Nice cream is a vegan iced dessert made from mashed frozen bananas. It’s as creamy as soft ice cream and contains no dairy. Infinitely versatile, it’s a great way to use up overripe bananas...other than banana bread!

In food processor or blender, purée bananas until creamy, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in chocolate chips. Serve immediately for creamy texture, or scrape into airtight container and freeze until firm enough to scoop, 1 to 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Can be stored in airtight container and frozen for up to 1 week. Let rest at room temperature for a few minutes before serving.)
CHANGE IT UP: STRAWBERRY KIWI NICE CREAM
In food processor with bananas, add 1 cup frozen, sliced strawberries and 2 peeled, sliced kiwis; purée until creamy. Omit chocolate chips.
CHANGE IT UP: CARAMEL PECAN NICE CREAM
Preheat oven to 350°F. In small bowl, combine 1/2 cup chopped pecans, 2 tbsp maple syrup and pinch salt. Spread pecans on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake until pecans are caramelized, 12 to 15 minutes; let cool completely. After puréeing bananas, replace chocolate chips with caramelized pecans.
