Peach & Blueberry Nicecream

Have you ever heard of nicecream?  This term was totally made up by the vegan community.  That’s my guess, anyway. It translates to: banana ice cream. If you have ever experienced the joys of having a vitamix, you have probably made nicecream because of the blender’s wonderful, god-given power to blend 3 frozen bananas with 1/8 cup of liquid.

“Nicecream” is it’s own category, but all it really defines is the texture. It is a creamier, firmer substance versus your average smoothie or juice. You eat it with a spoon, for instance. This nicecream consists of 1 frozen banana, although 3 would have been nice, and is made mostly of blueberries because of the abundant amount we picked last week. The key to this smoothie, however, is the peaches.

In my Grilled Peaches post from a few days ago, I mentioned we went blueberry picking but saw a peaches stand on the way.  We got some really fresh, juicy, and ripe peaches from Fredericksburg, Texas. I decided to chop and freeze them and see if we can make some magic happen.  Low and behold, they turned out to be the best part about this nicecream.

**CUTENESS ALERT!! Kiwi decided to hop in and photo bomb :D**





  • 1/2 cup chopped, frozen peaches
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/8 cup of almond milk (or more if needed)
  • 2 TBS almond butter


  1. In a high powered blender like a Vitamix, add the fruit and milk. Set to a high setting and blend until the blender struggles – and it will because of the small amount of liquid. Stop and frequently spoon down the sides and stirring to help the blender, adding more milk if need be. Use your judgement on this ‘nicecream’ part.
  2. Once you have the blender working well, add the almond butter to blend again.

For toppings, I suggest more almond butter and a sprinkle of Enjoy Life Dairy Free Chocolate Chips. I could also see these being frozen to make fruit popsicles. Yum.
