Edy's Pumpkin Ice Cream - Mix-in Ideas? [moved from What's My Craving board]
I just bought some of the Edy's Slow-Churned Light Ice Cream in the Pumpkin (limited edition) flavor. It's really good on its own, but I thought it needed a little texture to it, so I added crushed oreos and graham crackers - it was like eating a pumpkin pie with chocolate cookies!
Anyone else try this ice cream yet, and/or have any other mix-in ideas? It's a HUGE container and I want to see if anyone has any ideas! Thanks :-)
There's a sort of deconstructed cheesecake dessert here in LA that I love where scoops of cheesecake filling and scoops of strawberry sorbet are sprinkled with a graham cracker struesel. I'd bet that streusel would be amazing with pumpkin ice cream. I'd mix graham cracker crumbs with butter, sugar and maybe some spices, spread it in a pan and bake, and then crumble it over the ice cream. Or do the same with ginger snap crumbs.
crumbled snickerdoodles, white chocolate chips, caramel, heath bar, skor bar, caramelized walnuts, cinnamon streusel........
Maybe pistachios? I had a pumpkin pie recipe that used ground pistachios as part of the crust and it was pretty tasty.
I agree with Fleur tho. I'm not too keen on mix ins.
I buy the pre-made waffles by Kashi (low fat, low calorie and a nice amount of fiber) so you can feel that you're eating healthy. Put it in the toaster and then put scoop of pumpkin ice cream on top with a sprinkling of cinnamon.
I actually like to mix in some types of crunchy cereal - Kashi GoLean, Kellogg's Corn Bran, Shreddies, etc.
Although I'd be curious to try something salty, like broken pretzels or cocktail nuts...
mini marshmellows or fluff
white chocolate chips
cinnamon chips (hard to find)
pieces of cinnamon scones
pieces of cheesecake brownies or blondies
honey or maple glazed/roasted nuts
cinnamon toast crunch
carmel chex mix
should i go on? endless possibilities...
they better have this this year, because I like anything pumpkin flavoured. I'm definitely going to try it with crushed ginger snaps or maybe scooped on top of gingerbread. yum yum
It's Dryer's on the west coast. They always have it around Thanksgiving & Christmas. I prefer the Grand to the Slow Churned Light topped with caramel sauce and Emeralds Pecan Pie flavored glazed pecans.
Yeah Edy's! Hope it's as tasty as MaggieMoo's. They make an ice cream pie out of their pumpkin ice cream every year during the holiday season. It's made in a graham cracker crust and garnished with cinnamon and whip cream. You could easily do that at home!
I'd mix it with some Cheesecake Ice Cream and graham cracker crumbs for a Pumpkin Cheesecake version, too! For a mix-in I'd go with cinnamon graham crackers or Brach's Maple Nut Goodies (crushed).
