Start off fall right – with ice cream! This easy no-churn ice cream takes just like a pumpkin cannoli or at least what I think a pumpkin cannoli would taste like.
I am a true believer of ice cream and its application year round. To prove my point I made a seasonal ice cream using pumpkin! It’s also super easy to make and does not require an ice cream maker, which means you have no excuses not to make this.
The flavor is pumpkin cannoli and while I have never actually tasted a pumpkin cannoli before I bet it tastes just like this ice cream, minus the cold factor. My favorite part is the crispy roasted pepitas which is why I sprinkled even more over the top.
