Just because it’s fall doesn’t mean ice cream season is over… it’s honestly always ice cream season at our office. This year, we’re tweaking our usual habit for a healthier option. Homemade, vegan, full of coconut and pumpkin health benefits. Yes, you can still get some health benefits out of dessert! Here’s how it’s made:

15 oz can coconut milk
1 level cup of pumpkin puree
1/2 cup brown sugar
2/3 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground cloves

1. Combine all ingredients in a large pot
2. Stir over low-heat until the sugar dissolves
3. Transfer to a bowl and freeze for 1 1/2 hours
4. In an ice cream maker, churn for 10-15 minutes
5. Top with candied walnuts and ground ginger snaps

Editor’s Note: If you don’t have an ice cream maker, you can blend the frozen mixture in a high-speed blender. It won’t have the same consistency but the amazing flavors will be there!
