Are you sick of my pumpkin recipes yet?? If so…deal with it Just kidding …Gosh, can’t you take a joke?
I had a GINORMOUS can of Libby’s pumpkin leftover in the fridge, thus all the pumpkin hype these past couple weeks.
When I felt a little snacky and in need of something sweet on Saturday afternoon….the last bit of my pumpkin stored in the fridge got put to use!
-2 frozen bananas [freeze in chunks]
-2 1/2 TBSP pureed pumpkin
-2 TBSP almond butter [I use raw unsalted]
-1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice [to make see note]
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-few splashes of almond milk [or dairy free milk of choice]
-handful of chopped pecans
To make pumpkin pie spice combine 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/8 teaspoon allspice.
Layer the bananas at the bottom of your of vitamix or food processor. Add remaining ingredients excluding the pecans and almond milk. Blend while slowly adding a splash or two of almond milk to get it going…but not too much that it ends up like a milkshake. You want it to be an ice-cream consistency. Top with pecans and enjoy!
How was everyone’s weekend??
Ella and I joined my sister in laws, Z-Man, Courtney and Ella’s future boyfriend at the Walk for Wishes yesterday. Yes, Ella made me carry her the entire time. Half of the time I was carrying her and maneuvering the stroller until I made my sister in law take it. Spoiled lil’ peanut. It was only a 2 mile fun walk…but she made it more of a workout. Like carrying a 12 and 1/2 pound medicine ball on your arm for 2 miles.
We were cheering on the Phillies all weekend too!! Post season baseball in October is big around these parts!
Ella was really into the game…“Did you see that play, Daddy??!!”
