Pumpkin Spice No-Churn Ice Cream

If you have never made ice cream before because you think it is too difficult; or because you think you can only make it with an expensive ice cream machine – think again! This no-churn ice cream is really simple to make – no specialised equipment required (unless you count a food mixer, but even if you don’t have one of those you can still make this frozen dessert!).

Ingredients used in this recipe

To make pumpkin spice no-churn ice cream you are going to need the following ingredients.

Equipment used in this recipe

This recipe uses American cup measurements. Since I use this type of measurement often, I find it handy to have a set of measuring cups in the kitchen.

You will also need a food mixer – be it a stand mixer or handheld. If you don’t have one, you can just use a large balloon whisk and some elbow grease to whip up the heavy cream.

The prepared ice cream goes into a freezer-proof dish – a 9″ loaf pan is ideal.

How to make Pumpkin No-Churn Ice Cream

Full instructions are found in the printable recipe card at the end of this post, but here is a quick outline so you know what to expect from the recipe. I highly recommend always reading a recipe all the way through before starting. There is also a slideshow video over on my YouTube channel that you can watch and save to your Playlists for future reference. (Don’t forget to subscribe while you are there!)

You want to start by whipping up cold cream until it is thick – don’t go too far or it will turn to butter!

Now add the pumpkin, condensed milk, vanilla, and spices and fold everything together gently until combined.

With the ice cream mixture made, transfer half of it to your freezer-safe container and sprinkle over some of the chopped pecans. Then add the rest of the mix and finish with the remaining pecans.

Place into the freezer for 5-6 hours, or overnight.

When ready to serve, remove your ice cream from the freezer and let sit for 5-10 minutes to soften slightly before scooping into bowls, cups, cones, or onto pies and other desserts like chocolate brownies! Enjoy!
