Vegan Maple Pumpkin Crunch Nice Cream {gf}

Updated: Mar 15, 2021

Trying to enjoy all things pumpkin spice, but don't want all the sugar? his Maple Pumpkin Crunch Nice Cream recipe is what dreams are made of. This "nice cream" uses frozen bananas and coconut cream to reach that creamy ice cream consistency. You may be thinking that now your ice cream will taste like bananas and coconuts, but I promise~it won't. This recipe features maple syrup for that maple flavor, pumpkin pie spice for the pumpkin, and pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, and my homemade Pumpkin Granola for that amazing crunch factor. This nice cream can me eaten right out of the blender, frozen for dessert, eaten for for dinner or breakfast, I mean, truly anything!
