Easy Pumpkin Ice Cream Ingredients

The recipe is made in two stages – you have the main ice cream mixture and then the pumpkin spice latte swirl. For the pumpkin ice cream, you need heavy cream, vanilla instant pudding mixture, coffee powder, pumpkin pie spice, and sweetened condensed milk.

Ingredients to make pumpkin spice latte ice cream without an ice cream maker.

The pumpkin swirl calls for more cream, vanilla pudding, pumpkin pie spice, and sweetened condensed milk, along with pure pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling), sugar, vanilla extract, and salt.

For more detailed instructions with weights and measurements, jump to the printable recipe card.

Prepare the pumpkin swirl mixture: Combine the pumpkin swirl ingredients in a small bowl.
Prepare the ice cream mixture: Whip the cream until the soft peaks stage in a large bowl, then add the vanilla pudding, coffee, and pumpkin spice, and beat until stiff peaks form.
Finish off the ice cream recipe: Add the sweetened condensed milk to the whipped cream coffee mixture, then taste and add more coffee if needed.
Swirl both mixtures together: Layer the base mixture and pumpkin swirl mixture in a freezer safe container, then use a butter knife to make the swirl pattern. If you don’t have a lidded container, you can use a loaf pan or two and seal the top with plastic wrap and then a layer of foil.
Freeze the ice cream: Cover tightly and freeze for 12 hours or until frozen, then serve when ready.

Substitutions and Variations

You can use different spices in place of the pumpkin pie spice, perhaps a pinch each of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice, or swap another extract for the vanilla.

Another flavour of pudding mix would work, so long as it’s the instant kind. And of course you can vary the amount of coffee used, depending how strong you want the flavour to be.

Freeze: It won’t surprise you to discover this is best kept in the freezer, like with any other ice cream recipe. It will keep for about 3 months, which is less than store-bought ice cream and is because it doesn’t contain the preservatives or stabilizers found in the commercial brands.

No Churn Ice Cream Recipe FAQs

What is the instant pudding mix added for and can you make the ice cream base without it?

The pudding mix helps stabilize the ice cream and give it a creamy, soft serve texture and help you reach the stiff peak stage when mixing the ice cream ingredients. The lightness it adds makes it creamy instead of having tiny ice crystals. Now, you can leave this ingredient out if you want but bear in mind the texture of the ice cream will be different.

What kind of coffee is best to use?

That’s up to you and you can use any brand you happen to enjoy. Good quality coffee tends to be finer in consistency which is good for making ice cream since you want it dissolved into the mixture, but you can use whatever you have. Instant espresso is nice here. And either regular or decaf is fine.
