Fall is quickly approaching, and even though we’re still hanging on to summer, pumpkin lovers are eagerly snatching up those cans from grocery store shelves!

But what do we do if we want a little of both?

This Frozen Pumpkin Dessert is perfect when you want a taste of summer and a taste of fall. It is cool and creamy, with a simple graham crumb crust, Chapman’s Butterscotch Ripple ice cream layer and pumpkin cream cheese layer.

It is easy to make (and no bake!), so it’s perfect for a Thanksgiving dinner or if you just want to stash a pan in the freezer to get you through those busy weeknights 😉

Chapman’s Ice Cream really makes this the perfect luscious and creamy dessert for any time of the year!

How to make this Frozen Pumpkin Dessert:

  • Start with your crust: just graham cracker crumbs and melted butter and we’re good to go!
  • Spread on a layer of softened Chapman’s ice cream and let freeze for 30-60 minutes to set — this ensures that our layers are clean and crisp!
  • Whip up your pumpkin cheesecake filling and spread on top of your frozen ice cream layer.
  • Freeze for 6 hours to set completely — you can cover and freeze up to 3 months!
  • Top with sweetened whipped cream, and let warm for 20-30 minutes before slicing and serving — the amount of time will depend on how cold your freezer is and how warm your house is!

Variations on this Pumpkin Dessert:

  • You can swap out the graham crumbs for another flavor of baking crumb or finely crushed cookies — gingersnaps would be great in here!
  • Swap out the Chapman’s Ice Cream for any flavor that you enjoy with pumpkin — chocolate, vanilla, maple walnut, caramel — anything goes!
  • Make mini Pumpkin Dessert cupcakes — repeat the same process in muffin cups lined with silicone liners (or a silicone muffin pan). Once frozen, pop them out and top with a swirl of whipped cream.
