I'm a San Francisco city girl who loves to cook and enjoy the outdoors. My cooking style focuses on healthy recipes, but I have a huge sweet tooth that I am constantly fighting! When I'm not cooking/eating/photographing/writing about food, I'm at the hospital full-time or running. I'm addicted to blogging about food - www.mysanfranciscokitchen.com

Looking for a new low-fat, healthy dessert to try this Fall? You’re going to love this pumpkin “nice cream!” What do I mean by “nice cream?” If you haven’t heard about nice cream yet, you are in for a treat. It’s basically ice cream without the fat and calories. Whhhaaat?? Yes, it’s true! The secret is frozen bananas. Frozen bananas add an amazing ice cream-like texture without bringing an overpowering banana flavor to the dessert. Combine frozen bananas with anything, like pumpkin puree, to make your favorite ice cream into nice cream!

You can enjoy this treat right away, or pop it in the freezer for later (just thaw about 20 minutes before you want to eat it).
