If you love traditional ice cream but are looking for a delicious and satisfying alternative, Connecticut-based Christie Caters and Farm-To-Truck owner Laura Christie gave us this amazing recipe for “Nice Cream.”  So put your assumptions aside and give it a try – you’ll be so glad you did! 



2-3 frozen bananas
1 large tablespoon peanut butter (or any nut/seed butter, sweetened or unsweetened)
1 tablespoon raw cocoa powder
almond milk as needed (or any other milk substitute)
pinch of sea salt


  • In a food processor or blender, blend the bananas with enough almond milk to make  creamy.
  • Add the cocoa powder and other ingredients and blend until smooth.
  • Depending on your preference, you can eat it immediately or put it in the freezer for 20 -30 minutes  for a firmer consistency.

We used half a tablespoon of regular cocoa powder (we didn’t have raw), a drop of agave and froze ours. Yum!
