How do you make vegan pumpkin ice cream?
There are a few steps that you need to do in order to make this, but you don’t need any ice cream makers or other non-standard appliances.
To start, you need to make your homemade vegan condensed milk.
If you are using store bought vegan condensed milk you can skip that step.
Once you have your condensed milk prepped or ready from the store, then you will start by whipping your coconut whipped topping. Follow the instructions for making it from home or pour out the contents of the tub and whip it.
If you are making it from canned coconut milk, you will whip until stiff peaks form. If you are using store bought, then just blend until smooth consistency.
Next, whip in your pumpkin puree, vanilla, salt and spices.
Pour into a reusable ice cream container or freezer safe, air tight container and store at least 6 hours or overnight.
Scoop out amount desired as needed and serve.

CAN I MAKE THIS TOP 8 ALLERGEN FRIENDLY PUMPKIN ICE CREAM?
In the main recipe, we are using coconut whipped topping and condensed milk. However, it’s still possible to make this a Top 8 Allergen Friendly Ice Cream.
So let’s walk through this. We can replace the coconut whipped topping with an almond or rice whip topping depending on allergens. Both of those come in spray cans.
For the vegan condensed milk, we clearly outline how to make it in our linked post with any type of dairy free milk, so you could use oat or flax for Top 8 Allergen Friendly.
Those two switches will make this a Top 8 Allergen free ice cream.
HOW LONG WILL VEGAN ICE CREAM LAST IN THE FREEZER?
For the most part, as long as you are using products that don’t expire soon, vegan ice cream will last 3-6 months if stored properly. Then again, that’s if it lasts that long!
WHAT STORE BOUGHT PRODUCTS DO YOU USE?
Making this store bought, definitely makes the process go faster.
Our preferred products, if no coconut allergy is present, is So Delicious coconut whipped topping in the tub and the canned sweetened condensed coconut milk.
