Pumpkin Ice Cream for breakfast??  Say what?  My kids thought they had hit the goldmine or I had lost my mind or maybe both!  But the other day they woke to pumpkin ice cream for breakfast and were delighted!

So have I lost my mind?  Not so!  This ice cream is made with coconut milk which is loaded with goodness, and real pumpkin puree.  Pumpkin is incredibly rich in vitamin A and also provides nutrients such as vitamin C, potassium, riboflavin, copper, and manganese.  So let’s eat up, shall we?
