I love a bowl of ice cream, especially topped off with my favourite toppings including strawberries and coconut. This ‘nice’ cream makes a delicious dairy-free alternative to ice cream. Super easy to make, it easily satisfies a sweet tooth, without being cram packed with unnecessary sugars.


Banana & Pistachio 'Nice' Cream with Strawberry Drizzle (Vegan & GF)

Ingredients for 'Nice Cream'

  • 5 bananas, peeled, roughly chopped & frozen
  • 1/2 cup unsalted pistachio nuts
  • 1 tblsp of chia seeds
  • 10 tsp of almond milk
  • 1 tsp of maple syrup

Ingredients for strawberry drizzle

  • 2 cups of strawberries, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 tsp of maple syrup


  • Strawberries, finely sliced
  • Coconut chips
  • Pistachio nuts

How to make Banana & Pistachio 'Nice' Cream with Strawberry Drizzle (Vegan & GF)

1. Place the frozen bananas, almond milk, maple syrup, pistachio nuts and chia seeds into a food processor/blender, and whizz up until the consistency turns like ice-cream. This will taken around 3-4 minutes. If its too thick, just add more almond milk until its smooth enough!

2. To make the drizzle. Place the strawberries, water & maple syrup into a saucepan on the hob, and gently heat until the strawberries become soft.

3. Transfer the soft strawberries into a food blender and blend until smooth. Place back into the pan and turn up the heat until it reduces down.

4. Once its prepared, place into a bowl or container and place into the fridge to slightly thicken & keep cool.

5. Now heres the fun part....making your NICE CREAM! I piled up my nice cream and decorated it with some sliced strawberries, pistachios, coconut chips and to be a little fancy, I added some edible gold leaf (optional) for a nice touch!

I hope you give this delicious banana &
