Cacao Nice Cream – Heaven in a Bowl
This Cacao Nice Cream is so uber delicious! It’s made with just a decent amount of cacao, not too much, and a little hint of vanilla. I don’t like store-bought chocolate ice cream, for whatever reason. The flavor is just too strong, I guess. But this Cacao Nice Cream is unique! Do you see how creamy it is? It’s P-E-R-F-E-C-T. Nice cream served in little jars looks more like a dessert, but why not have a healthy dessert for breakfast? And why not having breakfast more than once a day?
Actually, I rarely eat something frozen early in the morning before I go to work. One of the reasons is the noise of the food processor 🙉. At the weekend, it’s a different story. I have breakfast much later than usual, and I have more time than on weekdays, and no one complains about the noise 😬.
The flowers in this picture are ordinary primroses (also known as Primula vulgaris or English primrose) – my favorite edible flowers during late winter and early spring time. I always have a few pots with primroses on my window bench, although they love to be outside and they stop blooming very early if I don’t bring them in the garden in time. If you want to grow them in your garden, make sure to plant them in light shade in moist, but well-drained soil. They bloom for several months and are easy to handle. But enough about primroses, back to Cacao Nice Cream.
For this Cacao Nice Cream, you need frozen bananas, a low-fat cacao powder, coconut milk, vanilla bean and a few red berries and edible flowers for decoration. I always have banana chunks in my freezer for sweet cravings – no chocolate needed 😋.
