Pumpkin is a storehouse of many anti-oxidant vitamins such as vitamin-A, vitamin-C and vitamin-E. It is rich in B-complex group of vitamins like folates, niacin, vitamin B-6, thiamin and pantothenic acid. It is deliciously sweet and gives this ice cream a beautiful creamy texture.
250g cinnamon roasted pumpkin (cut pumpkin into chunks, sprinkle with cinnamon & bake, easy)
500ml coconut cream
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla powder or few drops vanilla extract
1/4- 1/2 cup of maple syrup- start with 1/4 cup and add more if you like it sweeter (or stevia to taste for a sugar-free option)
Purée pumpkin & coconut cream together in food processor, add remaining ingredients and blend to combine. If you have an ice cream maker, I am very jealous, you can use that now. If not, just pop it in a container in the freezer for about 4-5 hrs until set well and re-blitz it in the food processor just before serving to make it smooth and creamy.0
It sure looks so good & I need to make this stunning ice-cream! I still have oven roasted pumpkin in my freezer!
I have never thought to freeze roasted pumpkin! What a fabulous idea. This is why I love blogging- I learn so much from everyone else!!

Perfect or fall!! Love pumpkin!
Thank you The Healthy Flavor, pumpkin is so fabulous isn’t it! I think I love it almost as much as all things coconut 😉
Yum, will have to try this in my ice cream maker 😉 I can’t wait!!
Ah Paleoinpdx I am so jealous of you and your ice cream maker!! Enjoy!
Haha, I’m sure you’ll get one soon enough 😉 They’re pretty affordable. At the very least, it’s a great gift idea. Is your birthday coming up anytime soon?!
It was my b’day on Saturday! Where we’re you and your great ideas last week 😉
Oh man, happy belated!!! It might not be too late to get one. Did you get any b-day money? 😉
Haha, I actually don’t think they are very expensive and as a matter of fact I did get some b’day $$ genius thinking 😉 I am going to hunt for one now!
Amazon is a great place to look. I got a Cuisinart one from there for about $50 plus free shipping!
Love your work. Thanks I’m onto it 😉
Love your work!
Pumpkin Ice Cream – it makes sense now but I never would’ve thought it!
