If you live in a warm area, this frozen pumpkin sherbet treat will give you a little taste of fall. I also love making guiltless Banana Ice Cream using just frozen bananas and also Mexican “Unfried” ice cream!

It may be October, but we’ve been having some hot weather the past few days here in New York. I’m not quite ready to put my ice cream maker away just yet. By the way, the ice cream maker I use is a Cuisinart Ice cream Maker and it’s super easy to use. I recently tried the pumpkin ice cream from Trader Joe’s and it was so delightful and wanted to see if I could recreate it, without all the fat of course.

Now, if you don’t own an ice cream maker, you can still make this frozen treat in a food processor. Simply freeze the pumpkin mixture in an ice cube tray. Once frozen you then throw the cubes in the processor until smooth and creamy.  It’s truly the ultimate Autumn guilt-free snack, breakfast or dessert!

  1. FYI, for anyone not wanting to go through the hassle to make their own, Edy's Slow Churn has a Pumpkin flavor reduced fat ice cream that I think is just as good as Trader Joe's but only has 90 calories in a 1/2 cup serving. Even better skinny bargain.

  2. Has anyone tried this with a sugar substitute for a NSA/Sugar Free version? My mother is diabetic and I'm always looking for ways to make treats she will love that will fit into her diet. Thanks!

  3. This is sooo good! The first time I made it I too had problems with it freezing completely but it was my ice cream maker that wasn't working. I tried it again tonight and it is awesome. I got some ginger snap thins from Trader Joe's and sprinkled a few on top. Tastes amazing! As a side note I ran out of vanilla extract it was still really good!

  4. This was very easy to make and it came out perfect! Creamy. Delicious. My daughter suggested we put a scoop in a mini graham cracker crust and top with fat free whipped topping. Umm, could be Thanksgiving dessert!

  5. All of your posts about making different ice creams make me want to get an ice cream maker! This one especially since I LOVE all things pumpkin, and one of my girlfriends just told me how wonderful Trader Joe's pumpkin ice cream is – unfortunately, we don't have a TJ here… So, now I've started shopping for an ice cream maker on Amazon, but don't know what kind to choose. Do you have a suggestion? What kind do you have? Thanks so much!

    Sucha great recipe. It tastes so good. I have to admit I ate it for breakfast. I am going to add coconut milk next time and cut back on the sugar

  7. I don't have an ice cream maker either, but on CHOW.com, there is a video that shows you how to use your food processor to make ice cream.

    Just look under their instructional section (videos) and it will tell you how.

    This sounds good, Gina. I am going to try it soon! Thanks!
