Pecan Caramel Nice Cream (Vegan, Paleo)

Pecan Caramel Nice Cream. So, a long time ago, I created a pecan caramel ice cream recipe. The original one called for the use of an ice cream maker and also had a coconut milk base.  I wanted to make a nice cream version that didn’t require an ice cream maker at all.  The result was delicious!!

Chocolate Almond Butter Ice Cream

It’s perfect weather for ice cream here in Dallas.  So I am busy making new flavors like this Chocolate Almond Butter Ice Cream.  Or rather, “nice cream.”  I call it nice cream because it’s made with frozen bananas.  That makes it very healthy too!

Now, don’t get scared off by the phrase, healthy ice cream. I promise it’s really delicious!  My 6 year old actually begs for this almost every afternoon in the summer. The best part about this?  You don’t even need an ice cream maker to make this! Yay!

I didn’t blend mine super well because I liked the bananas kind of chunky, but you are more than welcome to blend until smooth.  You can also make this with sunflower butter instead of almond butter for a nut free option.

When I go to the store, I always buy two bunches of bananas so I can put one bunch in the freezer.  That way I always have bananas on hand to make this.
