Banana ice cream is so customizable too. I have made Oatmeal cookie banana ice cream, Chocolate peanut butter banana protein ice cream, Mint chocolate chip protein ice cream and 3-ingredient strawberry banana ice cream. Since it is the fall and I am not ready to give up frozen treats just yet, I decided to make some pumpkin spice banana ice cream.
This "ice cream" is made with real canned pumpkin, frozen fresh bananas, a little milk and maple syrup, protein for nutrition and to make it filling and pumpkin pie spice. That's it! Just 6 real ingredients that take only 5 minutes to whip into ice cream and is much healthier than ice cream made with whipping cream, sugar, etc.
Pumpkin Spice Banana Ice Cream
Prep Time: 5 minutes
- 3 large bananas, broken into pieces and frozen
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling), frozen
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
Process all ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Eat immediately or freeze in storage containers or mason jars until later.
