How to make Pumpkin Ice Cream
This ice cream is “no churn” which means you don’t need an ice cream maker to enjoy this delicious homemade ice cream. There is no cooking, and no special equipment needed, which means that ANYONE can make this!
We also show you how to make a healthy version (below) using bananas, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and pumpkin spice. SO easy and good for you!!
- Enjoy the ice cream within 1 to 2 weeks for the best results.
- Make sure you use sweetened condensed milk and NOT evaporated milk
- Use 100% pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling.
- You can replace all the spice (except the cinnamon) using pumpkin pie spice.
- You can crush graham crackers or even ginger snap cookies and stir in the mixture before freezing.
- Mix in a dash of bourbon for some extra flavor.
- We love to top this with candied pecans…so good!
