My 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Nice Cream recipe is so easy to make and surprisingly tasty!
When I created this recipe I thought I was going to write about being the type of person who has no problem eating ice cream or nice cream even with it's cold. I thought that would kind of explain my rationale for creating a icy dessert just as the weather was turning crisp. I love ice cream year round. Period.
But then the start of fall came and went and the mountains are still well into the 80's each day. So basically I've rethought this whole Pumpkin Nice Cream thing and really it's just about the perfect dessert for right now. Maybe I just had a hunch or something.
If you aren't' familiar with nice cream, it's basically blended fruit with added flavors to create a frozen dessert that gives you the feeling of eating ice cream without actually eating ice cream.
Not that I have anything against eating ice cream, trust me I do that too. But I think there is a time and place in life for both the "real" treats and the healthier versions like this.
Now you'd never believe when you eat this sweet pumpkin-y goodness that there are hidden bananas in there... but holy moly somehow it tastes like pumpkin pie. This whole recipe comes together with only THREE ingredients and no added sugar.
And yes, it really does taste like pumpkin pie. Oh... and it just happens to be vegan, gluten free and all around magical. My Pumpkin Nice Cream recipe is a must try this fall.
So while I imagine the freakishly warm fall is not going to stick around forever, I firmly believe that this Pumpkin Nice Cream recipe should! It's just that good.

3 Ingredient Pumpkin Nice Cream
- 4 Frozen Bananas
- ¾ cup Pumpkin Puree, (not pumpkin pie mix)
- 1 teaspoon Pumpkin Spice
- In a food processor mix together all of the ingredients. Serve immediately or if you'd like pretty scoops like the picture smooth the mixture into a container with a flat bottom. Pop it back into the freezer and once harder use an ice cream scooper to get out.
Thanks for stopping by today! Tomorrow I’m sharing some of my weekly highlights.
