Strawberry Banana Nicecream

This is a non-dairy frozen fruit blend. Because every ingredient is perfectly healthy (and it's really just a more solid version of a smoothie) you can eat it for breakfast too! You'll need a strong blender. I used my Vitamix and made liberal use of the tamper attachment. Process 2 frozen bananas, a little vanilla, a few frozen strawberries, a pinch of orange zest, and enough almond milk to get things moving (but not turned into a smoothie). If you like your "nicecream" sweeter, then add stevia extract, honey, or agave syrup. Acai berry powder would also be a good addition if you want its extra tang flavor. A little bit of your favourite vanilla protein powder works too, if you want a more substantial meal out of this. I also dropped a few dried strawberries through the open lid of the blender while it was churning. They added a nice chewy texture; kind of like a traditional ice cream's cookie-dough. Garnish with caramel-y mulberries or cacao nibs.
