4 frozen bananas
1 cup pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie mix...the only ingredient should be pumpkin)
1/3 cup pure maple syrup (go for the REAL thing, you'll thank me!)
1-2 tsp. ground cinnamon*
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg*
1/4 tsp. ground ginger*
1/4 tsp. ground all spice*
1/4 tsp. ground cloves*
*Adjust spices to your flavor preference. You can also use a pre-mixed pumpkin pie spice.
Step 1: Break frozen bananas into chunks & place in food processor. Pulse several times until the bananas look like small pebbles.
Step 2: Add in 1/3 cup pure maple syrup & 1 cup pumpkin puree. Blend until almost completely smooth.
Step 3: Add the spices in the quantities mentioned above or to your flavor preference.
Blend until totally smooth.
You can eat the ice cream as a (very) soft serve at this point or spoon it into a resealable container & freeze for a few hours before serving.
I love to top it with pecans or even a few dark chocolate chips. Yum!
