Creamy, perfectly spiced, refreshing Spiced Apple Cider Ice Cream is the perfect way to enjoy the flavors of fall.

Sipping on a mug of spiced apple cider might be a common way to celebrate fall on a chilly day. But I say step aside hot apple cider! Okay, maybe don’t step aside because it’s still delicious too. But … ICE CREAM. How can you go wrong with ice cream?

I truly believe homemade ice cream is perfectly acceptable year-round, especially when you’re enjoying seasonal flavors like spiced apple cider ice cream!

If it’s chilly out, just bundle up by the fire or wrap yourself in a cozy blanket and put on some super thick wool socks. You could even put on a hat if you want to. Just get warmed up, super easy, right? Then you can enjoy a nice bowl (or mug if you don’t want to hold a bowl) of this delectable spiced apple cider ice cream.

How to Enjoy Spiced Apple Cider Ice Cream

Maybe it seems obvious how to enjoy ice cream. I know, you put it in a bowl and eat it. But if you truly want to make it a special experience, why not get creative? It is after all the time of year when cozy flavors are on the menu for fall harvest and the holidays.

I highly recommend topping this crazy good ice cream with sea salted caramel sauce. True BLISS. There’s no other way to explain it. It’s just simply perfect with salty, creamy caramel sauce. Enough said.

Spiced apple cider ice cream is also so good à la mode with homemade apple pies, galettes, cobblers, crisps, and pumpkin pie. For an extra special treat, you can add a scoop on top of homemade pancakes or waffles. It’s especially delicious served on top pumpkin pancakes! You can even add a scoop or two to a mug of hot chai or coffee for a little fall treat.

This is the perfect time of year to make this luscious ice cream. With u-pick apple orchards open and farmers markets packed with apples, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t enjoy this.

So grab yourself some organic apples, a few fall spices and break out your ice cream maker. Enjoy this cozy treat!

Real Food Spiced Apple Cider Ice Cream :: Dairy-Free Option

Yield: 1 quart
Prep Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

Creamy, perfectly spiced, refreshing Spiced Apple Cider Ice Cream is the perfect way to enjoy the flavors of fall.


  • 2 cups raw/organic/grass-fed cream or full-fat coconut milk/cream
  • 1 cup homemade apple cider or organic spiced apple cider (you can find this in the refrigerated section of your grocery store)
  • 1/3 cup raw honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
  • Zest of 1 organic orange
  • 2 tablespoons grass-fed collagen


  1. Add all ingredients to a blender. Pulse just until combined.
  2. Prepare ice cream maker. Turn ice cream maker on and pour ice cream mixture into the ice cream maker. Churn according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  3. When ice cream starts to have a "soft serve" texture, it's done.
  4. Serve immediately or use a wooden spoon to transfer the ice cream to a freezer-safe container. Cover and freeze until ready to serve. If it's frozen overnight, make sure to remove it from the freezer and leave at room temperature for at least 15 minutes before serving.


  • Dairy-Free Version: For best results use equal parts of coconut cream and full-fat coconut milk in place of the cream.
  • Quick Homemade Apple Cider: Core 4 organic apples, cut into fourths and add to a blender. Add 1 cup filtered water, zest of 1 orange, 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Blend on high until liquified. Strain juice through a fine-mesh strainer, then strain again for the second time and again once more. Juice should be strained 3 times for a thin consistency.
