Ingredients for pumpkin ice cream set out on counter top.
  • Pumpkin Purée - Canned or homemade.
  • Heavy Whipping Cream - Keeps this pumpkin ice cream light and fluffy.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk - Sweetens the mixture while also ensuring it remains smooth and scoopable.
  • Powdered Sugar - The powdered sugar gives the ice cream some extra sweetness and helps stabilize the whipped cream. This creates a smoother, creamier ice cream.
  • Cinnamon - Just a dash will add a sense of warmth to this chilly treat.

Recipe FAQs

What does pumpkin ice cream taste like?

This no churn pumpkin ice cream tastes just like you blended a slice of rich pumpkin pie into a luscious, smooth, and creamy ice cream base. The warm notes of cinnamon really bring out the natural sweetness of the pumpkin purée and creamy thickness of the sweetened condensed milk.

Is pumpkin ice cream seasonal?

Unfortunately, store bought pumpkin ice cream is seasonal. Most companies only sell the flavor in the fall and early winter. However, because you can almost always get canned pumpkin purée at the grocery store, you can make my no churn pumpkin ice cream year-round! Enjoy a scoop of this rich and creamy treat on even the hottest days of the year.

How to Store

Any leftover no churn pumpkin ice cream can be stored in an airtight container in the freezer for one month.

Depending on how cold your freezer is, you may need to let the ice cream sit out on the counter for a few minutes before serving and enjoying.

Ways To Serve Pumpkin Ice Cream

Although you can absolutely enjoy this no churn ice cream on its own, you can also dress it up with some fun garnishes!

Try topping your scoop of pumpkin ice cream with fresh whipped cream, crushed graham crackers, or an extra sprinkling of cinnamon.

Tips & Variations For Pumpkin Ice Cream

  • Add some crunchy texture to this no churn ice cream by adding some graham crackers to the ice cream base!
  • Want to add some extra warmth and spice to this pumpkin ice cream? Swap out the cinnamon for your favorite pumpkin pie spice blend.
  • Be careful when folding in your pumpkin purée. You don’t want to knock out too much of the air from the whipped cream; this will result in an ice cream that crumbles when you scoop it.
  • If you don’t have a loaf pan, don’t worry! You can freeze this ice cream in any freezer-safe container. It may just take a bit longer for your ice cream to completely set.
