Fall is upon us so that means: Pumpkin everything!! The inter-webs are chalk full of pumpkin recipes so today I am sharing a recipe I found on Facebook. Pumpkin Ice Cream.
Yes. Pumpkin ice cream. The best part? It’s diary free!! So it’s uber healthy.
1 cup of pumpkin puree (I used Libby’s organic)
1/3 cup of maple syrup (I used light maple syrup)
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin spice
The instructions are simple you blend everything together but for the sake of this blog and for me since I don’t have a fancy Nurta Bullet but a regular old blender I broke everything down for you!
First I cut up all the bananas then placed them in the blender:
Next, I blended them all together first that way it was easier on the blender here’s my lovely banana mush:
Now add your pumpkin puree I choose organic just to be extra healthier it doesn’t matter whatever your preference is! 🙂
I did blend the pumpkin and bananas together here’s a picture of it blended then me adding the syrup:
Last add the pumpkin spice:
Then blend it all together one more time at the highest setting.
Now place it in a container:
From the looks of it doesn’t look like much serving wise but for me it’s perfect. So I suppose you can double the recipe or just make another batch if you’re wanting more. Of course after this stick it in your freezer to freeze.
Now after I made it a week ago I totally forgot about it oops. You can’t write a blog post about a recipe without trying it. So yesterday I took it out of the freezer:
I had to thaw it out for about a minute to get a bit softer to work with. The reason I made the ice cream was for smoothies because I’ve been to trying to find the perfect pumpkin smoothie recipe. So again I got my blender, adding about 2 scoops of the ice cream, then some milk now I used what I had which is your average low fat milk. I’m sure you can use almond milk or skim if that’s your preference. Again it’s all about trail and error. I did a little bit more pumpkin spice before I blended everything.
I poured the mix into a glass topped with a little bit of whipped cream and enjoyed!
Until next time!
