  • 1.75 quarts vanilla ice cream softened
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp orange juice


  • Place the softened vanilla ice cream in a large bowl and set aside.
  • Mix remaining ingredients (in a different bowl) with an electric mixer on low speed.  Blend into ice cream with a spoon.  Stir until all ingredients are mixed together.
  • Spread ice cream/pumpkin mixture in a 9" x 13" pan.  Cover, and freeze.  It takes a long time to get it fully frozen, so I'd make it the day before if you're planning it for a special occasion.
  • Let soften slightly before scooping and serving. Makes 8-10 servings.
  • Enjoy!
