no-churn pumpkin & gingersnap ice cream

Ok, so are you ready for an amazing no-churn ice cream recipe!?!

This is my Fall-version of the no-churn recipe I shared last month . . . pumpkin & gingersnap!

Words can't describe how crazy good it is. Really!! 

It all started when I came across this limited edition of CARAMEL condensed milk several weeks ago. I bought a few cans knowing that something amazing would come from baking with it.

I originally thought of making a basic no-churn CARAMEL ice cream - which would've still been yummy, BUT I knew that I could be more creative than that. So I waited. And I'm so glad that I did, because in the quiet hours - one early morning - I thought of a GREAT way to use this CARAMEL sweetness. It turns out to be the perfect warm-flavored base for a Fall-inspired no-churn ice cream! 

Friends, you have to try this!

Well, this one - and my recipe for slow-cooker pumpkin and caramel bread pudding that I'm sharing in a few days! It's also on my list of TOP 3 favorite Fall desserts this year!

Ok, back to the ice cream . . .

The base is creamy sweet with the warm flavors of caramel and pumpkin spices. I also add 3/4 cup of pumpkin puree, as it adds a beautiful soft orange hue and great texture. 

I thought that gingersnap cookies would be a great addition to the ice cream . . . and they are! They add a second layer of spiciness and the perfect crunch!  

No-churn pumpkin & gingersnap ice cream might be the perfect Fall-inspired (frozen) dessert!

I can't wait to hear what you think of it too!

Pumpkin and gingersnaps . . . a match made in heaven!!

no-churn pumpkin & gingersnap ice cream
.     .     .     .     .     .
1 can (14 ounces) CARAMEL-flavored sweetened condensed milk
2 cups cold heavy cream
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/4 teaspoons pumpkin spice
1 bag of gingersnap cookies, broken into smaller pieces
**Harder cookies - like Nabisco - keep the most crunch (softer ones will dissolve)**
.     .     .     .     .     .

In a medium bowl, stir together condensed milk, pumpkin puree, vanilla, and pumpkin spice.

 In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat cream on high until stiff peaks form, 3 minutes.

With a rubber spatula, gently fold whipped cream into condensed milk mixture.

Fold in 2 cups (or more if you like) crushed gingersnap cookies.

Pour into a 4 1/2-by-8 1/2-inch loaf pan. Sprinkle more crushed gingersnap cookies on top.

Freeze until firm, 6 hours.

LET'S STAY in touch!

  1. This looks so creamy, it is seriously making my mouth water! YUM!!!!

  2. OH MY OH MY! Save my mouth! If I could reach thru the screen and have a spoonful I would be tasting it already! Looks amazing and I love those flavors. Wow thanks for sharing, I'm going to try this soon!

  3. You had me at Eagle Brand and when I saw caramel Eagle Brand...I'm obsessed! Wishing I had some with my morning coffee!!

  4. You are a genius! I bought a pumpkin ice cream over the weekend, with little cinnamon-y bits in it...but this looks WAY better. Thanks for sharing :)

  5. Yes indeed the no-churn ice cream is amazing and there is no end to the variations. This one is fantastic. I love the addition of the cookies for crunch and flavor. I didn't even know that there is now a caramel version of the sweetened condensed milk. When I wanted to caramelize it I had to simmer the can in water for quite a while. Then it would turn that wonderful dark color. What a wonderful flavor for the fall. Your photos are incredible -- as usual!! Great recipe!! Have a wonderful weekend. Big Hugs!!

  6. Oh. My. Goodness.

  7. Yummy! can't wait to try this!

  8. Oh my gosh - if that doesn't look like heaven in a scoop, I don't know what does! On my to-do list for sure!
    Found you through Between Naps on the Porch.
