Utah Peach Nice Cream

“Nice cream” is the term for puréed frozen bananas that resemble soft serve ice cream. For this version, we added peak-of-season Utah grown peaches and froze them ourselves. You can substitute peaches from the freezer section if desired, but if you do, you may need to add a small amount of maple syrup to sweeten.

In a food processor, add frozen peaches and bananas. Let sit at room temperature to thaw slightly, about 5 minutes.

Add vanilla, oatmilk, and maple syrup, if using, to food processor. Pulse until fruit starts to break into smaller pieces. Use a spatula to occasionally stir mixture. It may take up to 10 minutes to fully puree. The finished product will resemble soft serve ice cream.

Serve immediately for very soft “nice” cream. If it has started to melt too much, place in a container and freeze for 1 hour. For firmer “nice” cream, freeze for 4 hours. Once frozen, let nice cream thaw slightly to make it easier to scoop.
