Creamy dairy free maple pumpkin coconut milk ice cream! A fun and flavorful frozen treat for Fall!

Confession…I accidentally never put away my snow globes after last winter. On the bright side, I guess that means we’re already sort of ready for Christmas and winter this year. I’m so not a fan of decorating for holidays, but mostly because it means having to pack it all up again. So much stuff that you only keep out for maybe a month, if that. Who has time or space for all of it?! I believe in one holiday at a time, so there will be no new Christmas decorating until after Thanksgiving. I can’t promise I’ll hold off on Christmas movies though. Just maybe one or two here or there. And yes, I realize it’s only Halloween BUT tomorrow is November, so it’s okay as long as I wait until tomorrow… right? When do you start decorating for the holidays?

Have you heard about a hatching bird toy? From what I’ve heard, it’s supposed to be one of the super hot toys of the season. I watched a video and don’t really get it… but this is also coming from the same person who never liked Furbies or those watch pets. Thankfully my kids haven’t seen this hatching bird or asked for it, because it’s already flying off of shelves and is already going for triple the price on eBay and other places. Just nuts. It actually reminds me of stories I was told about one Christmas when I was little. The year Cabbage Patch Kids were the hot item. My mom stood in line, waiting to get one. I still had it, as recently as a few years ago and it might even still be at my parents house for all of the grandkids to use. Her time in line was obviously well worth it.

I’m in the group that believes ice cream should be enjoyed all year long. It shouldn’t be reserved for the warmer months, even if that’s when most people enjoy it more. We always have ice cream on hand and I rarely fully pack away my ice cream maker. It’s close by, just in case the mood strikes.

I’m a huge fan of seasonal ice cream. I’ve made a pumpkin gingersnap ice cream and even an apple butter ice cream in the past, to name just a few, but there’s always room for more!

If you’re a fan of pumpkin goodies, then you absolutely must try this creamy maple pumpkin ice cream! Bonus, it’s dairy free, making this perfect for anyone with a dairy allergy or intolerance.

Easy creamy and completely delicious. This maple pumpkin ice cream is a must make Fall treat!
