Nicecream base: peeled frozen bananas

I prefer to use frozen bananas as base for my Nicecream recipes. They provide a nice creamy consistency, but without any cream at all. It's important that you peel the bananas before freezing them. Cut them into slices - no wider than 1.5 cm - Put them in the freezer.
Tip 1: It's best to freeze several bananas at once, because once you've made Nicecream, you or your family will want more.
Tip 2:If you want to use other fruits as a frozen base - e.g. mangos, strawberries or wild berries, make sure that the frozen fruits are not larger than raspberries. This makes mixing much easier.

Prepare Nicecream in a high-speed blender

All you need is a powerful blender, which ideally can also mix at low speeds. Not every high-performance blender can do this! Depending on the container shape of your blender, different minimum amounts are necessary for the Nicecream preparation. While you can use the Vitamix TNC 5200 or the Vitamix E310 to make small amounts of ice cream starting at 400 ml, the Vitamix Pro 750, for example, requires 800 ml.

Nicecream recipe: Strawberry delight

My very first Nicecream was an instant success - two ingredients are enough already: Strawberries and bananas. My family loves this combination, which can be quickly transformed into a gourmet version with a few chocolate shavings and some fresh mint. If the strawberries are very sour, just add some maple syrup.

Green smoothies have been my replacement for morning cerals since 2009. They are inspiring, delicious and speak for themselves. They fit into our lives with five kids and lots of joy in creative healthy cooking. I really love to prepare or create new smoothies. Inspired by the Green Smoothie, I combine two of my passions with my job: taking pictures and working with food.

I just wanted to prepare nicecream (banana +raspberries) for the first time with my new Vitamix TNC (new). The device immediately went into overheated and smells like burnt plastic. Should I have let the bananas thaw? Or what did I do wrong?
Greetings

Dear Pia,

actually, it works without thawing. It is important that the banana pieces are not too big and that the unfrozen fruits go into the container first.
Just try it again – if necessary with short thawing, if the banana pieces are larger than 1-1.5 cm thick slices.
Furthermore, it is mandatory to use the tamper during the whole preparation!!!

Best regards,
Carla

Too bad all the recipes are with bananas. Unfortunately, I cannot try any recipe as I am allergic to bananas :-(

Hello Petra,

You can also modify the strawberry and raspberry nicecream. Simply omit the bananas. Instead, you use frozen berries and add cream. The nicecream then is no longer vegan, but banana-free...

Love, Carla
