This homemade pumpkin ice cream is so easy to whip up, its packed full of ingredients you most likely have on hand already, and only calls for a few ingredients even if you do have to run to the store. You only need 2 ingredients to make a homemade no churn ice cream, heavy whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk. For this pumpkin pie ice cream you’ll need the extra ingredients to get the pumpkin pie flavor throughout. You’ll need canned pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg (or pumpkin pie spice!) and of course don’t forget the pecan graham cracker crust pieces throughout!
This ice cream is “no churn” which means you don’t even need an ice cream maker to make it. There is no cooking, and no special equipment needed, which means that anyone and everyone can and should make this delicious pumpkin ice cream.
It whips up in just a few minutes, the only hard part is you have to wait a few hours while the ice cream hardens up in your freezer. Its hard to be patient for something that tastes this good.
Because the ice cream is made with heavy whipping cream it tastes just like a slice of pumpkin pie with whipped cream on top, just how pumpkin pie should be 😉 Its perfectly spiced with a homemade pumpkin pie spice assortment of spices and you’ll love biting into the pie crust crumble throughout too!
