Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream

Pumpkin cheesecake ice cream makes a delicious low carb dessert.  Have a side of this with warm pumpkin pie for a double helping of pumpkin.

If you like pumpkin pie and ice cream then you will be in heaven with this recipe!  The cream cheese gives it a cheesecake-like taste too!  Just divine! We were walking the dogs by the beach one Sunday morning and I had a  sudden hankering for some ice cream.  So when I got home, whipped up a batch of this.   The mixture itself before it went into the freezer was delicious enough to drink!  Every time I took it out of the freezer to stir, the Chief Taster appeared with a spoon to “sample it again”.

I need an ice cream maker but sadly where we currently live has a choice of two models.  One that looks like something my great-grandmother would churn butter with and another that makes me swear at the price and wonder if they moved a decimal point whilst pricing.   So sadly, I use the method of placing in the freezer, then stirring every 45 minutes until frozen.  I was tempted just to leave it and see what happens as either way, I was going to eat it…
