Butterfinger Nice Cream

Banana for Butterfingers.

We’re back with another twist on banana-based nice cream. This time around, the banana nice cream recipe draws inspiration from a Culver’s classic – the concrete mixer – by adding a generous mix of Butterfinger pieces for a decadent summer treat.

For a quick refresh or those not familiar with the term – nice cream is essentially a plant-based “healthier” ice cream. In this case, the plant portion is banana, which definitely elevates any smoothie with an ice cream-like consistency. The addition of almond butter really seals the deal, by adding a rich, fat component to really match the consistency of soft serve ice cream. The best part is, it’s a super simple summer recipe, requiring just some pantry staples – and butterfingers!
