Craving ice cream but not the guilt that comes with? This recipe is definitely for you. ‘Nice’ cream is a great low calorie, vegan option that takes little time to make. The best part is you can adapt this recipe to your taste so that you don’t even taste the banana.
- 1 cup Frozen Banana (I used sliced ripe bananas)
- 1-2 tbsp plant-based milk (I used almond)
- 1 tbsp cacao powder
- 1tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp cacao nibs
- liquid stevia or agave syrup
- Using a powerful Blender (I used a Nutribullet) blend the frozen banana until smooth. Add 1-2tbsp of almond milk to ease the process and pulse it at first.
- Once smooth, add any spices, flavourings and cacao nibs and blend further. The cacao nibs reinforce that chocolate flavour.
- Spoon the Nice cream into a bowl and top with granola and fruits or any nuts and seeds of your choice.
Other good flavour combos are Acai and frozen blueberries, coffee and cacao nibs, strawberries and coconut flakes. I hope you try out this recipe and let me know how it goes. This is great for dessert or even for breakfast! Thank you for reading and please like and follow for more delicious recipes, xoxo.
Gluten free, dairy free, sugar free and guilt free. This yummy recipe is easy to make and takes only a short amount of time. I recently made this one as a little treat even though I am improving my fitness goals, so you don’t have to worry that it will compromise your weight loss, it won’t (as long as you don’t eat the whole batch in a week).
What I find works best for me is to avoid batch baking, because otherwise I find myself reaching for one of these every day and that’s ok as long as you’re not going into a caloric surplus. I usually bake on the spot because these recipes are pretty quick to make.
- 50g almond flour
- 50g gluten free flour (I used neofoods all purpose blend )
- 20 g cacao powder
- 2 eggs
- 40g erythritol/stevia blend (I used Sukrin)
- 100 ml almond milk
- 1/4 tsp vanilla powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 pinch of salt
- Cacao nibs (optional)
- Mix all the dry ingredients together
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry and combine well. Gradually add the milk until a desired consistency, the thicker the batter, the more dense your muffins will be.
- Spray a muffin pan with some coconut oil and pour in the batter up to 3/4 of the mould.
- Bake in the oven at 170ºC for 10-15 mins (these cook pretty fast so keep an eye on them)
- Let them cool down before storing them in the fridge, they’ll last for 1-2 weeks.

These low carb crackers are a delicious savoury snack that you can make in 15 minutes. All you need are three ingredients, that you may already have in your kitchen if you are low carb. This is such a simple recipe that you can make in batches to keep over the week, by simple doubling the recipe.
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1 egg
- 1/4 tsp salt
- spices (optional)
- Combine the almond flour, salt and spices of your choice together.
- Mix in the beaten egg to form a dough.
- Roll the dough between two sheets of baking paper.
- Cut the rolled out dough into any desired shape.
- Bake in the oven on a baking sheet for 10 mins at 170º C or until they harden.
- Leave them to cool completely before taking them out.
- If you’re using almond meal (which is coarser) you only need half an egg.
- Make sure your dough is evenly rolled out or it will cook inconsistently.
- For spices I like to use garlic and thyme.
- These are great with any dip or toppings.
Servings: 12 crackers (0.3 cm thick)
