It may be fall everywhere else in the country, but it is blistering 100 degree heat here in Southern California and I just can't bring myself to crank up the oven. Not even to bake the gluten free pumpkin bread I've been craving for what feels like forever! So, we've been celebrating pumpkin season with this pumpkin spice ice cream float recipe!
It's a fast and easy dessert that only takes a few minutes to whip up and is even impressive enough to serve to guests! Personally, I like to make these with my homemade slow cooker pumpkin butter, but store bought works too.
Today I am sharing this recipe as a part of Sara of Cake Over Steak's annual #virtualpumpkinparty!! We have contributed to this epic online pumpkin-palooza for 3 years now and it is always a treasure trove of all things pumpkin.
