All the Flavors of Pumpkin Pie in a Vegan, Paleo Ice Cream

Pumpkin ice cream on Hollinsbrook

We have a classic pumpkin ice cream recipe but we don’t want to leave out our paleo and vegan friends. This paleo pumpkin ice cream is perfect for the fall and winter holidays – or really anytime you have a pumpkin pie craving. It uses one of our favorite convenience products, canned pumpkin, so you can make it year round. You need an ice cream maker with at least a 1 ½ quart capacity. We use a Cuisinart ICE-100 Ice Cream and Gelato Maker in the Test Kitchen. We love ice cream makers with built-in compressors; making ice cream becomes incredibly easy. Make sure to read serving suggestions; letting your ice cream sit is crucial. And please excuse our varied images. We were playing with some Cambria quartz surfaces in the Test Kitchen.

  2. Whisk before processing in ice cream maker following manufacturer’s instructions. The ice cream is ready to eat or may be frozen in an airtight container for about a week, at which point the texture becomes less creamy. And speaking of texture, if you have stored and frozen this paleo ice cream you must give it time to soften a bit before serving. 5 or 10 minutes make a huge difference between rock hard and creamy, smooth.

Bakepedia Tips

  • Want to gild the lily? Serve with a drizzle of Dark Caramel Sauce – it won’t be vegan anymore, but it will be amazing.
  • You can increase the spices if you want a more highly spiced ice cream. The ratios as they are now allow the pumpkin flavor to come through.
