Strawberry Maca (Protein) Nice Cream

Well, I have some more nice cream for you, I hope you don't mind? 

As I was making my usual nice cream the other day, and pondering what flavor I should use, it hit me that I had neglected to try one of the founding flavors, one of the originals, one of the most basic and well known variations of ice cream there is...strawberry!!! But I couldn't just make strawberry you see, I decided to throw in some maca as well, and why not add some more protein with tofu? So I waited as my little Nutribullet whirled away (happily back from the dead), evilly tapping my fingers together, with a very suspicious look on my face. I did this for absolutely no reason at all, and afterwards I felt a bit silly. But the nice cream made up for it, for it was like revisiting my childhood bowl of strawberry ice cream, minus all the sugar and gunk . . .*sigh*  Good times, goooood times .   *falls into a glazed eye stupor while reminiscing about past*  *random person clears throat* *jumps* Woah, what was I talking about again . . . nice cream, right. Do yourself a favor and make some. You might even get lost in thought like I did! :0D

Strawberry Maca Protein Nice Cream with coconut, mulberries, cacao nibs, and sliced almonds, accompanied by one of my many sock monkeys.

Strawberry Maca (Protein) Nice Cream
-3 chopped and frozen bananas
-1/2 c frozen strawberries
-1 tsp maca powder
-1/3 c tofu (optional)
-milk of choice

The day before you plan on making nice cream, peel, chop, and freeze your bananas. When you are ready to eat, combine all the ingredients (start with about 3-4 tbsp of milk) in a high speed blender or food processor, and process/blend until creamy and smooth. If necessary, add more milk, a tablespoon at a time, until everything is combined. Transfer nice cream to a bowl, top with anything you want, and enjoy!
