Cinnamon Ice Cream

IMG_9244Last summer my husband bought me a gelato maker (ice-cream churner) and I used it almost every day until the air turned chilly and it started collecting dust. In the midst of all the holiday cooking however, I made a delicious pumpkin pie (that I will put up here shortly) and decided that it would go amazingly well with some cinnamon ice-cream.

Therefore, I pulled out the gelato maker and started churning. The result was a delicious creamy vegan, refined sugar free ice cream that went well on its own, with the pumpkin pie and with a blueberry “bundt” cake (more of a supersized blueberry doughnut…more on that later).
