Did you know if you take frozen bananas and blend them, the result will be a delicious ice cream like mixture known in the blogging world as nice cream. The sky is the limit when it comes to flavor combinations. Favorites like Chocolate Peanut Butter, Mint chocolate Chip and Cookies n' cream are all possible in a low fat vegan healthy treat!
Today we made a delicious summer inspired bowl of nice cream featuring our elderberry syrup. We can't think of a tastier way of getting your daily dose of elderberry then adding it to a strawberry, cherry, banana nice cream smoothie bowl. Topped with some frozen strawberries, and coconut for texture. We were on cloud 9.
1.) Bananas should be over ripe and sliced in 1-2 inch pieces before freezing for easier blending.
2.) For a thick ice cream like consistency, use as little liquid as possible.
2 frozen bananas chopped into 1-2 inch pieces
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup Frozen Cherries
2 tablespoons Elderberry Syrup
3-4 tablespoons plant or cows milk
Add frozen fruit and elderberry syrup to blender. Blend on low speed 10 seconds at a time until mixture resembles coarse sand. Scrape down sides of blender as needed. Add milk 1 tablespoons at a time and blend on medium speed until your fruit blends together. It should be very thick.
Spoon nice cream into desired bowls and top with fresh fruit, coconut, chia seeds, chocolate. Whatever your heart desires! Enjoy!
