This time of year I love everything pumpkin – pumpkin pie, pumpkin cake, pumpkin bread, well I could go on and on.  I have been really trying not to eat those kinds of things.  With the help of Yonanas, a small kitchen gadget that turns frozen fruits into an “ice cream” texture I can have something that is better for me, Pumpkin Pie Yonanas.  The Yonanas  easily creates yummy tasting treats by adding any combination of frozen fruits like over-ripe bananas, berries, or mango to the chute for a smooth “ice-cream” like taste.  Here is a recipe for you to try that is healthy and taste great!

Pumpkin Pie Yonanas


·         2 frozen over-ripe bananas

·         3 frozen spiced pumpkin cubes (see step 1 below)

·         1/3 cup ginger snap cookies (crumbled)


1.       Make the Spiced Pumpkin Cubes in advance: In a bowl, combine one 15 oz. can pumpkin puree with 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp ground cinnamon and ½ tsp ground nutmeg. Spoon spiced pumpkin puree into ice cube trays and freeze. One spiced pumpkin cube is approximately 1 oz. Makes approximately 15 cubes.

2.       Slightly thaw your frozen fruit prior to putting through your yonanas maker.

3.       Insert one frozen banana

4.       Add 3 oz. frozen spiced pumpkin cubes

5.       Insert second frozen banana

6.       Sprinkle crumbled ginger snap cookies on top, and enjoy!
