Mint Chocolate Chip “Nice” Cream

Mint Chocolate Chip “Nice” Cream

Vegan, dairy-free Mint Chocolate Chip “Nice” Cream (aka healthy, plant-based ice cream) made with bananas, coconut milk, stevia, and fresh mint leaves!


The “nice” cream revolution is upon us, y’all and I am all about it! This Mint Chocolate Chip “Nice” Cream tastes almost identical to regular ice cream. I could eat this every day! It is the perfect treat and insane that you can yield such good results with healthy alternative ingredients!

If you haven’t heard of “nice” cream, it’s essentially a healthier version of ice cream made from usually a frozen banana and coconut milk base, or any other type of nut milk and frozen fruit.

The base of this recipe is indeed light coconut milk and frozen bananas. Other than that, there’s literally 4 ingredients! Compare that to some of the ice cream brands you find at the store and I’d bet you’d be surprised!

The trick to a good scoop is freezing for 2 hours

The other ingredients in this nice cream are: fresh mint leaves, spirulina powder, vegan chocolate chips, and stevia. I got the fresh mint and stevia from Trader Joes and the spirulina powder and Lily’s chocolate chips from Whole Foods, but you can also get it from Amazon relatively cheap!

Although spirulina can be more of an expensive ingredient,  it’s a great investment for your health and can be used in tons of other recipes and ways! You can choose to forgo it for this recipe, but it won’t have the iconic mint green color. If you don’t want to buy Vegan Chocolate chips, you can also use cacao nibs or use them as a topping!

Nice Cream can be enjoyed instantly from the blender, but if you want a more “scoopable” consistency then you should freeze it…be patient, good things come for those who wait 😉

This nice cream is seriously soo good y’all I hope you enjoy!! Pro tip: Try pairing it with my Paleo Sweet Potato Walnut Brownie recipe.

    This looks great! I have always wanted to try making nice cream and this looks like the perfect recipe. Where can you buy spirulina powder? Can I get it in the shops or do I need to buy it online?

      It is so yummy! You can get it at any health food store (i.e. Whole Foods) but now it is more common in even places like Wal-Mart! You can also buy it online and I attached a link if that’s helpful!

  3. I love Nice Cream
