Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie, Oh My!

If you want to make a dessert that is easy, healthy and delicious, with no baking, no sugar and the 'pumpkin-y' taste of Thanksgiving, freeze some bananas, buy some fresh pumpkin and try out this recipe!

Start with the crust, which is made up entirely of almonds and dates - approx. 3 handfuls of almonds and 10 dates - chop in your food processor and mush into pie dish to cover the bottom.

Steam about 2 cups worth of fresh pumpkin (or use canned in a pinch) and combine with spices in food processor - mix in cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, (soaked) dates, vanilla and anything else you like. Freeze in an ice cube tray for a few hours, pop them out, set aside about 6 cubes for this recipe and save the rest for another time.

Chop the frozen bananas (approx. one per person) into small pieces, and combine with a handful of walnuts, a drop of vanilla and the 6 pumpkin cubes to form a thick creamy mixture to go on top of your pie crust. Freeze until serving time.


Hope you enjoy...have a happy & healthy Thanksgiving!
