Good morning all who love sweets as much as I do. Guess what’s on for breakfast today? Yes, finally something sweet. Do you remember the orange granola from last week? This wonderful Nicecream breakfast bowl will show you one, no, actually, two variants how to combine it in a great and tasty way…
What is Nicecream? Anyone who is often on Instagram’s most famous food channels probably already knows or is even an expert in preparing Nicecream Bowls. But for everyone else, I would like to explain what nicecream actually is.
Nicecream is a healthy form of making ice cream. Actually, the main ingredient are frozen fruits. The basis is usually (as it is in this recipe as well) a high proportion of frozen banana. Together with plant milk, it makes a consistency similar to classic ice cream containing milk – just WITHOUT dairy! Isn’t that great? Of course, the disadvantage is the relatively high carbohydrate content, and for people who have to do without fructosis, the relatively high fructosis content. That’s why I personally try not to eat nicecream that often, especially not every morning for breakfast (because of the many carbohydrates).
The principle of Nicecream production is quite simple: take 2-3 bananas, cut them into slices and freeze them in a freezer bag. Make sure to put the slices are as flatly as possible next to each other into the bag, so that they do not stick together in a lump. This will make it easier for you to portion them, and you can better decide how much you want to use at a time. Then you simply add 1-2 types of fruit, cocoa powder, vanilla, lemon or such a great colored powder, like Spirulina, which is rich in vitamins and proteins. It is very important to put the bananas into the blender when they are still frozen. This way the ice cream keeps its nice firm consistency. More importantly, do not use too much of the alga!! Otherwise, the ice cream will taste like fish. The first time I tested this recipe, I was a bit too brisk with the beautiful forest green powder. The result was that I had to rescue its taste by adding about two tons of frozen banana. That’s why the bowl has such a beautiful turquoise color, and is not pine needle green, as the powder actually looks like when it comes out of the package.
Of course, now you may ask yourself: Does the spirulina bowl then make a good protein meal after gym? Unfortunately, it doesn’t. Although it contains spirulina, which is known to have a protein content of over 60 percent, the proteins are not really in the foreground here. Since only a little Spirulina can be used (just 5 grams), you would theoretically have to add another, protein powder which is neutral in taste. But now, I’ve talked enough, let’s go for the recipe 🙂Print
2–3 bananas, frozen
1 tsp Spirulina
4-5 kiwi berries
1/4 cup or 1 shot of vegetable milk (I took almond milk)
1 hand full of granola
1 pinch of sesame seeds, white
1 fig (optional)
1 edible flower (optional)
- Add banana, vegetable milk, spirulina and kiwi to the blender and blend until creamy. Attention! Do not blend for too long, otherwise the banana melts and the mass becomes liquid.
- Pour the granola into a bowl and use a spatula to spread the fruit mass over it.
- Variant 1: Decorate with fruits, sesame seeds and flowers as you like and enjoy directly.
- Or variant 2: Proceed as in variant 1, then stir the mass in the bowl and freeze again for half an hour or pour it into the ice machine, if you are have one.
