3. tips

  • The riper and more aromatic the fruit, the tastier the ice cream. With bananas you can recognize the ripeness very well by the color (beautiful, rich yellow and many brown dots).
  • If the bananas are not yet ripe enough and therefore have not yet developed as much sweetness, you can add a bit of Honey* or Maple syrup* help up.
  • You can vary the Nicecream with other fruits. To do this, it is best to freeze all fruits or alternatively use at least refrigerated.

  • You should always have a small supply of frozen bananas or fruits in the freezer, then nothing stands in the way of immediate enjoyment.
  • When blending, do not work at too high a speed, otherwise too much heat will be generated and the ice cream will turn into lukewarm fruit slush in places.
  • If it does not want to work with the mixing times so, you can also add a little more liquid. However, you have to make sure that it is not too much and it becomes more of a banana shake than an ice cream.
  • Nicecream tastes best when freshly prepared. Therefore, it should not be re-frozen, but consumed to the last remnant.

4. one word at the end

Nicecream is often advertised as a healthy alternative. However, one should always be aware that fruits and especially ripe bananas contain much Fructose contained.

Composition of a banana with 100 g:
22,8 g of carbohydrates
2.6 g dietary fibre
1,1 g protein
0,3 g fat

With this you take with you a portion of ice cream approx. 90 kcal to itself. This should not stop you from enjoying your Nicecream, because in fruits are of course also many healthy constituents. One should, as always in life, simply find the right measure.

For me personally Nicecream not a full-fledged ice cream substitute. As I said, that's my opinion and I know enough people who are fans. It's certainly a quick and easy way to make an ice cream-like vegan dessert, and it's also great for kids. But at the end of the day, Nicecream is a puree of frozen fruit. Quite tasty, but from the taste complexity and consistency can not be compared with a real ice cream.
