😀 and sorry for making you hungry 😛 I’m always hungry because I’m always looking at, thinking of or making food 😛 x

  1. This sounds so good! My food processor broke last month, and I haven’t had any nice cream since. It’s been a bummer of a situation :/

    1. Thank you Hannah 😀 Oh man! You need to get a food processor QUICK so you can start enjoying nicecream again 😀 x

    1. Thank you lovely Kelly 🙂 the almond butter adds extra creaminess and everything tastes better with cocoa 😛 x

  2. Mmmmmmmm!!!! Nicecream is the best! It still amazes me how frozen bananas make such a delicious dessert! I’ve never tried making it with a nut butter or baobab before, but they sound like the perfect additions. I will definitely have to try it out! 🙂

    1. Right? I still can’t believe how something as simple as a banana can result in such a creamy, decadent ice cream! There’s some sort of wizardry going on 😛 The nut butter adds extra creaminess and the baobab is just for the vitamin C 🙂 x

    1. Thank you Anupama 😀 We’ve had a heat wave in the UK the last few days so I’ve been making so much of this banana ice cream!!

    1. It’s so easy, creamy and of course very healthy 😉 Love your avocado ice cream recipe! Really need to try it 😀 x
