5 Ingredient Chocolate Pumpkin Ice Cream #HeroesEatMMs #Shop | Optimistic Mommy

I don’t know about you, but I am super excited for fall to start tomorrow!  To me, that means cooler weather, being closer to holiday season, and pumpkin flavored everything!  In celebration of the release of Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier and M&M’s, I decided to create a yummy Chocolate Pumpkin Ice Cream.  And guess what?  It only has 5 ingredients!

First I had to stop by Walmart to pick up the chocolate part of this yummy treat – the M&M’s!  I love how there are so many varities of M&M’s to pick from.  I just went with the regular milk chocolate ones this time, but you can switch it up and pick whichever kind of M&M’s you would like!Chocolate Pumpkin Ice Cream (Only 5 Ingredients!) #HeroesEatMMs #Shop | Optimistic Mommy

Here are all of the ingredients you will need to make this Chocolate Pumpkin Ice Cream:

  • ~1 Cup M&M’s
  • 4 Bananas
  • 1/3 Cup Maple Syrup
  • 1 1/2 Cups Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/3 Teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice

You’ll first start out by throwing all of the ingredients in a mixer.  I chose to use my stand mixer, because it’s super easy.  Plus Riley loves helping out and watching everything mix up.

Mix everything together, on a low speed, until everything is combined well.  Make sure the bananas are smooth.

I added a small handful of extra M&M’s to the top of mine.  You can never have too much chocolate, right?!  🙂  Enjoy this while watching Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier!  That is what my husband and I did last night.  We are huge superhero lovers, and we enjoyed this movie very much!  You can also save some money by using this coupon at Walmart to save $5 when you purchase two M&M’s Brand Chocolate Candies and the Captain America: The Winter Soldier DVD!  You can also go to HeroesEatMMs to get this coupon and take some fun quizzes to see what super hero or M&M you are.  Make sure to share your results on social media with the hashtag #HeroesEatMMs!  Have fun!
