Pure Genius Giveaway and Vegan Pumpkin Ice Cream Recipe

Disclosure: This giveaway is sponsored by Pure Genius Provisions. I received products in exchange for the giveaway. Opinions stated are my own. 
Guess what? It is late October! It means the holiday season is almost here. Believe it or not, I am going to get you ready for it with some delicious treats! Why? Because if you find healthy ways to indulge, you won’t feel deprived. When you aren’t deprived, you’ll be less likely to over-indulge once less healthy treats are at your fingertips.

How can you feel like you’re indulging without actually indulging? With vegan pumpkin ice cream and deliciously fudgey bean brownies of course! I’ve got the super easy recipe for the ice cream along with a chance to win a 4-pack of the best bean brownies and blondies!

Pure Genius contacted me and sent some of their snacks to try over the summer and I fell in love. Brownies are one of my all-time favorite desserts! I’ve made bean versions on my own, but somehow those geniuses in the Pure Genius factory make theirs taste like fudge! They also have less sugar (from pure maple) than I’ve used as well as flax. With fiber, protein and omega-3, these are a healthy indulgence if there ever was one! Plus, if you have a special diet you need to follow, they are vegan, gluten-free and nut free.

After chatting with the great marketing team and seeing them at Expo East this year, we decided to do a giveaway. Entry details are below and, just in case you don’t win, there’s a discount code for everyone, too! I should mention, that the company won a Nexty Award at Expo for best new dessert – that says a lot since many “natural” desserts aren’t necessarily healthy with protein, fiber, and minimal sugar. Well deserved!
Being that it’s fall, with this batch that I received, I decided to make my usual banana ice cream with pumpkin spice. With a good blender, you’ll have a no-sugar added ice cream to pair with your bean brownie in no time. Just thinking of the yumminess can make Halloween candy cravings go away!

If you have both together, I do recommend sharing with a friend or significant other 🙂

  1. My favorite is brownies and I love to pair them with decaf coffee but your pumpkin ice cream sounds fab! Will have to try it soon!

  2. My favorite is brownies (I also love blondies) and I like to pair them either with peanut butter and a glass of almond milk or warm topped with ice cream!

  3. Brownies all the way!! If I’m feeling really decadent, it’s vanilla ice cream on top but usually they are good enough on their own. Will have to try these!

  4. I must admit I love both but I do love chocolate chunks in blondies!
    Nice cream is a favorite to pair with the bars since I am lactose-intolerant, frozen bananas are the way to go!
