How to Make Pumpkin Ice Cream

Here is a tasty pumpkin ice cream that is easy to make: it is simply sweetened pumpkin purée, milk, and whipping cream, frozen.

Because this recipe use a purée of just harvested pumpkin, you will need about 90 minutes to prepare the ice cream mix and another 2½ hours to freeze.

‘Sugar Pie’ is the pumpkin I chose for this recipe, but you can use any pie or sugar pumpkin—those are the smaller pumpkins, not the big jack-o-lantern pumpkins.

By the way, you can make this treat with any orange-fleshed winter squash–so if you want to serve butternut or acorn squash ice cream, here you go.
