Cherry Pecan Ice Cream – Made the Nice Way!

Ice cream doesn’t last very long in our house. My boys go crazy over it! But when I discovered “nice cream”, that became a game changer for all of us. Homemade ice cream (nice) is quick, easy, and delicious. This tasty treat will make you want to keep a steady supply of frozen, sliced bananas in your freezer.

From start to finish, this recipe can be ready to serve within 10 minutes with a consistency similar to soft serve ice cream. However, if you prefer a firmer texture, pour the mixture into a freezer-safe container and place in the freezer until it reaches the desired consistency.  

Whole milk was used to create this recipe. However, you can use your choice of milk, cream, or non-dairy alternatives, such as almond milk, instead. Plant-based alternatives will affect the flavor, however. For richer results, add a splash of heavy cream while blending.
