It’s been around for a while but is still one of my go-to desserts for days when I’m craving something sweet and simple.

It’s made right in your food processor and you only need 1 ingredient. That’s it – just one single ingredient!

Of course, if you haven’t guessed that one ingredient is frozen ripe bananas!

That’s right, this delicious ice cream-esque treat is made simply from processing frozen bananas!

This frozen treat is big on banana flavor, low on fat, and super easy to make!

What is banana whip “nice” cream?

“Nice” cream is a fun play on words for frozen banana whip!

It has the texture of ice cream but is in fact just frozen bananas processed together to create a silky smooth ice cream-like dessert.

Obviously, it’s called “nice” because it’s low in fat and compared to traditional ice cream could be considered much healthier.

Of course, I think there is room for all things frozen in the diet (including ice cream!) but it’s nice to sometimes have the option for something a little on the healthier side.

How do I store “nice” cream?

You’ll want to store any leftover “nice” cream in your freezer.

If you let your banana whip sit out for too long it will melt into a banana puree.

While still edible it’s not really the same play on ice cream as it is when it’s frozen.

How do I store frozen bananas?

Any time my bananas are too ripe for my liking I peel them, put them into a freezer-safe ziptop bag, and store them in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Frozen bananas obviously work really well for this banana whip recipe BUT they are also great for frozen smoothies like my Tropical Green Smoothie Bowl, Cranberry Smoothie Bowl, or my Apple Pie Smoothie Bowl.
