Strawberry-Banana Nice Cream

Recipe by: Dr. Michael Greger & Robin Robertson from The How Not to Die Cookbook
I scream, you scream, we all scream for NICE cream! We can’t get enough of this dessert in our household—both this specific recipe and easy-to-make, delicious variations.  For MATCHA: Simply blend two ingredients—powdered matcha green tea and blended frozen bananas—before freezing. (Please make sure the matcha is sourced from Japan, not China, due to lead contamination concerns.)

  • 4 bananas frozen (break into chunks before freezing)
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1 cup strawberries sliced
  • 1 piece split and scraped vanilla bean or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Combine the bananas and almond butter in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Add the strawberries and vanilla and pulse to mix well, leaving a few solid bits of strawberry throughout. Transfer the nice cream to an airtight container and freeze for 30 minutes for a soft texture or for 1 to 2 hours for a firmer texture. If the nice cream becomes too hard to scoop, let it stand at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
  • TIP: Keep a stash of ripe banana chunks in the freezer to make delicious soft-serve nice cream (and smoothies) in minutes.
