"Nice" Cream- The Ice Cream That's Good For You! (And Another Significant Thing)

If you are reading this, The Blergh's URL has officially changed! Unless you're me, in which case the scenario's a little bit different since I'm writing this post right now while listening to the Red Hot Chili Peppers Carpool Karaoke. Anywho, from this moment on, The Blergh's URL is www.theblergh.blogspot.com. Whoa, when I was typing that, I accidentally started typing the whythinks URL.

I would like to dedicate this post to whythinks, the URL that carried The Blergh so far. We will always love you, whythinks.

Anywho, I got my wisdom teeth out this past week, as you might have known from http://theblergh.blogspot.com/2016/07/everybody-should-be-reading-this-blog.html. Cue piles of ice cream. So much ice cream. However! Not all of it was heavy cream and sugar and whatever else goes into ice cream, I don't know, unicorn magic maybe- because I tried nice cream.

If you haven't heard of nice cream, or whatever other names the kids are calling it now, it's literally just bananas. You slice them, freeze them for at least a couple of hours, and whir them up. Sounds disgusting, right?

It's great. It's amazing. Plus it's gluten free(duh), vegan, and low calorie! And it doesn't even taste like it is.
I went by this post the first time I made it, if you want to check it out.

drizzle of honey

I wanted to show you the amazing transformation the bananas undergo, so I documented it with a video. Not a super artistic video, but one that gets the job done.

This is just two bananas, sliced and frozen(for at least a couple of hours, preferably overnight), and a tablespoon of cocoa powder, blended in a food processor until smooth. With just one tablespoon of cocoa powder, it has a light chocolate flavor to it. If you want some serious chocolatey business, there's nothing wrong with adding another tablespoon.

The result is a rich, creamy ice cream! If I didn't know, I would never suspect that it was composed of bananas. I encourage you to try it. It's seriously good stuff. Plus, since it's made of fruit... you can have ice cream for breakfast!

My parents and I went to the beach the night I made the nice cream featured in the video, and since it was already in a jar, I brought it along. But I forgot to bring a spoon! So I ate it with my fingers. It was totally great.

Lots of love,

Heather <3
