Why Pumpkin Spice?

There’s nothing that heralds the arrival of fall quite like the warm, inviting aroma of pumpkin spice flavors wafting through the air. This time of year, we all seem to gravitate toward those comforting blends of cinnamon, nutmeg, and all the flavors of fall, which remind us of cozy sweaters, crackling fires, and the joy of leaf-strewn walks. Incorporating these beloved flavors into a creamy pumpkin ice cream is, beyond doubt, the perfect treat to fully embrace the spirit of autumn. It’s the simple ingredients like real pumpkin puree, a dash of vanilla extract, and of course, the quintessential pumpkin pie spice, that create a dessert with the essence of fall in each scoop. 

Ingredients for No-Churn Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream

What You Need to Make Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream

  • Real pumpkin puree: Not just for pumpkin pies, real pumpkin puree adds authentic pumpkin flavor and creamy texture to your ice cream. 
  • Sweetened condensed milk: This reduces the need for additional sugar and helps create a smooth ice cream base. 
  • Heavy whipping cream: Whipped to stiff peaks, it’s the secret to achieving that perfect creamy ice cream texture. 
  • Pumpkin pie spice: The quintessential blend that evokes the essence of fall in each scoop. 
  • Vanilla extract: A little bit goes a long way in enriching the overall flavor of your pumpkin spice ice cream. 
  • Maple syrup: For a touch of natural sweetness that complements the pumpkin flavor beautifully. 
  • A pinch of salt: Just enough to enhance all the flavors. 
  • Loaf pan or airtight container: For storing your ice cream in the freezer, ensuring it stays fresh and creamy. 
  • Rubber spatula: Ideal for folding ingredients together and transferring your ice cream to a storage container without leaving any behind. 

How to Make the Ultimate Homemade Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream

When the leaves start to change color, and the air gets a little crisp, it’s the perfect time to create a batch of homemade pumpkin spice ice cream. Here’s how I do it:

  1. Gather the essentials: In a medium bowl combine real pumpkin puree, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, maple syrup, and pumpkin pie spice. If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, you can use classic spices like cinnamon and nutmeg to capture those cozy fall vibes. Adding in a pinch of salt really makes the pumpkin flavor pop.
  1. Whip it up: In a separate large bowl, add the heavy whipping cream. Beat with an electric mixer until you’ve got those beautiful stiff peaks, the secret to a creamy ice cream base.
  2. Combine with care: Gently fold the pumpkin mixture into the whipped cream, infusing every scoop with homemade pumpkin pie spice for that unmistakable fall scent.
  3. Prep for freezing: Pour everything into a loaf pan or an airtight container. If using a loaf pan, cover tightly with plastic wrap to fend off ice crystals.
  4. Freeze to perfection: Let your creation freeze until it’s wonderfully soft yet scoopable, a minimum of 6 hours or overnight. The wait is well worth it, I promise.

Keeping it Fresh: Storage Tips

After you’ve poured your love and labor into creating the perfect batch of homemade pumpkin spice ice cream, the last thing you want is for it to lose its creamy texture and rich pumpkin flavor. The secret to preserving its delightful essence and achieving that first-scoop freshness every time lies in the way you store it. 

  • Store your ice cream in an airtight container, ensuring no air can sneak in and cause those dreaded ice crystals to form. 
  • Add a double layer of protection by snugly wrapping the container in plastic wrap before securing the lid. 
  • For long-term storage, keep it stashed in the coldest part of your freezer. Every time you treat yourself to a scoop, make sure to return it to the freezer promptly. This way, you ensure that your homemade pumpkin spice ice cream stays as fresh and inviting as the fall season it celebrates. 
  • Your homemade pumpkin ice cream can last 1-2 months in the freezer.
