A while back she shared a few of her family's favorite recipes with me. This one required ripe bananas. You would think that wouldn't be a problem, except somehow all of my ripe bananas have ended up in baked goods lately. I haven't been able to help it. They have just called out to be baked. So I finally stumbled upon a group of ripe bananas that really wanted to be frozen. That is all it took, magic was made!
This "ice cream" comes together in just a few minutes with just a few ingredients. With all of the bananas, it really does fill you up and it has a great texture. You feel like you are really giving yourself a treat and you are doing your body a favor!
Healthy Pumpkin "Ice Cream"
4 large very ripe bananas, frozen
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1-2 tsp honey
optional additions: cinnamon, vanilla, PB2, chocolate chips (Chris said they really like it with PB2 or vanilla, I added cinnamon to ours)
- In a food processor blend together the frozen bananas and pumpkin until smooth and creamy.
- Slowly add in honey and blend until you get the level of sweetness you would like.
- Add any optional add-ins you'd like.
- You can of course eat it as it is, but if you want it to be scoopable you will need to freeze it for at least a couple of hours. Let sit on the counter for a few minutes to soften before scooping.
