I’ve partnered with Premier Protein to bring y’all this Raspberry & Blueberry Banana Protein “Ice Cream”.All opinions are mine alone. Thanks so much for supporting the brands that keep this Srilankan Runnin!
It’s funny how quickly things change. One second I am rocking a mega green thumb, and then the next, I’m killing every plant in sight – even the cilantro hanging out on the counter in a water-filled glass tumbler!
Most summers by the end of June, all the veggies that I had planted in Spring start to flourish, gifting us with homegrown tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers for our salads. But this year, the tomatoes are playing peek-a-boo, the bell peppers are testing my patience and the cucumber plant – why it just looks pathetic!
Come to think of it now, I am so glad I didn’t bring home that banana tree my daughter and I saw at a local nursery. Instead, I’ll depend on my trusty grocery stores to provide me with all the bananas I can carry home. Most summers, my daughter and I end up eating our weight in banana pops, but, this year, it’s been banana “ice cream” – also called banana “nice” cream, or simply “nice” cream.
I’ve been seeing Banana “ice cream” on Instagram for awhile now, but didn’t try it till Amanda @ Running With Spoons posted her recipe for a Banana “Ice Cream” Breakfast Parfait, and I have been hooked since.

The possibilities are endless with banana “ice cream” – you can twist it and turn it and add to it and the result is wonderfully refreshing – always! And, for my lactose intolerant gut – the result is oh so delightfully friendly! 😆
Most banana “ice creams” involve just one ingredient, and that’s frozen sliced bananas that are blended to a cream. Flavors are added in in the form of fruit or chocolate or whatever your heart desires. However, for the Raspberry & Blueberry Banana Protein “Ice Cream” I have here, I used a bit of Premier Protein’s Vanilla Shake to give this dessert a protein boost. I also made two versions, one with the raspberries and blueberries simply plonked in; and the other, with the berries blended into it. Both were creamy and luscious – and… maybe one of them will convince you to substitute one of your weekly ice cream servings with a flavored banana “nice” cream?
