Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

When I started this blog, there was a blog post trending about pumpkin pie milkshakes.  Countless people sent me the link.  So, by popular demand, I made one!  It was fun, easy and delicious.  And most of the ingredients are probably right in your cupboard and freezer.

Pumpkin Pie Milkshake
Recipe by Our Best Bites

1/3 C pumpkin, canned or homemade
1/4 – 1/2 C milk
1/4 t vanilla
1/2 t cinnamon
1/16 t cloves (just use a 1/8 t measure and fill it half way, or do a pinch)
1/16 t nutmeg
2 T brown sugar
2 C vanilla ice cream
1-2 graham crackers


I kind of just threw some milk into the blender, added some pumpkin and pumpkin spice and blended it up.  I used a food processor because it was more readily available, but definitely use a blender if you have one.  Then sprinkle with some graham cracker crumbs.  I didn't measure at all, I just eye-balled it.  And it was so good!  It reminded me so much of Dairy Queen's Blizzard, but so many less calories.

  1. Hi there.....just wanted to extend some warm wishes upon discovering your blog and looking forward to whatever pumpkin-infused goodness is to come in the future. I'm new to whole blogging thang, following rather than posting at present, and love 'single issue' focussed blogs so I was delighted to find yours and have really enjoyed catching up on the posts so far. Here's hoping your blog goes from strength to strength, till then, pumpkin-spiced best wishes, M.
