Leanne's Nice Cream Recipes

Updated: Apr 22

Nice cream is a big staple in my raw vegan diet! I love bananas, so does my body and I also absolutely love nice cream! I eat nice cream at least once a day, most days twice! Nice cream can be a really great staple in a raw vegan diet for a number of reasons. Such as bananas are a relatively high calorie fruit, they contain water & fiber which are great for digestive health. They also contain potassium which is great for heart health as well as many other vitamins & minerals.


Banana’s can provide quite a substantial portion of a raw vegan person’s calorie intake, as they are approx. 105 calories per serve (in contract an apple for example only contains approx. 52 calories per serve). I usually eat 15 bananas a day or more, and often eat the majority of them in the form of nice creams and therefor they fill most of my daily calorie intake.


In case any one reading this blog does not know what nice cream is, I will explain it:

The base of nice cream is always frozen bananas. You peel and chop however many bananas you would like for your portion size (I use approx. 4-6 banana's). Then you place them into a container and freeze for at least 6 hours. They can also be frozen for much longer though. I often have a few containers of peeled and chopped bananas in the freezer so that I am never without.

When your bananas are frozen, put them into a high powered blender, add whatever other raw vegan foods you would like and blend in a high speed blender like a Vitamix until your nice cream is smooth and creamy.

I often add frozen fruits such as berries or mangos to the mix when making make my nice creams. You can add any fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, or any other raw vegan food you feel will make a great satisfying flavour.

  3. raw. Strawberry & banana nice cream

I love experimenting with lots of different flavours using raw and dried fruits, raw carob, spices and even raw vegetables like pumpkin as I mentioned. Nice creams are great as part of a low fat raw vegan diet and also as part of a raw vegan diet that includes nuts, seeds and avocados. I encourage you to experiment and find out what flavours and flavour combinations you enjoy!

One of the many wonderful things about the raw vegan diet is the abundance of variety and diversity! I personally feel my best if I eat exclusively fruits through the day until dinner, but I include nuts, seeds, and avocados in the evenings. I especially love using nuts in my after dinner nice creams, and though raw carob is not a part of my raw vegan diet often, I really enjoy using it on occasion.


You can make extra special nice cream flavours to treat yourself, and/or to serve to family members and friends. On a daily basis nice creams can make a wonderful addition to a raw vegan diet, and they can help you make sure you always feel satisfied and reach your calorie intake. If you are someone who does not want to use banana's you can make a fruit sorbet with just frozen fruit/s. You can use frozen grapes, kiwi, strawberry or Skye's favourite is Frozen Mango sorbet which is 5 frozen mangoes blended in a high speed blender (like a Vitamix).




The there are endless nice cream combinations when it comes to fruit choices to include so let your imagination run wild when you create your nice cream or fruit sorbet. I hope you enjoyed this blog post and that you feel inspired to get creating in your kitchens.
