This VEGAN PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE ICE CREAM is a dream! It is NO-CHURN, oil-free, dairy-free, gluten-free and made with cashews, coconut milk, pumpkin, coconut sugar, maple syrup and pumpkin spices and just 8 ingredients total!
Yup. We get to enjoy the most popular seasonal Starbucks beverage of all time, in ice cream form. A vegan version at that. Oh! AND no-churn so you don't need to cry any tears, as there is no ice cream maker needed! Are you as excited about it as I am? I can't even begin to describe how luscious and ultra creamy this ice cream is. It seriously might be my favorite all-time ice cream I've made. But, I'm a HUGE spice lover, so this is right up my alley. It's the kind of ice cream that you keep going back to the freezer and sneaking bites.
And before anybody starts pointing out the fat or calorie content of this, yes, it's fattening! It is ice cream folks and I'm not into ice cream tasting like diet food. I want it to be rich and creamy. If this isn't your thing, fine, just exit the stage left. If you are avoiding it, totally understood. 🙂 I am not though, and it's still a billion times better than dairy. OR, if you are big nice cream (banana ice cream) fan, then check out my pal, Natalie at Feasting on Fruit and her amazing Pumpkin Pie Nice Cream! It's beautiful.
NO-CHURN VEGAN PUMPKIN ICE CREAM
Don't let the dairy-free, vegan, oil-free terms fool you, this ice cream is RICH, decadent, ridiculously creamy and TO DIE FOR. It was even amazing straight out of the blender, while warm. If you have an ice cream maker, then by all means, use it. It will be even better and creamier, BUT you don't have to use one.
Now, it wouldn't be a Pumpkin Spice Latte without the traditional whipped cream on top, now would it? I used So Delicious CocoWhip and it is simply incredible. A bit too sweet for my taste, but just a little is needed.
VEGAN PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE
Now, to complete this in full Starbucks fashion, I then topped it with my homemade Vegan Pumpkin Spice Sauce. Guys, this ice cream is amazing, buttttt adding the whip cream and pumpkin spice sauce made it seriously, incredible. That sauce. That sauce! It only takes about 10 minutes to make and it is out of this world.
