“Nice cream” is near the top of my list for favorite food discoveries.
Whoever discovered that frozen bananas can transform into an utterly decadent-tasting yet healthy treat is a genius!
This Coffee Crunch Nice Cream with Cafe Latte Shakeology takes your standard banana nice cream to the next level.
All you need is four ingredients — and no more than 10 minutes of your time.
As with other nice creams, this Coffee Crunch Nice Cream is similar to soft serve in texture.
Café Latte Shakeology
Flavored with the rich, creamy taste of coffee, your morning pick-me-up is now a superfood dessert.
Arguably, you can make nice cream out of most frozen fruit, but bananas are by far my favorite base.
They add just the right amount of creaminess, and texturally, it’s very close to real ice cream. I prefer to use just ripe bananas for this recipe (think: golden yellow).
They have a milder flavor that allows the other flavors to shine through. If you’re going for a stronger banana flavor, you may prefer riper, more speckled bananas.
- Save time and keep extra sliced bananas in the freezer.
- For best results, make 4 servings at once.
