Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

My friend, Crissy, has been sharing all these luscious looking healthy and homemade ice cream recipes lately. I thought it would fun to share one for fall too. The key to dairy-free ice cream is frozen bananas! They give it a creamy ice cream-like consistency that not only tastes great, but is guilt-free too. Add in a little bit o pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice and maple syrup and voilà! Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream. Now if that isn’t a fall flavour, then I don’t know what is.

For equipment, use your food processor or blender. No ice cream maker required. I don’t even own one anyway!

Now has is that for decadence? SO SO GOOD! This recipe serves two adults, but if you’re especially hungry, you may want to eat it all yourself. Don’t worry, I won’t judge.

I’m working on more pumpkin recipes this month. When I told you to prepare for pumpkin everything in my post about Pumpkin Pie Spice I meant it. I live for this time of year and am always sad to see it end. Mostly, it will be pumpkin desserts, but you never know, I may have a savoury pumpkin recipe to share. We’ll see.

Crissy also has a pumpkin cookie recipe that everyone is going nuts for right now. Check out these Melt-in-your-Mouth Pumpkin Cookies and you’ll see why!

Do you ever make your own ice cream?
