Frozen Pumpkin Delight Recipe
This is another recipe from Barbara’s days at the Glenwood Cooperative at Purdue University. It comes from her friend, Lindsey T, who was really involved with the kitchen activities when Barbara lived in the house.
We love frozen pumpkin recipes—scratch that, we love ALL pumpkin recipes. Some of our favorites are Pumpkin Crunch, Pumpkin Waffles, Grandma’s Pumpkin Chiffon Pie, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins, and Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pie Pudding.
This no bake frozen pumpkin pie is a crowd-pleaser, especially with children who often aren’t fans of traditional pumpkin pie.
How To Make Frozen Pumpkin Pie Recipe with Ice Cream
Mix together pumpkin, sugar, vanilla and spices. Fold in softened vanilla ice cream. Pour into a 13×9 inch pan. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and foil and freeze overnight. To serve, remove from freezer ten minutes before serving. Cut into pumpkin pie ice cream squares.

Notes About Frozen Pumpkin Dessert Recipe:
- Be sure to use the 100 percent pure pumpkin (some cans may say “solid-pack”), not the pumpkin pie filling.
- It is very important to cover this pumpkin pie ice cream with plastic wrap and foil to prevent freezer burn.
- If properly covered, this frozen pumpkin dessert recipe can be made ahead and kept in the freezer for several weeks.
- Serve it in squares with a dollop of whipped cream (or Cool Whip, your choice, we don’t judge). Or grab your ice cream scoop and a bowl and serve a couple of scoops and add some toppings like your favorite nuts.
- Barbara also suggests putting a spoonful in your coffee to make your own PSL!
- Nuts are optional for this recipe. Sprinkle them over top before freezing or mix into the frozen pumpkin ice cream mixture. To make it over the top yummy, add these cinnamon glazed nuts.
