Refreshing and Healthy: The 3 Best Nice Cream Recipes

Nice cream is the ideal ice cream for the figure-conscious. It is vegan, gluten-free and consists of just two ingredients – frozen bananas and some plant milk. Here are the three best variations on nice cream for the perfect summer.

Our tip:

Don’t throw away brown bananas – you can use them as the basis for your vegan nice cream. Just peel, slice and freeze them in individual portions.
