To get started, first, take chopped frozen bananas and add them to a food processor. I like to keep my fridge stocked with frozen bananas – they are great to have for a tasty smoothie or creamy nice cream!

Second, add two cups of frozen blueberries on top of the bananas. Blueberries are tasty and rich in antioxidants – delicious and good for you!

Adding cinnamon to vegan blueberry nice cream

Once you add blueberries, add a pinch of cinnamon to the mixture. Cinnamon is one of my all-time favorite spices to kick up the taste.

Next, add vanilla to amp up the flavor. Vanilla adds a nice touch to many recipes by enhancing the other flavors.

During the blending process, scrape down the sides as you go. This process may take a couple of minutes so be patient. (Trust me, it’s worth the wait!)

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does nice cream last in the freezer?

Store blueberry nice cream in an airtight container in the freezer for up to one week.

What if I’m having trouble blending the mixture?

Let the frozen bananas thaw and soften for a few minutes to become easier to blend. You can also add 1 tbsp of dairy-free milk to encourage blending, however, be sure to adjust based on the consistency (you don’t want runny nice cream!)

What additional nice cream toppings do you recommend?

You can add shredded coconut, chocolate drizzle, other types of fresh fruit – get creative and work in your preferences!
