I felt like making something else with pumpkin yesterday. I found a pin for a blog with Clean Eating Pumpkin Ice Cream. Sounds good eh? The recipe was easy enough and I had everything I needed.
I made it but things didn't go so well. I'll explain.
First you have to slice up and freeze 4 bananas. I did that in the morning. The blogger says to freeze overnight. Mine were frozen pretty good by the evening. So, I put the frozen banana slices into my mini food processor to blend. WARNING: I guess the mini isn't good for things like this. :(
It burned out just as most of the bananas were done blending. I had to use my blender to finish blending and now my mini is in the trash. :(
4 frozen sliced bananas
1 cup pumpkin
sugar free syrup
almond milk unsweetened (optional)
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Once everything was blended here's what it looked like. You are supposed to put in a freezer safe container and freeze 24 hours.
I pulled it out this afternoon (24 hours later) and it's as hard as a rock. I wanted creamy. BOO!!!
I microwaved for a minute and then put in fridge.
I was finally able to scoop some ice cream out.
It's good but not my favorite. I could take it or leave it.
I don't know why the bananas have to be frozen before you blend??? I would think you could blend them up while they are soft. I'm thinking if I try making this again then I will mix in some homemade vanilla extract, and maybe some cinnamon too. We'll see.
