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.

- 2 frozen bananas, peeled
- In a food processor add frozen bananas and start processing.
- Stopping after a minute or so to scrape down the sides if you see it starting to stick.
- At first, you will notice the banana start to resemble small dots (think dip and dots ice cream) Just keep processing and stopping to scrape until the banana comes together and resembles creamy soft serve ice cream. It should be smooth with no large chunks of banana remain. This whole process should take between 3 and 5 minutes.
- Eat plain or drizzled with chocolate sauce.
