Making Tuesday Tasty-Pumpkin Ice Cream

It's hot hot hot outside so here's a sweet recipe for my fellow pumpkin lovers. It can also help you dream about when it starts cooling down in the Fall!


1 cup milk (I used 1 1/2 %)
2 cups half-and-half cream
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
3 pita pocket bread (6-inch pitas)
cooking spray (Pam)
cinnamon stick (optional garnish)


Mix all ice cream ingredients in a bowl with an electric mixer for about 2 minutes, until sugar and honey are dissolved.

Turn on ice cream maker and pour ingredients into top. Let ice cream maker process for about 20-30 minutes and preferred consistency reached.

To make pita chips, heat oven to 350°F.

Mix together tbsp sugar, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, and 1/8 tsp ground cardamom.

Slice pita breads into 8 wedges each and place on cookie sheet.

Spray pita chips with cooking spray. Sprinkle sugar mixture generously over pita chips. Turn pita chips over. Spray other side with cooking spray and sprinkle with sugar mixture.

Bake in heated oven for 8-9 minutes.

To serve, scoop ice cream into dish and garnish with 2-3 pita chips and cinnamon stick if using.
