This Vegan Pumpkin Pie Whip Recipe and Oster Pro 1200 review were sponsored by Oster. A product sample was received.
We all love a simple 4-ingredient recipe, right? Especially when it includes 2 of the most guilt-inducing ingredients out there: bananas and canned pumpkin. No, they don’t make us feel guilty because they’re unhealthy or too indulgent – they make us feel guilty because they always seem to be staring us in the face, saying, “Don’t throw me out! You know you can find a way to use me!” Waste not, want not, right?
Vegan Pumpkin Pie Whip
I absolutely loathe throwing out a lovely spotted past-its-prime banana. That’s why banana “soft serve” and egg-free chocolate chip cookies have become dessert staples in our house. But this time of year, the abundance of pumpkin left over from other recipes means only one thing: Vegan Pumpkin Pie Whip. It’s an ice-creamy, soft-serve-ish frozen dessert that’s a dream when you add a little pumpkin pie spice and maple syrup. (And if you want to top it off with some whipped cream and make it a little un-vegan, I won’t tell anyone. This dessert applies to everyone.)
Today’s batch of Pumpkin Pie Whip comes to you courtesy of the Oster Pro 1200 Plus Food Processor. What better way to test out the processing power of a new appliance than with something you’ve made before, right? I know this recipe is a bit of a challenge since the ingredients are frozen, but this particular food processor handled it like a Pro. (See what I did there?)
Read on for recipe and more about the Oster Pro 1200…
- 2 large bananas, cut into chunks and frozen
- 1 cup canned pumpkin, frozen
- ¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
- Place all ingredients into a high-powered food processor. Pulse until frozen ingredients begin to blend, then gradually increase speed until smooth. (Do not over process or ingredients will get warm and melt.)
- Serve immediately, or refreeze briefly to firm up a little. Enjoy!
The Oster Pro 1200 Plus Food Processor
With the Oster Pro 1200, you really can combine appliances and do a ton of kitchen work with just one handy tool. Food prep, slicing for recipes, smoothies – this one does it all, and it fits nicely in a small space. (It’s 7″ x 7″ x 14″ ) It even has 7 speeds and 3 pre-programmed smart settings (Smart Settings™ Technology) to blend the perfect milkshakes, salsas, and drinks, along with versatile attachments that make slicing, dicing and other food prep a snap.
For this recipe, I started with a medium pulse, then switched between salsa and milkshake modes to finish blending my frozen ingredients. It was the perfect combination of speeds – and changes in speeds – to shake things up and get those frozen chunks moving, instead of just getting stuck. I seriously felt like I could hear it thinking and problem-solving as it changed speeds and directions.
Must be the 1200 power watts and 900 watts of ice crushing power…and Dual Direction Blade Technology. Neat, right? Just think of all the recipes… *dreamy* And you won’t end up with salsa that looks like a smoothie, because it just knows.
When you purchase the Oster Pro 1200, you get an extra large 8-cup BPA-free TRITAN™ Jar that’s dishwasher safe and impact and temperature resistant, along with an extra large capacity 5-cup food processing bowl, stainless steel slicing disk and precision chopping blade.
It’s sharp, y’all.
