CHUNKY MONKEY NICE CREAM

- Banana Nut Ice Cream -
  • SERVING SIZE: 1 SMALL BOWL
  • PREP TIME: 5 MINS
  • TOTAL TIME: 5 MINS
  • RECIPE TYPE: SNACK
  • 2 small bananas, peeled, chopped, and frozen overnight
  • ¼ cup of Cuisine Camino organic, fair trade semi-sweet chocolate chips (dairy and gluten free)
  • 2 tbsp chopped walnut
  1. Place frozen banana chunks and chocolate chips into a blender or food processor.
  2. Blend until the mixture is a smooth, heavy consistency. Blend too long and your nice cream will be runny. Blend too short and it’ll be extra chunky!
  3. Scoop mixture into a bowl and top with walnuts. Feel free to add more than 2 tbsp if you’re feelin’ nutty!

Are April showers getting you down? We’ve got the perfect pick me up! We scream, you scream, we all scream for – you guessed it.

This Chunky Monkey Nice Cream is our take on everybody’s favourite summer treat (minus the cream, of course). The best part? It only takes 5 minutes, 2 fixin’s, and 1 major ingredient: banana.

That’s right. This nice cream just got a whole lot nicer. Two frozen bananas can make a perfectly portioned bowl, free of all that excess sugar and gluten found in most dairy-free, soy alternatives. Plus, bananas are chalk full of protein-building potassium and pectin for easy digestion.

Simply toss in your favourite toppings and voila! Your cheat day cravings will be washed away with the April rain.
