Three-Ingredient Ice Cream Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Pierre's Pumpkin PieThanksgiving is a wonderful holiday! It is an annual celebration where we take stock of life’s blessings, make memories with friends and family and … of course … delight in many delicious and flavorful foods. From Uncle Jim’s spicy buffalo wing appetizers to grandma’s famous sweet potatoes, your Thanksgiving menu is filled with as much tradition as the holiday itself.

One of our favorite holiday traditions is Pierre’s famous Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie. So easy to prepare, just three ingredients, it’s a great recipe if you’re looking to include a simple-to-make extra dessert or if your pumpkin pies never quite turn out as mom’s always did. Best yet, it’s an easy recipe for children who want to contribute with a recipe of their own. It’s just as delicious as homemade pumpkin pie and could possibly open a spot in the oven for an extra dish of Aunt Hazel’s green been casserole!

Ingredients:

  • 1 store-bought or prepared graham cracker pie crust
  • 1 1.5 qt. container of Pierre’s Premium Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream
  • 1 tub non-fat whipped topping
  • Optional: Ground cinnamon, nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice

Remove ice cream from freezer; let sit for five-ten minutes to soften. Scoop ice cream into crust, flattening and spreading each scoop until the pie shell is full. Cover with foil and freeze until it’s time for dessert. Remove pie from freezer; cover with whipped topping. Sprinkle cinnamon or other spice on top before slicing and serving.

Easy, right? And tasty, too. Let’s face it: A slice of refreshing ice cream pie is the perfect treat after working in a hot kitchen all day.

Just for fun: Add some crunch with crushed graham crackers or ginger snaps! Or, drizzle sundae caramel sauce on top of each slice before serving.

Quick and Easy After-School Snack Ideas

You’ve stocked up your kitchen with the right foods to pack a week’s worth of lunches for your children, but what about their after-school snacks? Try these tips for tasty afternoon treats:

Sip your snack: Make a smoothie!

Use Pierre’s frozen yogurt, or even Pierre’s Yovation® Probiotic Frozen Yogurt, to make a refreshing treat. Simply blend it with fruit, ice and some milk, and enjoy! (Think of smoothies as milkshakes made better-for-you.) If you’re entertaining multiple tykes, you can even set up a make-your-own smoothie bar for a fun, interactive activity.

Hola-Fruta-Fruit-Bars

Frozen novelties are fun for kids

Ice cream novelties like sundae cones, ice cream sandwiches, fruit pops, fudge pops and others are perfectly portioned and perfectly priced (they come in bulk), which means they’re the perfect after-school snack for kids. Stock up on a variety of novelties to give your child something new to snack on each day.

Looking for something dairy-free, fat-free and low in calories? Try Pierre’s snack-sized ¡Hola Fruta!® Fruit Bars.

Make frozen fruit cups

This is an easy and fun way to get your children to eat more fruit. Dish out one serving of any flavor of ¡Hola Fruta!® Pure Fruit Sherbet – a refreshing alternative low in fat and cholesterol – and top it with whatever fresh fruit you have on hand. We suggest pairing Strawberry with banana slices (but we won’t hold it against you if you sprinkle fresh raspberries on top of a scoop of Pomegranate & Blueberry).

Sample new flavors with sorbet

Many parents encourage their kids to try something new. Sorbet is the perfect fat free and cholesterol free way to introduce different flavors to the little ones, like the exotic tastes of Passion Fruit and Mango. Better yet, offer these flavors and talk about the fruits they are made of and the parts of the world in which they are grown. Your kids get to go on a “dessert adventure” and you can feel good about serving these low calorie treats.

Graduation parties made easy with ice cream

It’s cap-and-gown season! If you’re planning a party for your graduate, you know how challenging it can be to prepare a menu, stage the seating, decorate – and still have time to catch your breath and enjoy the festivities.

Consider Pierre’s your party planner. We’ll help make things simple – and so, so delicious – at your graduation gathering by enlisting the help of ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet, sherbet and novelties.

Set Up a Sundae Bar

Let guests assemble their own unique creations. Serve a sampling of ice cream flavors – French Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry are perfect sundae-starters! Place bowls of your favorite toppings next to plastic cups and spoons, and let the dessert portion of the party manage itself! Get more tips for building the perfect sundae bar.

Serve Ice Cream Cakes and Pies

There’s no need to turn on the oven when it’s warm outside; whip up ice cream versions of your favorite cakes and pies instead. Simply spread layers of different ice cream flavors in a 9×13 pan, spring form pan or other serving dish, frost with light whipped topping and serve. Best of all, most ice cream cakes and pies can be prepared well ahead of time.spirit-of-america

Get creative with your combinations. We love to fill a store-bought chocolate cookie-crumb crust with Black Cherries & Chocolate Chunks Yovation® Probiotic Frozen Yogurt and drizzle it with yummy chocolate syrup. Or, try this recipe for All-American Ice Cream Pie using Pierre’s Spirit of America® Premium Ice Cream and fresh blueberries and strawberries.

Make Your Own Sundae Cups

Make a signature ice cream dessert in honor of your proud graduate. Find out his or her favorite flavors and make a batch of miniature sundaes using small serving bowls. Simply line up the bowls, fill each with a scoop or two of ice cream and toppings and voila! These treats look great, are easy to make and highlight the star of the party.

Build a Buffet of Ice Cream Novelties

For an even easier spin on setting up a sundae bar, simply fill serving bowls or dishes with ice and offer your guests a range of sundae cones, fudge pops, fruit pops, cream pops, ice cream sandwiches and more. Find out more reasons why you should stock up on ice cream novelties this summer.

Staff a Smoothie Station

For a fun spin on dessert, enlist the help of a trusted family member to be in charge of the blender. Provide cups and straws, and guests will select ingredients from serve-yourself bowls of fresh fruit – we suggest various berries, bananas and peaches. Your blender captain will mix each guest’s cup of fruit with ice cream, frozen yogurt or sorbet for easy, sippable goodness.

You can even make ice cream cocktails – for the guests ages 21 and over only, of course.
