Chocolate Coconut “Nice Cream”
This Chocolate Coconut “Nice Cream” uses just four simple ingredients, making it an easy, healthy treat.
Summer is here, and you know what that means – time for delicious, frosty desserts!
Here in Whit’s Kitch, I’m all about sweets, but I also like to pack in health-promoting ingredients with my indulgences. So today, I’m sharing the recipe for my Chocolate Coconut “Nice Cream” which is sweetened naturally with fruit.
Though I do enjoy “the real stuff” on occasion, I prefer to stick to nutrient-dense whole foods desserts to satisfy my sweet tooth on a regular basis.
Today’s recipe serves as a nourishing alternative to ice cream, keeping the same consistency and sweetness, but avoiding the added sugar and milk.
You may have noticed I’m big on the dairy-free dessert swaps around here – did you see my Dairy-Free Mocha Cappuccino?!
This Chocolate Coconut “Nice Cream” has been my go-to dessert lately. It’s creamy, refreshing, and delicious, making it just what I want on a hot summer day. Or night. Or morning. (Just kidding…sort of).
What I love most is that the recipe requires just four ingredients – bananas, non-dairy milk, and cocoa powder and coconut milk powder from BareOrganics. You can also find their products through GNC.
- 4 frozen bananas
- 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 3 tablespoons coconut powder
- ¼ cup coconut milk (or non-dairy milk of choice)
- Combine in a high-powered blender or food processor until thick and creamy like ice cream.
You can top your nice cream with fruit, nuts, or cacao nibs for an extra crunch.

I cannot wait to try this. My first foray into “Nice” cream was a few weeks ago and it was delicious. But, oh, this is a chocolate version! Now we’re talkin’. I have a bag of Georgia pecans that I am going to top mine with. Now, I just have to see if I have 4 frozen bananas, or did they get consumed in my morning power shake? Thanks, Whitney, for the inspiring healthy content!
