Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie:

Pierre's Pumpkin Pie

  • 1 ready-made graham cracker pie crust
  • 1  1.5 quart container of Pierre’s Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream
  • Whipped cream (optional)

Remove ice cream from freezer, and let it soften at room temperature for about 5-10 minutes. Do not thaw ice cream for too long or else it will crystallize when refrozen. Scoop out ice cream into pie shell and smooth it out. Cover with foil and return to the freezer to harden. Keep pie covered until ready to serve. When ready to serve, top with a dollop of whipped cream and enjoy!

Or how about shaking things up a little bit? No. Really! Pumpkin Pie Milkshakes, anyone? Here’s all you need:

  • Whipped cream (optional)
  • Cinnamon stick (optional)

For a fancy twist, decorate with a red and white striped straw and a cinnamon stick, some graham cracker crumbs, or a dollop of whipped cream!

What Does Your Ice Cream Flavor Say About You? Pierre’s Signature Ultimate Ice Cream Has the Answers

“If you were an ice cream, which flavor would you be?”

pierres-chocolate-lava-cakeRemember that question from The Dating Game and countless Cosmo quizzes? It seemed as if you’d get more points for choosing an “adventurous” flavor – such as Rocky Road, or our version, Everything But the Kitchen Sink® Ice Cream – instead of classic vanilla, chocolate or strawberry (although we have proven that vanilla is anything but boring).

Pierre’s Signature Ultimate Ice Cream wasn’t around when The Dating Game first aired – we introduced it in 2012 to mark our 80th anniversary – but if it were, here’s how we think each flavor would translate to romance and relationships. Think of it as an ice cream zodiac:

Banana Fudge Chunk Ice Cream:
Fun is the name of your game. You live carefree, so much so that more conservative observers might think you have literally gone bananas! And who wouldn’t lose their mind over the perfect mix of banana ice cream, walnuts and fudge?

Cherries & Chocolate Chunks Ice Cream:
Similar to a Gemini, your sweeter side is balanced by a rich earthiness. That’s why you love the perfect balance of thick chocolate pieces and real plump and juicy cherries mixed into a delightfully sweet cherry ice cream.

Chocolate Lava Cake Ice Cream:
Some like it hot, but, baby, you’re volcanic – and saucy to boot! We think the rich chunks of chocolate cake bursting with chocolate “lava” are a sign that you love adventure (and, well, chocolate).

Coconut Fudge Almond Ice Cream:
Just like a surfer along a tropical shore, you make waves. It’s no surprise that you get swept up in the tsunami of flavor that creamy coconut ice cream, fresh almonds and fudge swirls deliver. Hang ten, dude!

Exquisite Vanilla Ice Cream:
Sophisticated and sweet, you enjoy only the finest things in life. So why settle for run-of-the-mill ice cream when you can savor the delightful, designer taste of Madagascar bourbon vanilla extract in this posh pint?

Mocha Mud Pie Ice Cream:
You are alert and awake to new possibilities. And once you taste this blend of coffee and chocolate ice creams with chocolate cream cookie pieces and a delicious chocolate swirl, you’ll realize the possibilities for delicious dessert are endless.

Nun Better™ Snickerdoodle Ice Cream:
You are an original who bucks convention – a one-of a kind sensation who wows over everyone you meet. Just like this flavor. After all, “cookie dough ice cream” doesn’t always have to be of the chocolate chip variety. Instead, you mix things up with heavenly sweet caramel ice cream, real snickerdoodle cookie pieces and a divine caramel swirl.

Five Vanilla Ice Cream Flavors That Are Anything But Vanilla

vanilla-1The word “vanilla” gets a bad rap: Some people use it to mean plain, normal or even boring.

Vanilla ice cream, however, is anything but boring. In fact, it’s is the top-selling ice cream flavor in the United States year after year.

Sweet, Versatile Vanilla Ice Cream

What makes vanilla the rock star of ice creams? Some people say it’s because vanilla ice cream is used in several sundae recipes and because it goes so well with other desserts a la mode.

Maybe it’s because vanilla is the base for many other popular ice cream flavors. You can’t have Chocolate Chip, Moose Tracks ® or even classic ice cream sandwiches without vanilla ice cream.

Or maybe because vanilla ice cream, in all its rich and creamy splendor, is just plain delicious.

We say “all of the above.” We love vanilla so much, we offer many very yummy, very different vanilla flavors:

classic-vanillaBasic But Not Ordinary: Classic Vanilla

Every delightful spoonful of Pierre’s Premium Classic Vanilla Ice Cream takes us back to our childhood – when a bowl of ice cream was the perfect treat on a hot summer day.

Cool, creamy and sweet, this flavor not only helps you beat the heat, but it’s also the cure-all for the blues or a simple sugar craving. And nothing – nothing – makes a piece of cake, a slice of pie, or a root beer float even better like a generous scoop of Classic Vanilla.

french-vanillaWhat Makes French Vanilla Ice Cream, Well, French?

Traditionally, French vanilla ice cream involves blending egg yokes into the ice cream base for an extra rich flavor. But we take it a couple of steps further.

Pierre’s Premium French Vanilla Ice Cream is an award-winning recipe that we’ve been churning out for more than 80 years. We use the world’s finest vanilla extracts to create its signature vanilla custard taste. Is it the smoothest, creamiest, most delicious French vanilla ice cream you’ll ever try? We answer with a resounding “Oui.”

vanilla-beanVanilla Bean Ice Cream: Speck-tacular Flavor!

Can’t get enough vanilla? Then Pierre’s Premium Vanilla Bean Ice Cream is for you.

We kick our Classic Vanilla Ice Cream up a notch by adding specks of real vanilla beans into every scoop for the ultimate vanilla taste. Those tiny little specks offer big bursts of vanilla flavor.

exquisite-vanillaExquisite Vanilla Ice Cream: When Only the Finest Flavor Will Do

If vanilla ice cream is a rock star, then Pierre’s Signature Exquisite Vanilla Ice Cream deserves a Grammy Award.

Like all Pierre’s Signature Ultimate Ice Cream flavors, Exquisite Vanilla is super-indulgent delight made with only the finest, freshest ingredients and no artificial flavors or colors. It’s definitely the cream of the crop.

yovation-vanillaThis Vanilla Probiotic Frozen Yogurt Deserves a Standing Ovation

Yovation® Vanilla Frozen Yogurt offers the irresistibly smooth and creamy vanilla taste you love, but with fewer calories and less fat than regular ice cream. And the good times don’t stop there. With live and active yogurt cultures, all Yovation® varieties offer the wholesome goodness of yogurt plus an extra boost of probiotic benefits with the superior probiotic culture GanedenBC30®.

Go ahead: Have a scoop. It’s OK.

7 Tips for Easy Entertaining with Ice Cream and Other Treats

Whether you are celebrating a graduation, hosting a cookout or planning some other gathering, ice cream and other frozen treats are always the life of the party. Check out these fun – and tasty — ways to entertain your guests.

raise-sundae-bar1) Raise the (sundae) bar.

For a sweet success of a party, assemble a make-your-own sundae bar. Pick out some of your favorite Pierre’s Premium Ice Cream flavors (French Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry are great sundae starters). Decorate a card table in your party’s theme or colors. Keep ice cream containers on ice, and place as many toppings as you can think of in small bowls around the ice cream. And let’s face it, anything can be a sundae topping: cookies, candies, fresh fruit, frozen fruit, syrups, leftover pies and cobblers, brownie bites, nuts – the possibilities are endless.

Find fun serving bowls and spoons at your local craft store, and watch your guests try to top each other’s original creations.

2) Keep things kid-friendly with ice cream novelties.

Remember being a kid and longing to hear the jingle of the ice cream truck coming through your neighborhood? Relive those memories and stock up on classic ice cream novelties – ice pops, fudge pops, ice cream sandwiches and sundae cones —  perfect impromptu treats for the little ones. Single-serving novelties are portable, and there’s no bowl or spoon – only happy children – to clean up.

ice-cream-pie3) Leave the oven off and make an ice cream pie.

Who wants to bake when it’s hot out? Not us. Thankfully, there are plenty of no-bake recipes using ice cream. Our favorite is the classic ice cream pie. It’s easy! You simply fill a cookie-crumb or graham cracker pie crust with alternating layers of your favorite frozen treats, and top with whipped cream and sundae toppings. Try our All-American Ice Cream Pie for inspiration, or view more ice cream recipes.

4) Make your cocktails cooler.

Cool your guests down with a new spin on the summer cocktails they love. Your secret ingredient? Refreshing ¡Hola Fruta!® Pure Fruit Sherbet. Say cheers to chunks of real fruit and fruit purees. View our recipes for piña coladas, daiquiris and margaritas.

pierres-chocolate-lactose-free5) Ice cream for everybody: Try Lactose Free and gluten-free flavors

You never know which of your guests might have milk allergies or sensitivities to lactose. Keeping some Pierre’s Lactose Free Vanilla Ice Cream or Lactose Free Chocolate Ice Cream on hand will ensure that all of your guests can enjoy a sweet treat. And there’s no difference in flavor; everyone will love the rich creaminess of our Lactose Free varieties.

Going gluten-free? Then you’re in luck. Pierre’s offers a wide variety of gluten-free flavors. Explore our ice cream and other frozen treats, and see just how many fresh, fun flavors you can enjoy.

6) Throw an ice cream tasting party.

Invite each guest to bring a pint of his or her favorite ice cream. As the host, you supply small tasting cups, spoons and ice cream scoops. This is a fun way to try new flavors and socialize over sweets. The unique, indulgent flavors of Pierre’s Signature Ultimate Ice Cream are perfect for this pot luck-style party.

7) Help out your health-conscious party-goers.

Your guests who are counting carbs and calories can still enjoy ice cream and other treats this summer. Serve them these better-for-you options:
