So Cool: Collagen-Infused Banana Nice Cream

by Kayleigh Lockhart, @kaylskitchen - April 12, 2020

Looking to try something new for dessert? This Banana Nice Cream is well known for its mysterious flavor and bright color. As for what it tastes like, the most popular flavor consensus has been Fruit Loops™, almond, vanilla, lemon and even cotton candy. But you'll have to try this recipe yourself to see how it tastes!

If your childhood was anything like mine, blue-dyed ice cream was my go-to, no matter the flavor. But instead of adding any dye to this, I used blue spirulina to create its bright blue hue and Vital Performance™ Vanilla Protein ($29.99; shop now on vitalproteins.com) to up your daily collagen and protein intake. If you prefer your dessert to be dairy-free, "nice cream" is the perfect pick that's not only easy to make, but also tastes amazing.
