Hemp Nice Cream

A plant based nice cream made with just few ingredients.

Nice Cream

I am such a fan of Hemp seeds! They are rich in healthy fats and are a great high-quality proteins and minerals source.  I use them as a topping on smoothies or soups, and quite often I blend them to make a dairy-free cream or as in this case to make smoothies and ice creams. 
A plus for me is that I can easily find Hemp seeds produced either in Switzerland or in Europe, because I usually make an effort to limit my use of imported products (the bananas here are coming from Spain, which is the closest country I can get them from).

This recipe is faster if made as a smoothie, but if you have more time, you can put the blend in the freezer to obtain a thicker consistency, like an ice cream, as in my picture.

Instructions

  • If possible, take out the bananas and the frozen milk out of the freezer 5 to 10 minutes before preparing your nice cream.

    Adjust the thickness according to your preference: add some more rice milk or water to obtain a smoothie or put it in the freezer for another 30 minutes for an even harder consistency. 
  • Sprinkle with berries or granola.

Notes

It’s not necessary to to freeze the milk before, but this will help to obtain a thicker smoothie or nice cream. 
I always keep in the freezer some frozen milk, that i put in an ice cube tray or in a tupperware.
