Can you feel the “busy” season creeping in? As soon as the first cold snap hits, my thoughts quickly drift toward fall parties, my Thanksgiving menu, and all the Christmas details. If I don’t pay attention, I let my life get too hectic. Between my computer, phone, tv, and other gadgets, I can easily become a slave to my “tools.” A few months ago my nutritionist told me to slow down. She was right, I just needed someone to tell me. I began turning off my phone and computer every evening at 6pm. Wow, what a difference! The emails and calls can wait, but the time with my family is precious. It’s time I can’t ever get back.

As a mom, I sometimes find the weekends particularly hard to relax. I cook three meals a day, clean up after everyone, hang out with Pete and the kids and by the end, I’m exhausted (and need a weekend to recuperate)! I’m trying to change. I don’t need to pick up the house while everyone else relaxes. I can do that on Monday morning when Pete heads to work and the kids leave for school. Yesterday I tried it out, sat on the couch and read for a couple of hours. Bliss!

This year, during the “busy” season, I plan to take it slow, leave the electronics behind a bit more often, and enjoy those sweet moments with friends and family.

I saw a new Ben and Jerry’s flavor at the grocery store the other day – Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream with Graham Cracker Swirl – and knew I needed to try out a recipe at home. I skipped the “cheesecake” flavor so those of you who are dairy-free could partake. Also, instead of a “swirl” of graham crackers, I crushed them on top. Pure, fall bliss in a bowl.

If you’re not comfortable with the raw egg yolk then you can omit it. The egg yolk provides extra nutrients and helps make the ice cream a bit more creamy. Also, make sure to use coconut milk in this recipe, not "coconut beverage". I tested this recipe using Native Forest Coconut Milk.

Inspired by Ben and Jerry's

  1. I am so glad that I found your blog.I am loving everything about your blog. This ice cream sounds so good. The creamy pumpkin puree will add even more softness and creamy-ness to the ice cream. YUM! I briefly browsed through your posts and I am sure that I will be back often to check your recipes. Let’s stay connected.

    Hey Carrie – This looks so delicious! Do you think it would be okay to use regular whole milk instead of the coconut milk (it’s all I have on hand)? Would it be a 1:1 substitution? Thank you!

      Thank you! You could either use heavy cream as a 1:1 replacement or 1/2 heavy cream and 1/2 whole milk. I think that just milk might lend an icy ice cream and it wouldn’t be as creamy as intended.

    I truly enjoyed reading your blog. This is a great recipe! I can’t wait to try it! And kudos to you for taking some time for yourself! We as women MUST do that. Especially with the high risks of heart disease in women. Continue to do so! No one says we MUST be so busy…but taking care of yourself is definitely a must. :) Spend more time in the kitchen making what you want to make. It’s very therapeutic. :) take care.
