Here is another delicious nice cream breakfast bowl recipe for you today. They make such good, nourishing breakfasts getting you ready for the day ahead! The nice cream in this recipe is so good and is probably better than any vanilla ice cream that I have ever tried before! The good thing with making a vanilla nice cream is that you can literally put anything that you would like on the top as it will go with everything. I just can’t believe how simple, quick and delicious nice cream is and on top of all that it is healthy for you! You cannot go wrong making this! At the moment there are so many delicious fruits that are in season, so you can be as creative as you would like with the toppings. As I have said before in other recipes, use this as a general guide to create your own favourite versions with your favourite fruits and seeds etc.
