Happy Halloween & We All Scream for “Ice Cream!”

Happy Halloween everybody!  This pumpkin “ice cream” contains no dairy or cream, so don’t let the name fool you 😉 Did I mention it contains no gluten, soy, or added sugar either?! It’s super simple and can be whipped up in no time.

What you’ll need…

  • 1 frozen, sliced banana
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 pitted medjool dates
  • almond (or any type) milk to blend

Combine and blend the first four ingredients in a food processor and add a small bit of almond milk as needed, just to make sure the ice cream is creamy and smooth. I topped mine with organic raisins and the candied pecans from my last post!  Eat it right away or freeze it to save for later.

There you have it!  This “ice cream” only takes a couple minutes to make, yet is such a fun snack or ice cream substitute ❤ I made this for my family and they couldn’t believe it wasn’t real ice cream!

Fun Foodie Fact: Pumpkin contains carotenoids, which are amazing for fighting free radicals in the body!  Because of this, pumpkin is a fantastic food to eat for healthy skin.
