All summer, I’ve been obsessed with making banana ice cream.  It is so easy to make and you can switch up the flavours to whatever you feel like having.  My favourite summer combination was frozen banana, frozen strawberries, and a splash of vanilla oat milk.  You could also try any other frozen fruit.  If you’re wondering how strong the banana flavour is, it’s not super strong once you add in the other ingredients, and you can experiment with different measurements to get the desired taste.

The main ingredient to this dessert is, of course, frozen banana.  I like to freeze a few bananas ahead of time so that I always have them ready to use.  To freeze the bananas so they don’t stick together, peel them and place them spaced apart on a baking sheet.  I let them freeze for a few hours before using them, but according to Google, they only take about two hours to freeze.

There are two ingredients that really bring out the flavour in this recipe: molasses and coconut cream.  Molasses gives the overall flavour more depth.  You don’t need much, but I found that it really complements the spices.  The coconut milk makes the ice cream creamier, making it taste even more like pumpkin pie.

Healthy Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream

Prep Time:  10 minutes

Serving size:  1-2 servings


2 bananas

3 TBSP pumpkin puree

1 tsp coconut cream

½ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp ground ginger

⅛ tsp nutmeg

A pinch of salt

½ tsp molasses

¼ tsp vanilla

A splash of plant milk (oat milk tastes best, but any other kind will work)*

The Process

  1. Throw all the ingredients into a blender

  2. Blend

  3. Top with coconut whip cream, chocolate chips, and/or cinnamon


  1. The amount of plant milk you need to add will depend on how powerful your blender is.  I have a Ninja blender and I need to add a few splashes of milk to get it to blend.  I would start with a small amount, and add more if needed.  You want the mixture to still be quite thick, like soft serve, so only add enough to make it blend smoothly.

That's it! A super easy and delicious dessert for the fall. Let me know what you think in the comments below. Thanks for reading!
