Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

Pin It My latest addiction...Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream.  I don't know why I got a huge craving for pumpkin in the middle of summer, but really I'm not complaining.  :)  I love pumpkin and I love fall so why not enjoy the flavors of pumpkin pie all year round?  Plus pumpkin is super good for you and makes a great base for a delicious creamy ice cream.  I used an ice cream maker to make this, but just incase you don't have one (which is really a shame..) I'll give you a few other ways to make it in the directions because I don't want you to miss out.  Enjoy!


3/4 cup Milk
1/4 cup Pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling!)
1 packet Stevia
Dash cinnamon
Splash vanilla extract
Pinch allspice, cloves, and nutmeg (optional but really improves the flavor)
1/4 tsp Guar gum (also optional but it helps make it really thick)
1/3 scoop Vanilla protein powder (again this is option)

Option 1:
1. Whisk all the ingredients together in a cup with a fork.
2. Pour into an ice cream maker and just wait till it's done!
3. Serve immediately or place in freezer for awhile to get a harder texture.

Option 2:
1. Whisk all the ingredients together in a cup with a fork.
2. Place into a shallow tupperware container to give the ice cream the most surface layer possible.
3. Place in freezer and stir every 1/2 hour or so until desired consistency is reached.

Option 3:
1. Whisk all the ingredients together in a cup with a fork.
2. Pour ice cream into a clean ice cube tray and place in freezer.
3. Once the cubes are frozen place in a high speed blender (you may need to add a little milk) and blend.

  1. What if all I have is the pumpkin pie filling? Can it work somehow???? I really wanted to make this with my son.

    1. I've never actually cooked with pumpkin pie filling so I don't know. If it has the same consistency of regular canned pumpkin, I don't see why it wouldn't work.
