Easy Pumpkin Ice Cream

I  plan  to post today and also  posted  for Pumpkin Week on Monday  for Pumpkin and Beet Salad. And again on Wednesday for Pumpkin Chocolate  Chip Muffins.

But today is pumpkin ice cream, the easiest way. I find the flavor to be perfect without  the hassle of cooking a frozen custard mix.

The flavor  is not overly pumpkin and spice heavy. Too  much  of that and I don’t like it. I want it to still be very light and creamy.

Serving Ideas

And this is perfect for serving with pumpkin pie ala mode.  Or don’t be shy- bury it  in hot fudge, hot caramel with whipped cream and pecans. And can you imagine the  banana split you  can make with this? Wowsers. But maybe if you just like it  simple, tuck a freshly baked oatmeal cookie in  on  the side of  your scoop. Yum.

But  more than anything else, since this dessert uses ready made ice cream,  there is a plus  side. Pick the one  that  fits your diet needs, be it sugar-free, fat-free, vegan,   etc. If you go  sugar-free, maybe  use Swerve brown sugar blend instead of actual brown sugar.  That one is very low carb.

Choose your own adventure with it!
