Pumpkin Cinnamon Spiced Vegan Ice Cream

I am continually amazed that I am still in the running for Project Food Blog.  Thank you all SO much for the continued votes and support.  (You can vote for my latest entry here.)  If you liked the Pumpkin, Fig, Pomegranate Upside-Down Cake, you will love the accompanying vegan ice cream…

Pumpkin Cinnamon Spiced Vegan Ice Cream

IMG_4813 (640x427)


  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 can lite coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla

To Prepare:  I love making ice cream because it is so unbelievably simple.  The only thing you need is a little pre-planning, and the patience to let it freeze!  If you’ve already made the Pumpkin, Fig, & Pomegranate Upside-Down Cake (and you really should), then you should have an open can of pumpkin leftover.  This ice cream not only complements the cake perfectly, it makes good use of the rest of the can.

The instructions for this could not be more simple – dump all ingredients into a blender and give it a good whir…

If your dog ate your Vitamix, make sure you cover the gaping holes with a towel.

Once the mixture is well blended, pour it into an ice cream machine.  You’ll need to make sure you freeze the inner bowl for at least 24 hours prior to making this (hence the need for pre-planning).  Then push start and let your magical machine do all the work (this ice cream maker is only $45 – totally worth it).

In about 30 minutes, you should have delicious creamy pumpkin spiced ice cream!

Perfect on its own, or next to a gooey piece of cake.

Taste tested for approval…

Two thumbs up.

YUM !! :) I made a pumpkin ice cream for Thanksgiving this year… it was sorta untraditional but everyone was happy! :D


Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun     at 1:43 pm

I want a plate with that ice cream and the previous cake. Like, now. Do I really have to preplan? ;)

Just voted for you!


Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin     at 1:52 pm

I need to get an ice cream maker!!!!


Erin @ Bishella     at 1:52 pm

I wish I had an ice cream maker! But I am absolutely going to try and make the cake. DROOOOOOL!!!! :)



chelsey @ clean eating chelsey     at 1:59 pm

I NEED to invest in an ice cream maker.


Megan (Running Foodie)     at 2:02 pm

That ice cream maker was one of the best wedding presents we got (and we didn’t even register for it)! I am so looking forward to making this and the upside down cake for our holiday party in a few weeks!


Michelle @ Chasing Ambulances     at 2:03 pm

One woman standing starting the slow clap, right here!

I am going to make this… If not tonight – then asap! Brilliant.


Christin@purplebirdblog     at 2:11 pm

Voted! I am dying to get an ice cream maker!!!! :D


Brittney     at 2:12 pm

Whoa! I have an ice cream maker that I haven’t used in like a year! Time to get it out!!


Poppy@ From Fried Chicken to Tofu     at 2:15 pm

Another reason I need an ice cream maker like right now! Thanks for another great recipe! Keep um coming!


Lee     at 2:22 pm

Just voted for you!


grocery goddess jen     at 2:22 pm

I just voted for you!

I don’t have an ice cream maker, but it sure does look simple to make vegan ice cream if you have one.


Colleen     at 2:22 pm

the ice cream maker is going on my Christmas wish list now! yum.


Krystina     at 1:44 pm

I neeeeed an ice cream maker!

Check eBay! I got the one that Emily posted above for only $12 on there! Brand new! :)


holly Reply:

Oooh good idea!


Georgie @ Georgie Goes Healthy Reply:

wow such a great idea – I would love to have an ice cream maker!


Sheena @ theSheenBean     at 2:46 pm

I can’t wait to make your cake and ice cream. They sound fantastic!


Erin @ Shortcut to Bliss     at 3:02 pm

My 5 year old has been begging for an ice cream maker for Christmas…this seems like a good reason to give in =)


Madeleine @ Stepping to the Bright Side     at 3:12 pm

Oh.my.goodness. This is a must try for me, though purchasing an ice cream maker could be dangerous in my kitchen. It means a never ending supply THANK YOU!!


Namaste Gurl     at 3:23 pm

If only I had an ice- cream maker….
Maybe I’ll just use the gums to make it ice-cream like.


Lisa     at 3:54 pm

What a wonderful idea!!!!


Alyson     at 4:18 pm

Ahaha, I love your work-with-what-you-have attitude. Keep using the VitaMix as is until replacement lids can be obtained! The ice cream looks incredible. Dang it, I should make vegan ice cream more; my eldest daughter eats ice cream all the time, non-vegan because I don’t make vegan often enough. My big mistake was buying the biggest ice cream freezer (1 gal capacity) I could find. With a family of 9 it seemed like a great idea, but it’s tough to make batches that big and it doesn’t work with small batches. Maybe it’s time to throw in the towel and get something smaller so I can do this more often.


Ana     at 4:23 pm

Omg, I must make this ice cream! We love pumpkin everything, including ice cream, but my son can’t eat dairy so he cannot enjoy it. Until today, now he can and I can’t wait to pop open a can of pumpkin! I am definitely making this Emily! Thanks for so many wonderful recipes you share with us, awesome!!


Cindy Robinson     at 4:36 pm

I have asked Santa for this same ice cream maker. I cannot wait to make my own, this will surely be on the list. I will be able to use the Almond Milk staring at me in my pantry that I bought because of your vegan influence but I’m skeered to try :)


Kathryn     at 5:17 pm

I’ve been reading your blog for months and loooove it! Just voted for you again- I had to sign up with Food Buzz a few weeks ago just to vote! Best of luck!


Bonnie     at 5:22 pm

Delicious! After this comment I’m off to vote for you – and will be trying out your cake for a Christmas party in the coming weeks! Looks great. :) Just wondering – is there any way to use those ingredients to make the ice cream without an ice cream maker? Kinda like the banana soft serve? Just curious if I could freeze the mixture and then reblend it…Thanks!


Ashley M. [at] (never home)maker     at 5:45 pm

!!!! Emily. Incredible. I really need to buy an ice cream maker. We used to have one, but then got rid of it because I didn’t — at the time — have the creativity to come up with frozen treats. You’ve really got me thinking now! This is so awesome!


Emma (Sweet Tooth Runner)     at 5:52 pm

Darn it, I don’t have an ice-cream maker either! Looks delicious! And I’ve voted! :D


Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen)     at 7:19 pm

I need that ice cream now to balance out my veggie soup I just had! I think pumpkin season must continue on! It looks great!


Shannon     at 7:24 pm

Totally voted for you, and I’m going to get an ice cream maker ASAP!


Felicia (a taste of health with balance)     at 7:36 pm

Emily- as I type this your pomegranate upside down cake is in the oven. I had a pomegranate waiting to be used and I could not wait until Christmas to try this out… made a few variations based on what I had, fingers crossed!


Emily @ The Front Burner Blog Reply:

Omg – you are the first person to make it! Can’t wait to hear how it goes. So exciting! :)


Kathi     at 9:29 pm

I must try the ice cream. I tried the pumpkin cake you posted a while back with the vegan butter cream frosting. It was SO good. I swear I can’t make that to often. It seemed to disappear and I think I ate most of it. It was fabulous! Must try the ice cream next.


Katy (The Singing Runner)     at 9:56 pm

I want to make this but I don’t have an ice cream maker.

I guess I could go all old school and use the coffee can and ice method?


Maryea (Happy Healthy Mama)     at 10:05 pm

GAH-I have to stop reading food blogs. Now I have to add ice cream maker to my list of kitchen appliances I MUST HAVE.


holly     at 10:22 pm

Can you deliver this to me for my birthday??

(It’s tomorrow)


Amy     at 12:23 am

Thank you for creating a vegan ice cream recipe with ingredients I have on hand! I love your apron – too cute!


Kristy     at 8:54 am

Please keep posting your “taster” faces! :-)


Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down)     at 9:35 am

This gives me good reason to buy an icecream machine. It’s going on my wish list. :D


Ashley     at 9:58 am

If you’re not vegan, can you use regular milk in place of the almond milk? Does it measure out the same? I’d still like to use the coconut milk though.


Emily @ The Front Burner Blog Reply:

Yep, regular milk would be just fine – same amount. Hope you like it!


Ashley Reply:

Thanks! I know I will!!


Sarah K. @ The Pajama Chef     at 10:26 am

just voted!!


Natalia - a side of simple     at 11:19 am

I’m not a fan of pumpkin but I just sent this link to about 5 different family members who are obsessed. I expect them to owe me their lives, that’s how good this sounds!


Emily @ The Front Burner Blog Reply:

Haha awesome!


Amber K     at 11:37 am

I prefer soft-serve “ice cream.” Gotta love frozen bananas and a food processor! Throw some pumpkin and spices in there and….sorry started to drool. ;)


Marty     at 12:09 pm

I was lucky enough to get two bowls with my ice cream maker and I keep one in the freezer at all times. Definitely going to try this!


Emily @ The Front Burner Blog Reply:

You ARE lucky!


Cary     at 2:49 pm

I made this yesterday and thought it was perfect. I can’t wait to make the cake…I will wait for Christmas so that I can share it with my family (vegan members aplenty!)
I’ve been faithfully voting for you in the PFB competition, but have never figured out the voting…how many votes do I have? Can I vote everyday? I’m so confused.


Emily @ The Front Burner Blog Reply:

I’m so glad you liked it! And thanks so much for the vote – sadly, you can only vote once. :( Thank you for trying though!!


Haley     at 5:47 pm

I just have to tell you how glad I am to see that you’re still in the competition. I was pretty shocked to learn that you were just about the only one in this round doing simple, healthy, vegan food. Rock on, girl. Keep up the great work!


Emily @ The Front Burner Blog Reply:

Thank you so much – that means a lot. I’m excited to be representing for the healthy, simple cooks out there. We can’t all be gourmets and pros, but that doesnt mean we can’t eat well.


Tina     at 5:59 pm

Absolutely love the Vitamix lid that Indy chewed!


Jenna     at 8:58 pm

cannot wait to make this! I’ve only seen it with full fat coconut milk- glad it works with lite as well :)


Erin     at 1:52 pm

I just made this and the only thing I have to say is YUM! It is awesome! Actually I have one more thing to say…It was the easiest thing ever! Thanks for the awesome recipe!
