Sometimes the simplest things are the most delicious. That’s certainly the case with this Easy No-Churn Pumpkin Ice Cream. With just 4 ingredients, ice cream doesn’t get any better than this.
Dairy-Free Pumpkin Ice Cream
There is no milk or heavy cream in this ice cream. Instead, the two main ingredients are frozen bananas and pumpkin puree. Making ice cream with frozen bananas is an easy way to control the sugar/sweetness and eliminate dairy. Plus by using frozen bananas you can get a soft-serve texture with a blender and then there is no need for an ice cream maker.
I like to use really, really ripe bananas for this pumpkin ice cream and for my banana bread recipe. Once bananas start to get dark spots, my kids refuse to eat them. So I let them sit on the counter until then get brown all over. Then I pop them in the freezer until I'm ready to use them.
If you want to freeze bananas, it is best to use really ripe bananas. First unpeel the banana and place into a plastic freezer bag. You can leave it whole or slice into segments. Place the bag in the freezer and store there until ready to use.

How Do You Make No-Churn Pumpkin Ice Cream
I like to use a high-speed blender, like my Vitamix. To make this ice cream, add the frozen bananas, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin pie spice in the blender. Blend until smooth.
Next, add maple syrup or honey until you get the desired sweetness. Often, you will just need a touch of sweetener as the bananas are already sweet. Pulse the blender to combine the maple syrup or honey into the freezer mixture.
Serve immediately as soft serve or place in a freezer-safe container and freeze overnight.
- 3 bananas, sliced and frozen overnight
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
Combine bananas, pumpkin puree, and spices in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
Add maple syrup until you get the desired sweetness. Pulse to combine.
Serve immediately as soft serve or place in a container and freeze overnight.
