why i love this chocolate nice cream
Not only is it deeeelicious, but it’s SO simple to make! It literally only takes 4 ingredients, most of which you will probably already have in your kitchen! This recipe also comes together pretty quickly. If you keep some frozen bananas on hand then it cuts the time down even more. Throw all the ingredients in a blender and you’re done in mere minutes! You can also serve this nice cream two ways. Either serve immediately for a more soft serve type consistency, or stick it in the freezer for a couple of hours for it to harden up for better scooping. Both ways are super tasty, so it’s all up to how patient (or impatient) you are at the moment!
