Banana Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

How to Make Ice Cream from Frozen Bananas

 

Woohoo it is definitely time for fall treats and I am in full swing! I’ve made ice cream before, and it was a lot easier than I thought. I came across several different recipes for ice cream made out of frozen bananas and thought that it sounded interesting. Plus, so many of my friends are dairy-free for a host of different reason, so I’ve tried my fair share of vegan ice creams and decided to take a stab at my own. I found out through some recipe research that bananas naturally contain lots of pectin, the stuff that makes them sticky, which is commonly used in jams and jellies to make them thicken. Thus making bananas great for ice cream because once they are blended, they have a creamy texture without all the, um, cream. A little pumpkin and some spices and voila, an easy treat! Check out the end of the post to see my describe how to make this treat and some Mini Pumpkin Spice Pop- Tarts on Good Day Austin!

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

Begin by slicing bananas and freezing for about 2 hours.

Next, place frozen bananas into a blender or food processor. Mix until smooth. Add almond milk 2 tablespoons at a time as needed until blended.

Add spices and pumpkin and puree until smooth.

Place into to a freezer safe container. Drizzle with chocolate sauce if you want.

You can eat it now, it will be more like frozen yogurt. Or freeze again for an hour or overnight.

Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches

Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches_Natalie Paramore1Let’s talk about cookies and their importance in life. There’s something about them that are so comforting and well delicious. My favorite of all time happen to be snickerdoodles with my Granny’s recipe. I’ve recently been a really big fan of salted chocolate chip, because yeah, just yeah. Or what about these with potato chips? I see those in my near future fo sho.  I remember my mom would always hide oreos from me… and my Dad, probably more him, ha. They would be in a pink glass jar, waaaaay in the back of the tallest cabinet. I think this is where my monkey tendencies in the kitchen began. I could pull up a chair then climb the cabinet like a ladder, pull half my body into the cabinet to find that jar. An entire package of oreos fit perfectly into that jar, minus one, because you always had to eat one while putting them away. I still remember that jar. Really wish I could find it now. I loved sinking oreos into the bottom of a glass of milk, then drinking all the milk and eating the oreo mush with a spoon. I still think about this every time I eat cookies ‘n cream ice cream haha. So this post isn’t about oreos, but the classic chocolate chip cookie. And just in time for summer, let’s cool it down with some ice cream and call it a day, eh?

This post was sponsored by H-E-B and their #PrimoPicks. This months box came with a big red bag of cookies and you betcha I dove into those. While I was making the cookie sandwiches I literally had to pull the bag from my friends little paws because they were so good on their own. I had to lay down the law and no more ruining your dessert ladies!
