Pumpkin Cookie Dough Nice Cream

Maggie Michalczyk, RDN
Pumpkin nice cream is the perfect treat when the weathers still warm, but you're craving something pumpkin! Made with frozen bananas, the texture is like froyo, and you're getting extra nutrition from pumpkin and banana! 
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 2 hrs
Servings 5 small scoops



  • Remove the frozen bananas from the freezer and let thaw for 5 minutes. 
  • Add them to a vitamix, or any other high-speed blender with the pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla.
  • Blend on the highest speed until the bananas start to bread apart and mix with the pumpkin puree. The mixture will start to turn orange and resemble the consistency of ice cream. 
  • Scoop out of the blender and into a large bowl. 
  • With your hands, break up 4-5 pumpkin cookie dough balls into little pieces and mix the pieces into the nice cream. Add extra chocolate chips if you desire.
  • Transfer the nice cream into a loaf pan, evenly. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours at least. 
  • Use a cookie scoop to scoop out scoops just like you would regular ice cream!
