Are you a pumpkin spiced everything lover like me?  I imagine if you’re reading this recipe, then you most likely are – and boy, do I have an incredible recipe to share with you!  Introducing Vegan Pumpkin Ice Cream…

Sure, the weather may be cooling down, but that never stops me from enjoying ice cream.  I’m betting you feel the same way, (that’s why I like you.)  Especially  if the ice cream is thick and creamy and delightfully flavored, much like the pumpkin ice cream you see here.

Why this Recipe Works:

  • This recipe is that it’s insanely simple, AND, you can rest easy knowing your pumpkin ice cream is made with pure, all natural ingredients.
  • The use of maple syrup adds a little bit of extra nutrients to this treat.
  • The addition of pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice give this ice cream the perfect fall twist.

Is pumpkin ice cream gluten free?

  • It sure is! In fact, this ice cream, and all of my ice creams, are gluten free!

Instructions for Making Vegan Pumpkin Ice Cream:

1. At least six hours prior: place your cashews in a bowl and cover them with two cups of water.  Note – They need to soak at least six hours but no longer than 24 hours. Once that’s done, drain and rinse your cashews.

2. Place all ingredients, including the soaked cashews, in a high speed blender. Blend on high until the mixture is completely smooth.

3. Pour that mixture into your ice cream maker (I like THIS brand) and churn until the ice cream is very thick. This typically takes about 20-25 minutes, but some ice cream makers may take longer.

4. At this point, what you have is similar to soft serve, so for firmer, more traditional ice cream, place it in the freezer in an airtight container and allow it to freeze for at least four hours.

That’s it!

My favorite toppings for this ice cream are granola and mini chocolate chips.

But really, it’s just so darn good all on it’s own.
