Healthy Pumpkin Soft Serve

Do you want that pumpkin pie fix, but without all of the sugar and fat? I definitely have something for you. It’s super easy to make, has minimal ingredients and is a great post-soup treat! It works a bit like banana soft-serve, so you can either eat it when it’s a bit liquid-y or freeze it for 45 minutes until it hardens a little.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Frozen Pumpkin (Not pumpkin filling! Pure pumpkin)
  • 1/2 Cup Non-Dairy Milk
  • 3 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice

Directions:

  1. Throw all of the ingredients in either a high-speed blender or food processor and puree until very smooth. Then, as I mentioned, either eat it then as soft serve or freeze it for a little bit to get a more ice cream feel.

    • You could definitely use the unsweetened canned kind, as long as you freeze it into pieces.

  1. Is the pumpkin cooked or do you just use fresh, raw pumpkin? We grew lots of sugar pie pumpkins this year and this looks great – but not sure if the pumpkin should be cooked first. Thanks!

    • It should be cooked pumpkin, I don’t think that raw would have the same taste or texture. I wish I had a sugar pie pumpkin patch! I love pumpkins so much. 😀

  2. This is such an awesome idea! I am going to make this with the hoardes of canned pumpkin bought when it first reappeared on shelves for the season! I am also going to make an unsweetened version with some carob chips for my little vegan dog!

    • That sounds so cool! I really should make my dog some treats, I never thought about doing that with pumpkin though! 🙂

  6. I gave up processed sugar for Lent, so I was super excited to find this recipe! I just finished licking my bowl clean, and I love that it was so simple to throw together. I only used a bit of maple syrup and threw in a few chunks of frozen, overripe banana. Delish!

    • Adding frozen banana is a terrific idea for this! I’m glad you liked it, and I’ve definitely been wanting to cut down on my processed sugar intake. Thanks for the suggestion! 🙂
