Pumpkin Spice Banana Ice Cream Recipe with Cinnamon-Spiced Pecans and Pepitas

Yay for Pumpkin Spice Banana “Ice Cream”! I used a Yonanas machine to make this delicious (and healthy) fall pumpkin treat and no added sugar is necessary. Eat on it’s own, or top with Cinnamon Spiced Pecans and Pepitas.

Pumpkin Spice Banana Ice Cream with Cinnamon-Spiced Pecans and Pepitas

First make the spiced pumpkins and pepitas. You can totally make extra and eat for a yummy treat, or sprinkle on yogurt, oatmeal, or even roasted sweet potatoes as a delicious garnish. Then use a Yonanas machine (or food processor) to make the Pumpkin-Spice Banana Ice Cream. Sprinkle the pepitas and pecans over the top, drizzle with a little maple syrup if you like, and enjoy!

Spiced Pecans & Pepitas Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon butter

  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

  • 1/4 cup pepitas

  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar (or white or brown sugar)

  • dash salt

Directions:

Melt butter in small pan over medium heat.  Add pecans, pepitas, spice, sugar and salt.  Cook, stirring frequently, until pecans are toasted and pepitas are golden brown.   Remove from heat and allow to cool.


Next make the “ice cream!” I used my Yonanas machine which turns frozen bananas into a creamy “ice cream.” You can also use a food processor, but the texture won’t be as creamy as traditional ice cream.

I bought my Yonanas machine on Amazon. There is a fancy version available now, but I have the inexpensive “classic” model which is about $39 on Amaon. You can check the current price here: Yonanas Classic
