During last weeks we have finally got some spring vibes and sunny days as well – but it still snowed couple of weeks ago, can you imagine? I know, me neither, but unfortunately we had to experience it a while ago, ha.
Luckily that is over now (hopefully) and we can start enjoying spring for real. At least I started enjoying it with nice creams, that I deeply love but as I’m cold sensitive, I rarely eat nice creams before it gets a but warmer (and here in Finland it seems it can take a while…), so when spring comes the first nice cream feels quite special.
As I’m quite impatient I usually make fast nice creams, with blender, without ice cream maker (that I don’t even actually even own). I always keep frozen bananas in my freezer, and as a berry lover, I have tons of self picked berries still from last summer as well. Our whole family loves these kind of ice creams, and to be honest, my daughter has never even tasted anything else, and there’s no need for it either!
Nice creams came to Finland couple of years ago, when my friend (and namesake) Tuulia and Virpi published their super popular Nice Cream book. After this book the blenders around the world has been mixing nice creams after nice creams, since their book was published in six countries all together. I know – wow. If you don’t know the book yet, you should totally check it out!
But now, let’s continue to this easy, fast and super soft nice cream recipe! There are only a few ingredients, and it’s super delicious – it’s a promise!
Wishing you lovely nice cream moments and spring vibes ♥
