Craving something creamy and sweet that won’t blow up your intestines?

Great, we have you covered! Check out this simple “nice cream” made from completely plant based ingredients. This recipe is especially helpful for those who love dessert but have a sensitive stomach when it comes to dairy products.

By the way, this can be used as a healthy dessert, a post-workout treat, or even a snack from time to time if you are looking for a little variety.

Grab your blender and let’s get rolling!

Cinnamon Banana “Nice Cream”

A delicious dairy free ice cream, packed with protein!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Servings 2


  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1/2 cup full fat canned coconut milk
  • 1 TBSP almond, peanut or seed butter We suggest an overflowing TBSP!!
  • 2 scoops of plant-based protein powder We used Naked Nutrition’s Pure Pea
  • 1-2 tsp cinnamon (Totally up to your flavor preference!)


  1. Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor.

  2. Scoop into a bowl and enjoy immediately or pour in to a container and freeze if you prefer a hard textured ice cream.

  3. Option to sprinkle with your favorite toppings! Hemp seeds, shredded coconut, raw cacao or Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips!

Pro Tip: If you prefer soft-serve, we suggest you dig that spoon in ASAP. If you are more of a hard scoop kind of guy or gal, freeze the dairy free ice cream in a rectangular container for 30-60 minutes and scoop with a traditional ice cream scoop. And, for those who accidentally forget to remove the nice cream from the freezer in time, you may need to let it defrost on the counter for a few minutes before scooping!!
