Recipe: Picnic ‘Nice’ Cream

Recipe: Picnic ‘Nice’ Cream

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For Ice Cream!” Well I scream for Picnic ‘Nice’ Cream :p

Ice cream in summer is my kids number one favourite food. The freezer aisle is now packed full of so many wonderfully yummy flavours, it takes a while for my girls to finally decide on one tub they all like.

For almost a month I have been watching what I eat, so no ice cream for me. 🙁 Watching my girls tuck into a bowl of ice cream after their dinner was torture and it made me crave it even more, so I jumped onto Pinterest for some inspiration for a healthy version I could enjoy and found this awesome recipe, which can be made in the Thermie or food processor. 

This yummy and healthier version of ice cream doesn’t take long to make, you definitely don’t need an ice cream maker AND the best part is…It actually tastes like a picnic chocolate bar!
Simply make, freeze* and enjoy. Perfect.

I used rice malt syrup instead of the honey. I also swirled a tablespoon or so of salted caramel sauce, which made it sweet but not an overloaded sweetness and it was amazing. The recipe made enough to serve approximately 6 people or many small bowls just for yourself 😉

*When you are ready to eat this delicious treat, take it out of the freezer about 30 mins before serving, so it can ‘melt’ a little. It does freeze rock hard and isn’t instantly ‘scoopable’

You can find the recipe for Salted Caramel Sauce here.
