Why this easy pumpkin ice cream recipe works?

It’s super quick, fool-proof, ultra-delicious, and no special equipment is needed!

And surprise, even though it’s pumpkin-flavored, it’s not heavy, dense, or overly seasoned, as pumpkin desserts can sometimes be.

How long does it take to make this simple no-churn ice cream?

Honestly, it will take about 5 minutes from start to freezer.

How long does it take to freeze?

I would suggest freezing it (covered) for a minimum of 4 hours.

Do I have to use cinnamon whiskey in this recipe?

No. You can completely omit it if you’d like.

A light splash of alcohol helps to keep any ice crystals to a minimum in no-churn ice cream. However, the taste will still be delicious should you choose to forgo the cinnamon whiskey in this recipe.

What can be used in place of the cinnamon whiskey?

A teaspoon of cinnamon extract will work nicely, but it’s a completely optional ingredient.
