4 medium-large bananas
1 cup pureed pumpkin
2-3 Tbsp pure maple syrup (I tested this at between 2-4 Tbsp, and I found that 2-3 Tbsp was plenty sweet for our taste buds.)
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1. Slice bananas and spread evenly on a large baking sheet. Freeze for at least a couple of hours.
2. Combine frozen banana slices, pumpkin, maple syrup, and pumpkin pie spice in a food processor. Process until smooth. You may need to scrape down the sides and mix it up a few times to help it along. Now you have two choices from here. You can either enjoy this immediately. It'll be a little more creamy and less frozen OR you can put the mix into a freezer safe container and freezer for a few more hours before enjoying. This will give it a little more solid consistency like the real thing. It's still yummy either way.
