    I blame pinterest and instagram for the canned pumpkin shortage! Every time I head to the grocery store for pumpkin, the shelves are empty. There are just too many tasty looking pumpkin treats on social media, I think we’re all trying to maximize those fall flavors and enjoy every bit of it.

    But, I kept going back to the store, because I was dreaming about these “ice cream sandwiches”. I was imagining a combination of some of my favorite treats:

    All I did was put in a blender:

    • Pumpkin
    • Protein powder
    • Almond Milk
    • Sugar free pudding mix
    • and xantham gum.

    Then, once blended, I split the pudding into 4 servings, one scoop on each graham cracker.

    Then, came my favorite part. I added a scoop of light cool whip, and covered it with a graham cracker to make the sandwich. (see my break down of the Cool Whip nutrition here)

    I really could just eat it right then and there, and I did eat some that way. But, putting it in the freezer for just 20-30 minutes made the inside firm enough that it didn’t squeeze out at the first bite.

    You can also leave the pumpkin pudding as a dip for a graham cracker, and I did that as well!

    So, give it a try and let me know what you think!
