Recipe for Raspberry Lamington NiceCream Bowl

Smoothie bowls and “Nicecream” are all the rage right now. Whenever I am looking through Instagram I see countless beautiful breakfast bowls made with this Smoothie-icecream hybrid called Nicecream. For those of you who don’t know what Nicecream is, it is made by freezing bananas and throwing them in a food processor. Most people will also add other ingredients such as mint, strawberries or cocoa powder to flavour their Nicecream

This weekend I was feeling a little bored with my usual breakfast options and decided to give Nicecream a try. For the flavours in this recipe, I chose a Raspberry based Nicecream and topped it off with sweetened coconut flakes, dark chocolate, almonds, chia seeds and banana chips.  I decided to name this recipe after the Lamington which is an Australian treat that features coconut and either raspberry or chocolate as its main flavours. 

What you will need

  • 5 Bananas (very ripe) 
  • 1/2 cup frozen or fresh raspberries
  • Sweetened coconut flakes
  • Chia seeds
  • Raw Almonds
  • Dark Chocolate (I used 85%)
  • Banana chips
  • Chocolate covered quinoa puffs

Instructions

Making Nicecream is actually much more simple than I had originally thought. The most time-consuming part is actually getting the bananas to freeze so try to do this a day in advance. The best way to freeze them is just to slice them up into dollars and lay them out flat in a freezer bag for a few hours or overnight. 

Once your bananas are frozen, put them in a food processor or blend them with an immersion hand blender. Once they are pretty smooth add in your raspberries and blend again. 

Depending on the texture you want you can either assemble your Nicecream bowl right away or put your Nicecream back in the freezer for an hour or so to get a stiffer texture. I decided to put my mixture back in the freezer as it was a little bit too runny for my taste.

Once your Nicecream is good and cold you are ready to assemble your bowl. This is the part where you can get creative and go all Picasso on your breakfast. As long as the ingredients are there you can play around with the design as much as you want. 

After trying this bowl I found it to be a little sweet to eat for breakfast. I think next time I will try it with half Nicecream and half plain yogurt. However, I think this is a perfect dessert and I will definitely be making this on our sundae nights!
