Ginger Pumpkin Spice Paleo Ice Cream! Just in time for Thanksgiving…

November 21st, 2013
Ginger Pumpkin Paleo Ice Cream

Here we are again rapidly approaching my personal favorite holiday, Thanksgiving!

Beyond taking time out to rest and relax with friends and family, the amazing food is clearly the big draw here.

Last year we covered a lot of ground with Thanksgiving recipes, which you can find here.

Last night I got a rare craving for sweets, and figured if we were going to make something it may as well be Thanksgiving themed, something everyone could easily make for their family next week.

The result was incredible, and you MUST try this!

Ginger Pumpkin Spice – Paleo Ice cream! This recipe is Gluten Free, Dairy Free, and and has no refined sugars in it. Prep time is 10 minutes, cooking time is around 25.

Tools needed:
Blender, Ice Cream Maker, Knife

spice ingredients


  • 1 can full fat organic coconut milk
  • 2 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp minced ginger(or more if you want it spicy!)
  • 1/2 cup organic pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup real maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


If your liquid ingredients are cold, it’ll help the ice cream set faster, so keep your coconut milk and pumpkin puree in the fridge until you’re ready to assemble the dish.

Start by placing your cold coconut milk, pumpkin puree, vanilla and maple syrup in your blender. Next, measure out your spices and add them to the mixture.

Mince your ginger as finely as possible, and toss it in the blender. Turn it on high and get it frothy!


Once you’ve blended the ingredients together  do a taste test – Does the mixture need more cinnamon? Nutmeg? Ginger? Check it out and see if you need to add anything. It should taste fantastic if you got it right.

If the mix tastes awesome, it’s time to put it in the ice cream maker – It should take around 15 minutes or so to cool down and start to resemble soft serve.

Once it reaches the consistency you like, remove from the ice cream maker and place in a bowl in your freezer. Wait another 10 minutes or so for it to set, and then dig in!
