I’ve been on an ice cream making kick lately. Today’s creation is the best one yet! It tastes like pumpkin pie with fresh whipped cream. Totally yummy! And seeing as there’s a bit of pumpkin in it I think it counts as a serving of fruits/veggies! Enjoy!
Pumpkin Maple Ice Cream
1 3/4 cups heavy cream (whipping cream or full cream, depending on where you live)
1 1/4 cups 1% milk
1/2 cup grade B maple syrup (or amber grade A maple syrup)
3/4 to 1 cup of canned pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 pinches of salt
Whisk ingredients together in a bowl or in a large measuring cup with a spout (for easier pouring). Chill in fridge until cold (at least a half hour). Whisk again briefly, just to combine, then place in ice cream machine. It took roughly 22 minutes in my Cuisinart ice cream maker. Makes 1 quart.
