3 Green ‘Nice’ Cream Recipes: Yes, Have Ice Cream for Breakfast!

3 Green Nice Cream Recipes that Inspire a Healthier and Wholesome Breakfast

Ice cream, ice cream, we all scream for… nice cream? So-called “nice” cream is just that – nice to your body, nice to your taste buds, and nice to your sweet tooth soul. The following 3 recipes will inspire your palate all year long.

The beauty of nice cream is that as long as you have some frozen bananas on hand and a high-speed blender or food processor, you are but mere seconds away from a delicious dish. The banana is unique in that it offers a creamy, decadent consistency and naturally sweet flavor without the dairy, eggs, or sugar. Meanwhile, it is able to mask the otherwise not-so-yummy add-ins that you know do your body well, such as wheatgrass, spirulina, chlorella, aloe, green leaf vegetables, and other powders, elixirs, and vegetables. I, for one, can’t imagine eating a salad for breakfast, but by blending greens into a banana-based cream, I don’t even realize I’m getting the high-alkaline roughage into my system. It’s a win-win situation that will work just as well on your kids as it will on you.

The following nice cream recipes give you a high dose of nutrition through fruits, vegetables, unique superfoods and come together to create an absolutely breakfast meal! Enjoy!
