  • Ice cream maker
  • Saucepan
  • Large bowl
  • Measuring spoons
  • Dry measuring cups
  • Liquid measuring cups
  • Rubber Spatula
  • Ice cream scoop



  • Stir all ingredients except maple syrup and vanilla until fully blended.
  • Heat in a saucepan on the stove on medium heat until it reaches a boil. Stir occasionally to keep from burning. Stir in maple syrup and continue stirring until fully combined.
  • Let cool to room temperature. You can place in the refrigerator or freezer to cool the mixture faster but do not allow it to freeze.
  • Add vanilla and stir to mix evenly.
  • Pour into ice cream maker.
  • Once the ice cream is finished being made, remove from the ice cream maker and put it in a freezer-safe container.
  • Add more pumpkin spice blend if you want a stronger flavor and add cocoa nibs (optional).
  • Sprinkle cocoa nibs on top for extra fun (optional).


  • Add other toppings when serving like fresh raspberries or homemade chocolate sauce!
  • Don't add the vanilla when heating the coconut milk, you want to wait until it is cooled to add it. The little bit of alcohol that is in vanilla helps keep the ice cream softer in the freezer so that it isn't so hard to scoop out.
  • It is important to use coconut cream in this recipe and not just coconut milk.
  • If you are not using pure vanilla extract, omit if you are following a paleo lifestyle.
