One of the key ingredients in this recipe is frozen bananas. By keeping a stock of sliced frozen bananas in your freezer, you can effortlessly whip up this delicious treat in no time. The process from start to finish takes a mere 10 minutes, resulting in a soft serve-like consistency that will leave you wanting more. However, if you prefer a firmer texture, simply transfer the mixture to a freezer-safe container and allow it to freeze until it reaches your desired consistency.

While the recipe suggests using whole milk, feel free to experiment with your choice of milk, cream, or non-dairy alternatives like almond milk. It’s worth noting that plant-based alternatives may slightly impact the flavor, so keep that in mind when making your selection. For those seeking an extra indulgent touch, a splash of heavy cream can be added during the blending process, resulting in a richer final product.

To ensure the best results, opt for frozen cherries. The frozen cherries lend a refreshing tartness and a burst of vibrant color to the “nice” cream. Rinsing them briefly under warm water and chopping them up will allow them to incorporate seamlessly into the mixture. Don’t forget to add the crunchy element with chopped pecans, which add a delightful nuttiness and a satisfying texture to the overall experience.

The preparation time for this recipe is a mere 10 minutes, excluding any additional freezing time. Once you’ve blended the frozen bananas with honey, vanilla extract, salt, and milk, you’ll achieve a smooth and creamy base. Should you find that the mixture requires more liquid, simply add additional milk or cream, one tablespoon at a time, until you reach the desired consistency.
