Summer is coming and so is our lust for ice cream! Don’t feel guilty when enjoying real creamy ice cream, but if you want it to be a little lighter, you can always opt for nice cream: a vegan and guilt-free alternative for ice cream. I’ve shared my recipe for regular nice cream in a previous blogpost, but this recipe is a variation: stracciatella nice cream!

Did you know stracciatella could mean 3 different types of Italian food? It can be either used for an egg drop soup, for a variety of soft Italian buffalo cheese from the Apulia region or for an Italian ice cream variety with chocolate flakes. Today, we are making a healthy gelato: nice cream with chocolate chips!

Stracciatella nice cream


  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 5 tbsp vanilla soy milk
  • 30g chocolate chips and a little bit extra for topping


  • Slice the 3 bananas in thin slices and put them in a box. Put the box in the freezer for 2 hours.
  • After 2 hours, take the box out of the freezer and blend the banana slices with the vanilla soy milk in a food processor until fully combined.
  • Chop the chocolate chips is small pieces and add them to your nice cream mixture. Stir well until the chocolate is evenly spread in the mixture.
  • Transfer the nice cream in a box of 500ml and put it back in the freezer for 3 more hours. Top if off with extra chocolate chips before freezing.
  • Ready! Enjoy!
