banana split nice cream

I get cold every time I eat frozen desserts. I mean shivering under a blanket and my rings don’t fit anymore cold. And I hate to be cold. So why do I insist on putting myself through that? Why am I, even now as I type, sitting in front of a bowl of delicious green nice cream with a cup of coffee beside me so I can try and maintain some level of body temperature?? Because every shiver and every trip out into the 90-degree heat to thaw out, is completely and totally worth the amazingness that is the healthy, banana-based, guilt-free dessert they call nice cream.


Here is a new addition to my growing list of recipes and variations on this wonderful treat: I call it Banana Split Nice Cream. Here’s how I made it:
