Pumpkin Seed Nicecream

Pumpkin Seed Nicecream

Sounds odd but tastes SO GOOD. Clearly one of my new favourites.

I was inspired at a yoga fair in Stuttgart where they sold pumpkin seed ice cream sweetened with dates. The two girls selling this vegan ice cream were so kind to let me try all sorts and pumpkin seed was the one that kept stuck in my head for days after I left the fair. A new idea was born: PUMPKIN SEED NICECREAM!

The difference between nicecream and regular ice cream is that nicecream uses frozen bananas as a base. As you guys know, fruit is healthy, fruit is good. Fruit is the food humans feel most attracted to in nature. And it basically digests without any efforts thanks to the naturally occurring enzymes in its raw state. It’s our perfect food. That’s why I love nicecream! Feels like eating ice cream (everybody loves ice cream) but you’re actually eating frozen fruit. It’s the ultimate health cheat!

For those of you who have never heard of pumpkin seed life: YOU’VE BEEN MISSING OUT. Just like me. But it’s always fun to discover new ingredients, isn’t it? 🙂

I got my pumpkin seed butter (Kürbiskernmus) from Greenist. You can get 15% off your whole order at Greenist if you use the code ‘laurafruitfairy’ at the checkout. For other product recommendations, just drop me a message on Facebook. 🙂

Now let’s make nicecream!


500g frozen banana(s)
2 Tbs pumpkin seed butter
  • Medium



Peel ripe, spotty bananas, break them into pieces and freeze in an air-tight container overnight. (I recommend at least 8 hours.)


Add 500g frozen bananas to a blender and defrost for about 10 minutes. If you have a strong blender of food processor you can skip the defrosting time.


Add 1 Tbs pumpkin seed butter to the blender and pulse until homogenous. Work with a tamper and different speed levels to turn your frozen bananas into beautifully smooth ice cream. If your blender isn't strong enough, add a little water or plant milk to facilitate blending.


Serve in a bowl and swirl in the other 1 Tbs pumpkin seed butter. Add other toppings of your choice.
