How to make pumpkin cheesecake ice cream
This is an easy low carb ice cream recipe that can be made in an ice cream maker or as a no churn recipe. I used an ice cream maker just for an extra creamy texture.
All you need to make this keto ice cream is a handful of ingredients:
- Pumpkin puree - I used tinned puree. Always check the sugar content.
- Coconut milk - tinned coconut milk is used as it freezes well. Almond milk could be used but it may be icier.
- Cream cheese - No cheesecake recipe is complete without cream cheese!
- Low Carb sweetener - Allulose is always great for keto ice cream recipes, but try a golden low carb sweetener to enhance the pumpkin spice flavour.
- Pumpkin spice - If you can't find a jar of pumpkin spice you can mix your own.
Home made pumpkin spice

- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon ground all spice
