Chai ‘nice cream’

Chai_Nice_Cream_002

Introducing ‘chia nice cream’! This little bowl of goodness takes a few extra minutes of prep (I suppose it doesn’t have to if your creative with your spices) but it is worth it! About 5 minutes prep the day before makes this a delicious treat whenever your ready and in the mood for a little spicy sweet treat!

Ingredients

2 peeled and frozen bananas
1/2 cup cold brewed chai tea (see instructions)
4 chia ice cubes
dash or nutmeg
dash of cinnamon

Instructions

We brewed two chia tea bags in hot water and let them steep for about 10 minutes. I added a generous squirt of agave and then poured them into ice cube trays and froze them. Leaving about 1/2 cup of chia tea to put in the refrigerator to be used in the ‘nice cream’. When ready to make, blend all ingredients in a high speed blender. Enjoy! We sprinkled nutmeg and granola on top of ours… wouldn’t have changed a thing!

Mint_Nice_Cream_001

The Wang’s most favorite… mint-chip nice cream. This happens almost (cough cough) EVERY night… don’t know how proud I am of that… but its the truth… just about every night the blender disturbs half the neighborhood… but just seconds later… you have maybe the best dessert ever. I mean, for being healthy of course. Please try!

Ingredients

3 frozen bananas (peeled of course)
1/2 cup frozen spinach (this is more for color than nutrients so don’t go too crazy)
About 1 cup of almond or coconut milk (depending on how thick you like it… less milk = thick nice cream)
1 tablespoon honey (give or take depending on your desired level of sweetness)
10-12 mint leaves (I have never used too many… just saying!)

Instructions

Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender. Enjoy! We topped ours with cocoa nibs. It was unreal! So good!
