Homemade ice cream with delicious pumpkin flavor and a marshmallow swirl that is the prefect treat!
Here we are with my absolute last pumpkin recipe of the season. I'm not gunna lie, I'm kinda sad about it.
I originally didn't set out to make so many different pumpkin recipes this year but somehow it just happened. I bought a couple cans of pumpkin puree to make just a couple dishes and then it turned into an entire month of pumpkin recipes. haha
Every time I would make a recipe, it would only require 1 cup or so of pumpkin and I would always have a little leftover in the fridge when I was done. Then in my constant need to not waste food, I would need to try and come up with something to do with all the leftover pumpkin. Which then turned out to me needing to buy more because I didn't have enough leftover the first time, then I would have more leftover after making that recipe…. it was a vicious cycle.
But now the cycle has ended and you are left with this pumpkin marshmallow ice cream. I know, so sad.
I've only used my ice cream maker a handful of times but I feel that each time I make a new flavor, it just turns out better and better. I've seen some pumpkin ice cream floating around the inter-webs and thought it would be nice to try. I mean, we already have pumpkin flavored everything else… why not ice cream?
It turned out just as I had hoped and I have been eating it nonstop since making it. It has a subtle hint of pumpkin and a sweet marshmallow fluff swirl that is a nice little added bonus. So give yourself a break from all the pie that you ate for Thanksgiving and try this instead!
