Hump Day Snack: Kabocha Squash Ice Cream with Maple Pecans

By: Jamie Lisanti

Tired of hearing about pumpkin-flavored everything? Then go for a slightly less popular gourd that is just as tasty and versatile. Instead of serving it savory, transform creamy kabocha squash into Kabocha Ice Cream with Maple Toasted Pecans. The golden ice cream has a velveteen texture and flavor of ginger-infused coconut milk, nutmeg, cinnamon and maple syrup. Swirl in simple homemade cranberry sauce and three-ingredient maple-toasted pecans to add tartness and crunch. Then scoop it into waffle cones for an all-star autumn dessert — no pumpkin or pie-making necessary!
