Move over pumpkin pie and pumpkin spice latte. Here’s pumpkin spice ice cream made with real pumpkin that can be enjoyed anytime of the year. This ice cream recipe uses a combination of spices and real steamed pumpkin puree, coconut milk base, vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. The texture is so creamy and so full of the pumpkin spice aroma, if you are a fan of the Starbucks pumpkin latte, I’d say this is a much enjoyable version of that.

I couldn’t get hold of pumpkin spice, none of the grocery stores in Singapore, where I live, sells it. So I’m using a combination of different spices – ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground allspice, ground ginger and ground clove. Ground clove is not commonly available in the mainstream supermarket. I managed to find it in an Indian grocery store but it’s near expiry, thanks to the kind storekeeper for her honesty. So in the end, I grind a few tablespoon of cloves into powder form.

I used a fresh pumpkin for this recipe. Simply peel and cut into smaller pieces and steam on high heat, then mash the pumpkin to get pumpkin puree. It’s a much better and fresher version of using canned pumpkin puree. I’ve also opted to use coconut milk as a base in this recipe as pumpkin and coconut compliments really well. The coconut milk should not be too diluted nor too thick in order for the ice cream mixture to churn well in the ice cream maker. You can opt to use whipping cream if you prefer a dairy based ice cream.
