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!)  😉

How To Make Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream- Lightened?

Homemade ice cream is easy, cost-effective, and healthier to eat.

This recipe only contains natural ingredients.  No preservatives and no added artificial ingredients, what-so-ever! 

If you have pumpkins outside your door, now is the time to bring in the smaller ones to make pumpkin puree. 

Or you can pick up a few extra small ones for this recipe.

 

Ok, let’s get started!

 

Ingredients Needed for Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream… 

  • 1 + 1/2 cups of heavy cream

  • 1 cup fat-free milk

  • 1/2 cup of sugar

  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon

  • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

  • 1/8 tsp. salt

  • 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree

 

Directions to Make Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream…

1.  In a medium pot, over moderate heat, cook the whipping cream, milk, sugar, spices, and salt. Stir and cook until the sugar has dissolved and bubbles form around the edge of the pot.

2.  Remove from heat.  Stir in the vanilla and pumpkin puree.

3.  Pour into a bowl and refrigerate until the mixture is cold.  About 3 hours, or overnight.

4.  Pour into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

… It takes about 25 to 30 minutes in the ice cream maker. Now, it’s ready! 

Yields: 1 + 1/2 Quarts

 

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!!

    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!

      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.
