Just because it feels like fall doesn’t mean you stop craving ice cream! Nice cream recipes are some of our most popular dessert recipes on Fit Foodie Finds and you guys are going to die over this one!

Pumpkin Pie All Day

We’ve been craving all things pumpkin for about a month and it’s barely October. Insert pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie bars, and pumpkin pancakes. The list goes on. The star of this banana nice cream is…can you guess? PUMPKIN! And? Uses our homemade pumpkin pie spice to bring things full circle.

When I say pumpkin, I am actually referring to unsweetened, canned pumpkin with no sugars or additives. You can buy it year-round, but it’s obviously very seasonal for the holidays.

What you Need

In addition to the two obvious ingredients of bananas and pumpkin, there are a few other things you’re going to need to whip up this dessert.

  • frozen banana
  • pumpkin puree
  • pumpkin pie spice
  • maple syrup
  • vanilla extract
  • almond milk

Once you compile all of your ingredients, it’s time to transfer them into a high-speed blender. The consistency of your nice cream should be like a very thick smoothie…kind of like soft-serve ice cream. The great thing about this recipe is that you can eat it as is OR freeze it for a few hours to give it more of a classic ice cream texture.

Topping Ideas

Ice cream isn’t ice cream without the toppings. I love sprinkling on a handful of whatever I have in my kitchen before freezing. Here are some ideas.

  • mini chocolate chips
  • pepitas
  • sprinkles
  • walnuts
  • coconut flakes
