Dark Chocolate Almond Nice Cream

Meets nutrition guidance set by the American Diabetes Association®

Who doesn’t love a delicious scoop of ice cream—or should we say “nice cream”? Instead of dairy milk, the base of this decadent dessert is frozen bananas. Natural almond butter is included to pump up the creaminess and protein. Top with sliced almonds for extra protein and a crunch! And unlike regular ice cream, this one has no added sugars—it’s sweetened with zero calorie Splenda® Granulated Sweetener!

  1. In a food processor, pulse bananas, half of the cocoa powder, Splenda Sweetener, and salt until pea-sized chunks form. Add vanilla extract and the rest of the cocoa powder.  Continue to pulse. Mixture will gather together and form a frozen soft-serve ice-cream consistency. Drizzle in almond butter and pulse twice more.
  2. Scoop into bowls and serve topped with almonds; or, stir in almonds, place in a freezer-safe container and enjoy within 3 days.


  • Toast almonds for a deeper, delicious flavor
  • Keep sliced bananas in a zip top bag in the freezer to have them ready on hand for making nice cream any time
