Fancy Food || Vegan Layered Blueberry-Vanilla Nicecream Parfait

Hello! I hope everyone had a wonderful start to the week! I start my semester classes this week and am so excited to be on a busy schedule again! Today I thought I’d share with you a dessert…or breakfast…or basically any meal because it is a healthy ice cream (nicecream 🙂 )! Made with bananas, it is super thick, like a soft serve! Oh, and super creamy as well. And…just look at it! It’s gorgeous, healthy, and super easy to make! It’s a wonderful alternative to ice cream (although every once in a while a good bowl of vegan ice cream is needed). So, no more of me babbling, I’ll get right to the recipe!
