Here is an idea for a healthy, fall inspired dessert: baked pumpkin, served with warm berries and homemade banana ice cream on top. It’s super easy to make and… wait for it… it doesn’t have any sugar added! It sounds like magic, right? Wait until you try it!
Let’s talk about the recipe a little.
The size of the pumpkin does not really matter. You may prepare a small individual bowl from a small-sized pumpkin, or go for a big, party-sized bowl. Just cut the bottom part of the pumpkin off, to create a bowl, and scoop out the pulp with seeds.
I used a mix of strawberry, black currant and cherry but feel free to use raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. I am sure they all will work great. Also, depending on the size of your pumpkin bowl, you may not need as many frozen berries as I mentioned in the recipe. Just fill up the bowl until it looks full.
THE ICE CREAM:
The ice cream is very easy to make. I found the post from The Kitchn to be really helpful. Feel free to check out their step-by-step instructions: How To Make Creamy Ice Cream with Just One Ingredient!
Start making this ice cream while you are baking the berries and it will be ready just in time!
This is a delicious dessert that everyone will love. Sweet pumpkin puree pairs great with warm berry compote and creamy banana ice cream. Give it a try!
