Two of my favorite things are ice cream and pumpkin! This fall I decided that I needed to find a way to combine these two things to make my own homemade pumpkin ice cream. All summer long I worked to perfect the perfect vanilla ice cream recipe so I figured it was now time to try making pumpkin ice cream! Since it’s still warm outside, I decided that instead of pumpkin pie, I’d still to ice cream recipes for dessert!
When I was in college I remember going with my friends every fall to get the seasonal Pumpkin Milkshakes at Burgerville. I can still taste and smell those delicious milk shakes! When I decided to make my own pumpkin ice cream from scratch, I knew that I wanted the ice cream to bring back these memories!
I love using my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker to make ice cream. There’s something about homemade ice cream that just tastes so much better than store bought ice cream. Growing up I remember making peach ice cream with my parents so I love being able to share this tradition with my daughter!
