MoFo Day26 Post ? The 5th Annual Liebster Awards Show

I was so psyched to make pumpkin ice cream for you in my new "vegan" ice cream maker, but as you can see from the above footage, I was temporarily detained.
I am quite mortified by my current relationship to this new appliance. We have been fighting on and off since he moved in. One day I take him out and he's too icy. I turn up the thermostat, and he won't churn properly. Too cold, too hot, where is just right? He's like the three bears of standard appliances. Maybe I need to look at this relationship in a whole new light. After all I do need a blender.
This was supposed to be an award winning pumpkin ice cream. Behold the delicious ice cream maker pumpkin-banana smoothie. And let me tell you the late night addition of banana rocked this smoothee. Who knew?

Even one of my cats liked it.
14 ounce can coconut milk cold, (I used lite) and added a cornstarch concoction and it was delicious but not needed, feel free to use a whole can of coconut milk
1/2 C rice milk cold

1 C canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie) 
1/2 C maple syrup
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp non-alcoholic vanilla
1 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp ginger
1 ripe banana (chunked and fozen)

Blend and enjoy. It's the cat's meow...
