No-Churn Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

No-Churn Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

I can’t think of a better way to put a spin on a traditional Thanksgiving recipe than by making some homemade, no-churn, pumpkin pie ice cream. It’s a quick and easy frozen dessert that’ll be sure to satisfy your pumpkin spice cravings.

I’m totally that girl who puts pumpkin pie spice in her coffee and I’m not even ashamed! When fall weather rolls around and pumpkin spice everything starts trending, you won’t see me complaining. I will GLADLY detain all the pumpkin goodies from the non-pumpkin spice believers. That’s right! I see some of you hating the best things about the fall season! Pumpkin is the bomb! #sorrynotsorry

When I first told my close friends and family that I was creating a pumpkin pie ice cream recipe, they looked at me like I had lost my marbles. Reluctantly, they obliged and came over for a taste test. Each person immediately said it tasted just like pumpkin pie and asked for a bowl full….or two. Its safe to say that I’ve turned my dearest friends into pumpkin lovers too.

I don’t know about you but it totally sucks when you purchase a tub of ice cream and no matter how much you heat up that spoon, the ice cream is such a pain to get out of the container! This recipe has a smooth, creamy texture which is perfect for scooping. Plus It’s melt in your mouth perfection, if I do say so myself.

Before starting on this recipe, make sure your heavy whipping cream is very cold. I have noticed that if the heavy whipping cream isn’t chilled enough, it won’t get the consistency you’re wanting for ice cream. For added reassurance you can chill the bowl you will be using for the ice cream base.

I highly recommend letting the ice cream freeze overnight as well, so it has plenty of time to set up properly. When you’re ready to eat, remove from freezer and serve immediately.
