...to make EVERYTHING Pumpkin!!!
Two days ago it was Pumpkin muffins which I somehow didn't get a picture of, but was way yummy. Today it will be Pumpkin Pie Milkshake. Oh holy goodness.....my mouth waters just looking at this picture.
Here's the recipe from ourbestbites.com Make some, you know you want to! :)
PUMPKIN PIE MILKSHAKE:
Pumpkin Pie Milkshake
Recipe by Our Best Bites
1/3 C pumpkin, canned or homemade
1/4 - 1/2 C milk
1/4 t vanilla1/2 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
Pop everything but graham crackers in a blender. Start with 1/4 C milk and then slowly add more if needed to make the blender process it all. I used somewhere between 1/4-1/2 C.
A note about blenders: Here's the problem with making thick, diner style milkshakes at home: A lot of times you have to add so much milk to the thing to get the blender to process that it turns into a milk-slushie instead. Or you have to blend and plunge, blend and plunge, etc. You know the drill, right? So if you have any trouble with your blender, I would recommend blending everything but the ice cream first and then mashing it into the ice cream by hand (well, with a hand. Holding a fork or spoon :) If your scooped ice cream sits out at room temp while you measure the other things and get them all ready, then by the time you mash it all together it should be a good consistency.
Sprinkle with crushed graham cracker crumbs before serving. It reminds me of DQ's Pumkin Pie Blizzard!
