Superfood Berry ‘Nicecream

Superfood Berry 'Nicecream aka Banana Ice-cream (vegan) | curlsnchard.com

Happy Monday! Did you all survive the chocolate filled Easter weekend (if you celebrate)? How about a fresh, superfood berry ‘nicecream? This banana ice cream is full of superfoods like baobab, açai, grape seed and rosehip and has no added sugars or any other nasties.

I plain out love banana ice-cream – it’s incredibly versatile and made so quickly. It’s even delicious during winter time, which my Cinnamon Maple Banana Ice-Cream is definitely a proof for. That recipe was already a crowd pleaser (with bowl-licking included). You don’t want to miss even the last drop of this! This superfood berry ‘nicecream is a delicious spring and summer version of it that packs a punch on the vitamin end as well. Baobab on its own is already a little powerhouse, as it’s rich in vitamin C, and high in antioxidants and fibre (at least that’s what the little leaflet says that came with my powder!). Baobab comes from a tree, which is also called the tree of life in Africa, sounds good, right? I guess you all have heard about the high level of antioxidants in açai already? So let me also tell you that grape seed powder and rosehip are actually really good for you too, they are rich in vitamin C as well (well, rosehip is) and also generally in antioxidants and also omega fatty acids. I’m no doctor or nutrionist, but that’s what I have read about those ingredients, so I hope it’s true! 😉 And honestly, I feel much more energetic since I’ve added those ingredients to my diet on a regular level.

This superfood powered banana ice-cream will definitely help you over the typical lethargic feeling lots of us have in spring. The color alone makes me happy in the morning, so I hope you will feel the same. You can actually make this as smoothie bowl as well, if you prefer it not as cold or simply have only fresh bananas at home. Even though I eat it for breakfast, this would be a perfect dessert as well, or honestly any time of the day that you crave something refreshing and light!

Superfood Berry 'Nicecream
 
Author:
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 1 large frozen banana
  • ½ cup frozen berries (I used 6 frozen strawberries) + more for decoration
  • 2 tbsp baobab powder
  • 1 tbsp açai powder
  • 1 tsp grape seed powder
  • 1 tbsp rosehip powder
  • 5 almonds
  • 2 tbsp oats (optional)
  • rice milk (or other milk of choice)
  • cocoa nibs for sprinkling
Instructions
  1. Put all the dry ingredients in the blender first and pulverize it. I used some almonds and oats in this 'nicecream too, to make it more substantial.
  2. Add the frozen fruit and a tiny bit of milk - depending on what kind of blender you have, you might need to add the frozen fruit in batches or let it thaw a bit!
  3. Pulse a few times and only add small amounts of liquid to it while you create the ice cream - it should be creamy and smooth but not too liquid. Also, make sure you don't blend too much, or it will all melt and you will have a smoothie (which is still delicious!).
  4. Scoop it into a bowl, sprinkle with cocoa nibs and some more berries and enjoy!
Notes
If you make this as dessert, you can as well leave the oats and even almonds out - for breakfast I would recommend using them so it will hold you over longer.
You can also make this as a smoothie - simply add more milk or use fresh instead of frozen fruit!

    1. Thank you E., you should try it – it’s delicious even without the superfoods, just put everything into your blender and enjoy!

    1. Yes, it does 😉 It’s a really nice addition in this bowl – if you can get your hands on a sample of it, give it a try! My maple cinnamon banana ice cream has overall been a hit around my family, friends and my boyfriend too. It was really a crowd pleaser, whenever I made it 😀 Now I’m unfortunately out of maple water, but I’m probably making it again with coconut water and a splash of maple syrup!

    1. Hey, thank you for stopping by and taking time to leave a comment 🙂 It is really delicious – even if you don’t have all the superfoods at home, it’s still a delicious breakfast or dessert. Let me know when you tried it, I always love hearing when readers make my recipes. Have a wonderful evening! xoxo

  1. So many new ingredients!! I’ve been wanting to try baobab and acai for a while, but have never had rosehip or grape seed powder. What better way to try new things than in nicecream! 🙂

    1. Hey Natalie! Baobab and Açai are really wonderful products, and so are rosehip and grape seed powder. You could also try grape seed oil, which is supposed to be very very good for you as well. I agree with you, nicecream and also smoothies are the perfect opportunities to try out new ingredients!

  2. This looks so yummy! I think I have some research and shopping to do with these powders. I really have been trying to cook and eat cleaner. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    1. Thank you so much Aimee! The ice cream is also delicious without the superfood powders, in case you can’t find them 🙂 And if you want to invest in only one of them, I would suggest baobab!

    1. It’s really so easy to do Rebecca – just freeze some bananas the next time you have some at home and once you try it, you will be hooked 😉 Unless you don’t like bananas 😀

  3. This looks delicious!! We are addicted to banana ice cream around here and I am always looking for new ways to change it up! This sounds devine and I will definitely be giving it a go. Love your site btw, it is beautiful and so inspiring!

    1. Thank you so much for your sweet words, Donna! Banana ice cream is just so so good, no wonder your family loves it 🙂

    1. Thank you Nicole – you can switch it up with whatever kind of fruit you enjoy! Or just make it with only bananas, this is delicious too 🙂
