Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream - Lightened! by 2sistersrecipes.com

 
A lightened but still marvelously creamy, this Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream tastes like a pumpkin pie only without the crust, and it’s frozen!  I know it’s October, but I love to eat ice cream 12 months out of the year!  It’s smooth, creamy, and very light, and totally AMAZING!!

Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream – Lightened …

I  wanted to lighten the pumpkin spice ice cream recipe, so I decided to use fat-free milk and opted for less sugar, and less whipping cream. 

Plus, I used 1 cup of my fresh pumpkin puree which I posted the other day.  

The taste of this ice cream is as good as it looks, with a subtle flavor of pumpkin- that’s not overpowering.  (This is my kind of ice cream!)  πŸ˜‰

A few years ago, while everyone was out buying the iPhone, iPod, or the latest gadget in the tech world, I was looking for an ice cream maker. 

Oh yeah… you could say I am a kitchen geek and found one I liked.  I bought a Cuisinart Automatic Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker, and since then, we have been making all kinds of fabulous flavors!

If you don’t have one,  I highly recommend getting one. 

It’s fun for the whole family making homemade ice creams, yogurts and sorbets!

ENJOY!!

 Thanks for Pinning!!

  1. Yum. This is an ice cream that's perfect for the season. I've been making ice creams all year round ever since I got my ice cream maker too. πŸ™‚

  2. There's a store nearby that carries pumpkin ice cream this time of year and I always pick some up to have at our Thanksgiving meal. It's always such a treat. I never thought to make any since I do all the cooking and it's just one more thing. Your recipe sounds so good that it would make perfect sense to make it a week ahead and then just store it in the freezer until Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing this. I'm saving this to share with my family turkey day!

    1. Hi Vicki, this is the reason why we made this flavor ice cream, because we couldn't find this flavor any where. You're lucky that you have a store nearby that sells it.
