Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream is an easy homemade ice cream recipe that tastes just like a slice of your favorite pumpkin pie!  Serve it on top of your holiday pies, or just on its own, it’s surprisingly delicious!

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream that tastes exactly like pumpkin pie!

I went back and forth whether to offer up a unique take on pumpkin ice cream, or to go with the classic flavor, and the classic won out.  I will tell you that as a long time pumpkin ice cream lover, this one is really good.  Its defining characteristic  is that it tastes exactly like pumpkin pie.  As an experiment I used the recipe on the can as my guide, I simply left out the eggs.  The first time I made it it it was good, but there was just a little something missing.  It turned out that a bit of sweetened condensed milk did the trick.  The ice cream is especially creamy, and the spice blend is spot on.  As a side benefit it’s lower in fat than regular ice cream because it contains no heavy cream at all.

Pumpkin Ice Cream

The recipe uses the entire can of pumpkin, so you know this is going to have a more robust pumpkin flavor than you get from store bought brands.  It’s quite lovely, and if you’re a pumpkin pie lover, you’re going to flip.

Which ice cream machine do I recommend?

I get asked all the time about what machine I use. I use and recommend Cuisinart. I’ve had my machine for years without any issues, I think because there are no fussy electronic parts to break down ~ it’s a simple motor that turns the freezer bowl for churning the ice cream and it works quickly and perfectly every time.

  • The machine I use, and it’s the base model. It works great for ice cream, frozen yogurt, and sorbets, and makes all of them in about 2o minutes. Click HERE or click on the image for more info.

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

Ingredients

  • 1 15 oz can of pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
  • 1 12 oz can of evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg

Instructions

  1. Whisk together all the ingredients, making sure the sugar is dissolved.
  2. This step is optional, but I strained the mixture through a mesh sieve. Put the mix in the refrigerator until chilled.
  3. Process in your ice cream machine according to its directions.
  4. Spoon the soft ice cream into a container and freeze until firm. This will take several hours.

Make it your own ~

    I don’t have an ice cream maker. Can I freeze this in the freezer and scrape it down a few times?

    Hi, I don’t have an ice cream maker so I was wondering if this would work if I mix it in a blender and then chilled? Thanks…

    Must try! There’s a local convenience store chain that has their own ice cream. I love the pumpkin pie! It also has bits of pie crust in it. There’s also “whipped cream ” swirled in. It will be out soon, but I will definitely have to make this. And this looks easy, and no egg!

      I thought about adding ‘crust’ to this one, but decided in favor of the silky texture of the pie filling as my inspiration…let us know how you like it Maria!

    This sounds delicious and your presentation is adorable! I often have the same struggle about whether to change a recipe up or leave it in a more simple, classic form and I think you made the right call here. This is perfect on its own!

    I have got to try this! I’ve searched every ice cream shop for a good pumpkin flavor, only to be constantly disappointed. Maybe it is time to make my own!
