Banana Nice Cream:
6-8 frozen bananas broken into chunks
1 tsp of vanilla
Blueberry Nice Cream
8 medjool dates soaked in 2 cups of warm water for 30 minutes, save water and pit dates
2 cups of frozen blueberries
¼ cup of chia seeds
This recipe will be done in 2 parts in a Vitamix Blender. I use the smaller 48 ounce container to do nice creams in.
First Part: Banana Nice Cream
Put bananas in the blender with ½ cup of the soaking water and 1 tsp of vanilla. Blend this up- using the tamper to push down the bananas.
Put this nice cream in a bowl (big enough to hold both nice creams). You can leave some of the banana nice cream in the blender container- it will blend nicely with the blueberries.
Part 2: Blueberry Nice Cream
Put blueberries, chia seeds, dates and ½ cup of the date soaking liquid into blender container and blend up. Put this mixture in the bowl so that both nice creams are side by side.
Using a spatula gently blend the 2 nice creams together so they are swirled.
Put into a nice bowl or glass and top with coconut shreds and frozen blueberries.
