Pumpkin Ice Cream With Toasted Pecans is a piece of pumpkin pie combined with pecan pie, only without the crust. This creamy ice cream includes the best of both desserts in an easy no-churn recipe. Wouldn’t you love to have a no-fail dessert recipe you could whip up anytime?
Mixing new with traditional
Did you have a nice Thanksgiving? We did; terrific family plus outstanding food! Did you do the typical turkey with all the trimmings? We made our regular Southwestern brined turkey, Italian Dressing or Stuffing with Sausage, and Hard Italian Rolls. We did try some new dishes, Broccoli with Mushrooms and make ahead mashed potatoes with sautéed onion. Do you like experimenting with new recipes? We enjoy mixing new with traditional.
Pumpkin for Thanksgiving
Toasted Pecan Pumpkin Ice Cream was Honey’s idea. Shelley, our daughter, said she’d bring the sweets, which she did, a mouth-watering pumpkin pie dessert and an apple pie. In fact, our grandsons helped her make them. We had a lot of heavy whipping cream leftover, so the perfect solution was to make a no-churn ice cream and serve it with the other desserts.
I think there is an unwritten rule that you have to use pumpkin in a dessert at Thanksgiving. We always like to follow the rules 😉 plus we had the ingredients, so it was a matter of mixing them together. Easier than pie! No-churn ice cream is the perfect quick no-fail dessert.
Easy no-churn pumpkin ice cream for dessert
All it takes to make No-Churn Toasted Pecan Pumpkin Ice Cream is a can of pumpkin pie filling, sweetened condensed milk, pecans, heavy whipping cream, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon liqueur. Put the creamy mixture in a freezer proof container and wait several hours. Waiting! That’s the hardest part. Now, isn’t this a simple recipe?
You say you don’t like pumpkin? That’s easily fixed!
What can I substitute for pumpkin pie filling?
My mind churns with easy ice cream ideas. 🙂
What’s your favorite flavor?
- Triple chocolate flavor?
- Rocky Road
- Cookie dough ice cream?
Let us know what ice cream flavors you’re making!
What does no churn mean?
No churn means you don’t need an ice cream maker to make the dessert. A churn can either be an electric one or crank.
Is sweetened condensed milk the same as evaporated milk?
The major difference is that sweetened condensed milk is always sweet while evaporated milk is not. Also, the sweetened condensed milk is thicker, almost caramel sauce like.
What is the difference between canned pumpkin and canned pumpkin pie filling?
Canned pumpkin is nothing more than cooked, pureed pumpkin. Pumpkin pie filling is flavored with spices and sweetened. This is what you want to use for the ice cream.

When we make any kind of frozen dessert we use these containers. They are thicker than regular plastic freezer containers and they keep the dessert from getting icy. We bought 3 of them and they are really handy to have.
