  3. Add your coconut butter, almond butter, and plant milk.

Notes

Store in the freezer in an air tight container for up to 3 months. Best enjoyed slightly thawed. 

If you choose to make this recipe with the home cooked butternut pumpkin instead of the puree, just cut the pumpkin in half and roast it in the oven for 45 minutes on 395°F open side facing down. I just coated the open sides with some coconut oil and a pinch of salt, but it's completely optional.
