Chocolate Almond Butter Banana Nice Cream

Every so often when perusing Whole Foods I am lured into buying a pint of Arctic Zero ice-cream. If you haven’t tasted Arctic Zero for yourself, I recommend you do as it is a great alternative to ice-cream that is low in calories, low in sugar, protein dense and really hits the spot anytime you are looking for something sweet. The one down-sides to this ice-cream alternative is that it is a bit pricey to rationalize having it in my freezer on the reg. To satisfy my cravings for something sweet and ice-creamy I have begun experimenting with making at-home banana nice cream (a vegan banana-based “icecream”) and I think I have finally found my perfect recipe!

This incredibly simple version of banana nice cream is elevated with a healthy dose of chocolate Vega Protein and Greens powder (plant-based) and almond butter. There are no additional sweeteners and you even get an extra serving of greens thanks to the Vega Protein and Greens. While this nice cream is particularly a great way to start or end your end, it is great any time of day and can easily be modified to meet your flavor preferences.
