Friends, I just love the month of September. It think because it’s still full of warm days, but there’s also such a hint of fall every morning with the chill in the air. My morning walks are my favorite!

Easy Pumpkin No-Churn Ice Cream

I’m not quite in the mood to start setting out fall decor, are you? But I really do love fall and pumpkin recipes and mums (I just bought one!), and starting to think about nesting!

Here’s another recipe to save for this beautiful fall season: Bourbon Maple Pumpkin Pie Parfaits.

So good, make ahead and keep handy in your fridge for company!

Hopefully you can discipline yourself and not eat it all (like I would). :)

DELISH Pumpkin No-Churn Ice Cream with Ginger Snap Cookies

Fall is here!

Another thing I love about the crisp autumn air is the cool breeze that blows the aspens on the side of our house.

I love this quote by Melissa Michaels: “Fall Nesting doesn’t depend on what you see outside your door, it’s about what you long to feel on the inside.” [Don’t forget you can win a $500 Wayfair card, plus you may like this Apple Goody Dessert!]

I love the coziness that happens in our home as our schedule slows down a tiny bit, and we nestle inside earlier when it gets dark and chilly outside. We hang together as a family.

Then on the weekends, invite a few friends into our home for dinner.

For dessert? This super easy ice cream recipe!

Print Recipe Pin Recipe Save Recipe


  • 1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup 100% pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • Pinch of cloves and allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange zest, optional
  • 4 oz ginger thins or ginger snaps, roughly chopped
  • 2 cups heavy cream


  • In a medium bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, spices, and orange zest (optional).
  • In a second large bowl, beat the heavy cream with an electric mixer or in a stand mixer on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, combine the pumpkin puree with the vanilla, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange zest (optional), sweetened condensed milk, cloves, and allspice. Mix until all ingredients are well combined.
  • Next, gently fold the whipped cream into the pumpkin, stopping when the mixture looks smooth, with no more streaks of whipped cream.
  • Finally, mix in the cookies until they are well dispersed.
  • To freeze the ice cream, pour the mixture into a loaf pan, or metal cake pan. Spread the top until it is flat, then press a sheet of wax paper on top until there are no air bubbles underneath—this will prevent the top from getting icy.
  • Transfer to the freezer and freeze for at least 6 hours.
  • Serve with cones, cookies, or simply in bowls.
