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.

How to Make Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream without Ice Cream Machine

Can I Double this Ice Cream Recipe
Of course! You are welcome to make as much as you would like. Just ensure you have room in your blender or food processor. Or batch make it, and then pour into containers and toss in the freezer.
How Long Will Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream Store in Freezer
If you store the ice cream properly you can store it in the freezer for up to three months. Just scoop and enjoy. We eat ours rather fast, so it has never lasted that long. But this is also a small-batch dessert, so I normally only make what we will eat at the time.
Why Use Frozen Bananas for Ice Cream
You need to have your bananas frozen or you won’t get that creamy ice cream texture. If you use ripe fresh bananas that are room temperature it will be mushy vs creamy like you want. So don’t skip the time to toss those bananas in the freezer.
I tend to just slice and freeze any bananas that are close to going to the overripe realm. Then when I get a craving for something sweet I can whip up this ice cream in a hurry.
What Can I Use in Place of Maple Syrup in Recipe
If you don’t want to use maple syrup you could reach for honey or even agave liquid to use. This is what is going to help add a sweetness to your ice cream recipe. Feel free to play around with the amount of agave you need in terms of sweetness if you want to replace the maple syrup.
