Homemade Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream
Straight To Recipe

The Flavor We FALL For! 

Some may call it basic, but I don't care. I was born and raised just north of Boston (which is where I still am) and have been used to all things pumpkin taking over the grocery store shelves as soon as Labor Day weekend. All you'd see was a sea of orange products ... everywhere. And one of my favorite treats was pumpkin ice cream. A creamy, cool, unexpectedly delish scoop was always a highlight after apple picking at the local farm.

When Shelly and I started True Scoops, we wanted our ice cream mix to be a canvas for all the nostalgic flavors we enjoyed as kids as well as the new flavors we dream about now. Customizable, homemade ice cream. It's a good thing! 

This recipe is super easy to make and requires no cooking! Just a little bit of patience while the ice cream freezes. I always find that's the best time to make the butterscotch sauce! 

This ice cream recipe uses our Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Mix as a base flavor and you'll also need a pouch of our Salted Butterscotch Sauce Mix (it's THE best). 

Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream
Makes: 1 Quart
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Total Time: 3+ Hours
You'll Need:
  • 2/3 Cup Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 tsp Pumpkin Spice Blend
  • 1 pouch True Scoops Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Mix
  • 2 3/4 Cups Half & Half (for the ice cream)
  • 1/2 Cup Half & Half (for the sauce)
  • 1 pouch Salted Butterscotch Sauce Mix
  • How To Make The Ice Cream
    BLOT the pumpkin puree between several paper towels, pressing out as much liquid as possible (you'll be surprised, there's a lot!)
    FOLLOW the instructions for the ice cream mix (ice cream maker or blender) on the back of the pouch
    MIX the pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice into the liquid base
    CHURN or FREEZE based on the rest of the pouch instructions
    For The Sauce:
    WHISK 1/2 cup Half & Half and sauce mix in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes, until thick and bubbly
    COOL the sauce for at least 10 minutes before serving, the sauce will thicken as it cools
    REHEAT the sauce in 30 second increments in the microwave or until desired temp is reached, stirring in between

    Can you use some other thing less fattening than half and half like maybe Greek yogurt?
