Frozen Banana Ice Cream {recipe}

I want to introduce you to my favorite little treat:

We always have two bananas sliced and in the freezer.
When we're craving a tasty treat we just pull them out. 
It's seriously better then homemade ice cream {in my opinion}.
Addi always approves of our go to:

1-2 frozen bananas
1-2 tablespoons of peanut butter

Blend in the food processor or blending until smooth. 
It will be be crumbly, but just pulse it and give it time.
You can add a splash of milk and it creates a smooth deliciousness.

 Tonight we found a new favorite! 
I love all things fall and pumpkin, 
however this fall I struck out on a lot of pumpkin recipes.
Tonight we struck gold!!!!!

Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream

2 frozen bananas
1/4 cup pureed pumpkin
1/4 almond milk
1/8 teaspoon allspice
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon pure maple syrup (optional)

Blend and enjoy a bowl full of bliss! 

The thing I love the most about this ice cream is:
 * it's delicious
* I don't miss regular ice cream at all
* I get to eat ice cream guilt free 
* it's nutritious so it fills me up and lasts


  1. I LOVE frozen bananas. I like to cut them in half and stick a pop cycle stick in them and then dip them and chocolate and freeze! It's the best little treat. I might have to try the pumpkin stuff for Nick. He loves anything with pumpkin in it. Me, not so much.

    1. Thanks for stoping by Stephanie! Nick did like all my pumpkin icecream pictures on Instagram. I'm sure he would love it. Super simple and yummy.
