Pumpkin chocolate chip soft serve


Remember that exam I took yesterday? Remember how I owned it? Becuase I did. Totally kicked it's ass from my professor's desk and back. Then I went out and celebrated with friends and mimosas. Which probably wasn't a good idea because I spent the rest of the afternoon in an unproductive haze. But that unproductive haze involved ice cream (and tequila), so I don't think it was really all that unproductive after all. Just a little slower than usual.

You can find another delicious version of this ice cream here.


1 c. frozen banana chunks
4-5 tbsp almond milk
2 tbsp pumpkin puree
2 tbsp vegan mini chocolate chips
Pinch pumpkin spice, optional

In a high powered blender (such as a Vitamix), blend the banana chunks, almond milk and pumpkin puree on high speed for 20-30 seconds (or until smooth). Add the chocolate chips and pumpkin spice, if using; blend for 10-15 seconds. Eat immideately.

Yield: 1 serving

  5. Oh wow - that's absolutely amazing looking and very timely for summer here in Australia!

  6. drooooooling. making this tomorrow. =)

  7. Oh yes, you're right. I often spend more time looking for the recipe or making the decision between several amazing recipes than actually baking.
    And the internet doesn't make it easier. While my grandma had 5 books for recipes where she would look up chocolate pie I have those 5 books plus 50 bookmarks..

    And yes, I like the pies (they are so handy for on the go) and they were my first pumpkin bake goodie.
    I just made them a bit too small so they couldn't hold a lot of the filling unfortunately. it's a bit like eating shortcake with the idea of pumpkin pie.. : )

  8. Drooling. I want to make this ASAP.

  9. Uuuuum OMG! This sounds like perfection. Must. Make. Immediately!
