This pumpkin ice cream is creamy and filled with all kinds of goodness. Made with pumpkin puree and all the spices will have you falling in love. Pair with a crunchy pie crust cookie and you have a delicious dessert!
This pumpkin ice cream tastes just like pumpkin pie. Except it’s cold and there is absolutely no pie crust. Although it would be delicious if it came with a pie dough bowl and topped with some whipped cream. Or another option would be to mound as much of the ice cream you can on top of a waffle cone! Even adding some chocolate sauce would make the flavor pop more. Oh my, that would be just heavenly! This is a perfect thing to try for a family night, or Thanksgiving.
Products I recommend for making this dessert.
Above are some products that I personally use and recommend for this recipe and to have for everyday use. I highly recommend starting off with the cuisinart ice cream machine as your first ice cream maker. It’s the cheapest one on amazon and I personally use it and love it! I also suggest getting a reusable ice cream container as well, it’s dishwasher safe and you can use it over and over again!
