How to Kill Cravings – Ice Cream Edition

Trying to stick to your meal plan but reeeeeeeally want to eat ice cream?

I’ll be honest – this doesn’t happen to me very often. I prefer candy or cake over ice cream.

However, my friend Katie has been sharing pictures of her amazing “nice cream.”

So, I had to share for all my friends who really love ice cream!

A loooong time ago when cooking was sort of a hobby of mine, I used to make “chunky monkey” which was someone else’s name for “nice cream.”   I used to make it for an after dinner treat and totally forgot about it until I heard Katie talking about it recently.

What’s Nice Cream?

It’s a frozen treat that mimics ice cream without all the sugar and heavy cream.  That means you can enjoy “ice cream” anytime you want which sounds amazing if you’re on a clean eating plan or watching your empty calories! {or if ice cream makes your tummy hurt}

It’s simple to make!

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • splash of vanilla extract
  • pinch of cinnamon

Throw ALL THAT in a food processor. Process for 1-2 minutes. Eat.

Easy peasy!

You can grab more ideas from my frrraaaand Katie’s blog.  Choose a flavor combination that works for you and blend it up!

You can have Nice Cream anytime!

Some people enjoy this concoction for a snack and some people even eat it for breakfast!


Ice cream for breakfast COULD fit into your meal plan!!
