It’s Back – Celebrate Fall with Braum’s Pumpkin Ice Cream Inspired Recipes

Scoops of Pumpkin Ice Cream

While some people call it “basic”, we call it delicious. Braum’s Premium Pumpkin Ice Cream is back in time for all your fall festivities. This seasonal sensation creates excitement each fall at our stores. To celebrate, try using this perfect pumpkin flavor to spice up classic desserts.

Pumpkin Ice Cream Float

Embrace the chill of fall and ice cream with a pumpkin-themed float. This float is an autumnal twist on the classic Boston Cooler combo of ginger ale and vanilla ice cream. Be brave and treat yourself to this kooky concoction after a night of trick-or-treating.

What You Need:

  • Braum’s Premium Pumpkin Ice Cream
  • Braum’s Lemon Lime Soda (or soda of your choice)
  • Braum’s Whipped cream for garnish
  • Pumpkin pie spice for garnish


  1. Place three large scoops of Braum’s Premium Pumpkin Ice Cream into a chilled, tall glass.
  2. Tilt the glass slightly toward you as you slowly pour ginger ale over the ice cream. Stop occasionally to let foam subside. Pour until the ale reaches about one inch from the glass’s rim.
  3. Top with optional whipped cream topping and sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice. Serve with a spoon and straw immediately.

Pumpkin Spice Milkshake

This milkshake forgoes coffee flavor to shine light on the true star: pumpkin spice. Blend this quick dessert on a cozy, autumn night in. Serve with a scary movie and blankets.
