Vegan Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream!

January 9th, 2010 11:17 am by Kelly Garbato

I know, I know. Ice cream!? On a snowy January morning!? In the middle of a bitter, polar-like, transnational cold snap!? Am I kidding!? A sadist!? Ms. Freeze, maybe!? What gives!?

Nah, I’m just a vegan – a vegan with a little extra, week-past-the-expiration-date Silk Pumpkin Spice stashed in the fridge. And since this liquid yum is only available a few months out of the year, there’s no way I’m letting it to go waste.

Enter: ice cream! Make a batch or two now, and freeze it ’til spring. Or eat in it front of a nice, cozy fire. Wev.

Bonus: you can now enjoy Silk’s holiday flavors year-round. Just in a different state, yes?

Silk Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream

2010-01-04 - Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream - 0007

Inspired by my earlier Vegan Soy Nog Ice Cream! recipe.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
4 cups Silk Pumpkin Spice soy milk, i.e., one full quart container (divided into 1/4 cup and 3 3/4 cup servings)
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice spices
2 tablespoon brown sugar

Directions

1. Combine 1/4 cup Pumpkin Spice soy milk with 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder. Mix/whisk well and set aside.

2. In a medium sized saucepan, bring the remaining 3 3/4 cups Pumpkin Spice soy milk to a boil over high heat.

3. Once the soy milk starts to bubble, reduce heat to medium and mix in the pumpkin spice spices and the brown sugar. Whisk well.

Optional: To taste for sweetness, mix in one tablespoon of brown sugar at a time. Also, in addition to pumpkin spice, you may want to experiment with nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and/or tumeric.

4. After you’ve seasoned the milk to your satisfaction, remove from heat and whisk in the arrowroot slurry.

5. Chill in the fridge for several hours or, better yet, overnight. Freeze according to your ice cream machine’s instructions.

6. Make it last – the next batch of Pumpkin Spice won’t hit the stores ’til next November, yo!
