Fall is here, but the temperatures just won’t make up their mind here in Kansas City. We have 90 degree days followed by 60 degree days. That won’t keep me from pumpkin spice!
I also feel like I am in the mood for ice cream during any season of the year!
How Do You Make Ice Cream Using the Instant Pot Ace Cooking Blender?

How Long Does the Blender Take to Make Ice Cream?
The default Instant Pot Cooking Blender “Ice Cream” setting is 1 minute and 20 seconds. I allowed the ice cream to go for about 2 minutes. When I used the ice cream preset, I still had ice cubes that hadn’t been blended.
Using the tamper with the lid on, also wasn’t enough for me to get the ice cream fully blended. After the 1 minute and 20 seconds, I removed the lid from the blender and did a few good stirs of the mixture. I need to get to the bottom of the blender and stir. I wasn’t able to do this while the blender was in process.
I returned the lid and blended for another 40-50 seconds.

If you prefer to used refined sugar instead of zero calorie sweetener, the conversion is 1:1. You can use 1/4 cup.
If you like sweet ice cream add more sugar. 1/4 cup will result in increased flavor related to the pumpkin and spices, it isn't overly sweet.
You may have to remove the lid from the blender and stir to get the ice to blend. Using the tamper while the blender was in process was not enough for me.
This is soft serve ice cream. The ice cream will not be hard. For hard ice cream, freeze it first.
The banana gives the ice cream shape. It will not have a banana taste or flavor.
