the great thanksgiving recipe swap: dairy-free pumpkin pie ice cream with chocolate swirl

By Carrie at Love Healthy Living

For ice cream:
1 13.5 oz. can full-fat coconut milk
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup unsweetened soymilk
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
For chocolate swirl:
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup unsweetened soymilk

**You will need a basic ice cream maker for this recipe. Be sure to freeze the bowl overnight.
In a medium sized-bowl, combine all ice cream ingredients and whisk together until thoroughly combined. Pour into ice cream freezer bowl and churn for 35 minutes.
In a small saucepan, heat soymilk until just simmering. Remove from heat and whisk in chocolate chips until melted.
When ice cream is finished churning, place a layer in a glass container.
Spread a layer of melted chocolate on top and repeat twice.
Place container in freezer for an additional two hours or until completely frozen.

    YUM! I love icecream and since I’m allergic to diary this is definitely delicious looking. I’ll have to give it a try. My mom’s got a couple ice cream freezer bowls.

    Any suggestions if you’re avoiding soy and rice milk? Maybe almond milk?

    Hi everyone,

    It’s Carrie, I’m the one who submitted this recipe to Jenna. I noticed Meghan asked if almond milk could be substituted for the soymilk and that would work fine. I would just use an unsweetened, plain version. Also, I just wanted to note that even though this recipe is dairy-free, the texture is very, very similar to ice cream. It’s really good! Remember to use the full-fat version of coconut milk, not a lite one. Enjoy!
