Pumpkin Cookie Dough Ice Cream

It’s pumpkin AND cookie dough.

Pumpkin Pie Cookie Dough Ice Cream!

So it’s pretty much guaranteed to be awesome.

Like getting to eat your pumpkin pie and your ice cream all in one little scoop. Or two big scoops.

One won’t be enough.


Pumpkin Cookie Dough Ice Cream


  • 1/2 cup milk of choice, or coconut milk or nondairy creamer
  • 1 1/2 cups full-fat coconut milk or non-dairy creamer (For a lower-calorie version, see nutrition link below.)
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin or sweet potato puree (I used canned pumpkin) (160g)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda (omit if desired)
  • 1/4 cup xylitol or brown sugar (or regular sugar) (50g)
  • 2 nunaturals stevia packets, or omit and increase sugar to scant 1/2 cup
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (and optional: a pinch pumpkin pie spice)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp oat flour (or 1/4 cup rolled oats finely ground in a blender) (20g)
  • optional: handful of chocolate chips

Combine all ingredients (minus optional chips), and whisk until smooth. See “nutrition info” link below if you don’t have an ice cream maker. Otherwise, pour into your ice cream maker and churn. (It took 15 minutes in my Cuisinart.) Add chips if desired, stir, then transfer to an airtight container. Chill in the freezer for an hour or so, until true ice-cream consistency is reached. Note: homemade ice cream has its best texture if eaten the same day it’s made. Also, if you’re using coconut milk, make sure it’s the full-fat kind that comes in a can.

    Best thing I ate so far today was a microwave banana protein (powder) cake. Vegan, gluten-free and delicious!

    This ice cream looks so good! I love cookie dough… and pumpkin. Is it pretty firm, or is it softer? In the close up picture of the scoop it looks really liquidy, but my eyes are probably deceiving me! 🙂

  2. Amanda F says

    Yum, yum, yum! I am obsessed with all things pumpkin right now. I made your pumpkin baked oatmeal yesterday morning. Delicious!

  3. Anonymous says

    Sorry – your form wouldn’t let me leave my personal info above – trying again now. I am unclear as to how this is a cookie dough recipe – isn’t it really pumpkin chocolate chip? Or does the oat flour give it a dough taste? Thanks!

  4. Krista says

    The best thing I ate today was a molasses and mixed berry cake entirely sweetened with molasses. One of the tastiest things I have put in my mouth in a very long time. I needed the iron, so I searched the net for molasses recipes. My cake was a modified version of this one:

    It’s moist and tart and sweet with the tiniest hint of bitterness. You may want to try veganizing it. Molasses is a great sweetener to play with since it has so many minerals in it.

  5. Amber says

    Part of me says this sounds great, and part of me says “hmm..pumpkin and cookie dough together?!” I suppose the proof would be in the tasting, right? 🙂 ….I do need to thank you for posting ice cream recipes (dairy free!) that can be made without an ice cream maker, because THAT’S the best thing I’ve had so far today – vanilla ice milk for breakfast! With chopped almonds and sugar free chocolate. 🙂 It’s been a long time since I could have ice cream, so it was SO enjoyable. Thanks! 🙂
    P.S. I DID have other foods at breakfast. 🙂

  6. Lauren says

    Best thing today…blueberry pancakes! I made them for my daughter, and they turned out so fluffy and delicious! I love any recipe with oats, so this is a must try! 🙂

  7. Aja says

    OH my goodness! My two favorite things put together into one ice cream?!
    Since it’s only 10am where I am the best thing I’ve eaten today have been blackberries. my mom bought me a bunch when she came to visit yesterday. So good!

  8. Laura says

    The best thing I ate so far today was my usual breakfast parfait.
    I never have much success with your ice cream recipes (really need an ice cream maker!) but this still looks good!

  9. Rhonda says

    The best thing I’ve eaten today was one (I’m proud of my restraint!) of your no-flour chocolate brownies made with black beans. They are heavenly!

  10. Linde says

    Best things I ate today: The Ultimate Chocolate Fudge Pie from your recipe (made it for my bday yesterday!) and now Im eating a heavenly baked banana with chocolate banana butter!
    Love love LOVE your recipes!

  11. Tammy says

    Best thing I had today would have to a bowl of pumpkin seeds mixed with salsa. Cute photos; I love those baby cones! I was wondering about the doughnut, the one in the linked picture, right? They look so good! I thought you weren’t big on sweets- how’d it turn out? Chocolate on chocolate ( cake, never cared for yeast ) was always my favorite choice. ^^

  12. Danielle says

    Three of my favorite things.. Pumpkin chocolate and cookie dough! And ice cream!!!! Ahhhh I am so so excited about this post can’t wait to make it 🙂

  13. Emma says

    Sounds completely divine and perfect for the season! I was wondering if I could request a raw birthday cake for my best friend… no pressure but I have no idea where to start, as I live somewhere where you cannot things like coconut butter or cocoa butter! It would be amazing if you could try, or link me to a good one 🙂 love your blog to pieces Katie x

  14. Ange says

    Katie, I made this today and it was really yummy, except a slight bitter taste (not my stevia, I use nunaturals all the time and I’m used to that flavor)- I’m thinking it’s from the baking soda. Can you tell me what the baking soda does in the recipe? Does it make the icecream fluffier? I’m thinking I might leave it out next time if it is just for flavor…

      • Ange says

        I used the brown sugar, and no changes. I am starting to wonder if my tongue was off for the day- I’ve been making your black bean brownies all week and they are awesome, but they tasted bitter yesterday too so that solved it for me. Weird tongue day. 🙂

  15. Sarah the official CCK drooler @RomneyRyan2012 says

    The best thing I ate today was breakfast:Early Morning Peanut Butter and Banana Oatmeal (with caramelized bananas!) from Oh She Glows. SO good… I’ve been on an OSG kick and her recipes are my diet basically. They are THE BEST (and she’s all vegan too) and I’m picky with vegan things since I’m not one. Okay, I’ll stop 🙂
    I definitely recommend her site though (so yummy).
    I’m stopping now. Promise. 😀
