Why We Love This Pumpkin Pie Milkshake Recipe
October brings a whirl-wind of crisp cool air, leaves, Halloween, and of course, pumpkin! I know I am not the only one that is obsessed with all things pumpkin spice this time of year, right?
To make the easiest fall-inspired treat, you can make a simple Pumpkin Pie Milkshake! It is basically like a slice of pumpkin pie without the pie crust, and therefore, without all the work.
Not only am I pumpkin spice crazy, but I am also milkshake crazy. Milkshakes are so easy to make and such a delicious treat! They are perfect anytime of year, too. In the summer, I love my Peach Milkshake recipe and my Strawberry Shortcake Milkshake recipe!
But when it comes to fall, a pumpkin milkshake is the way to go. This Pumpkin Pie Milkshake recipe was a treat I served to our Halloween party guests several years back and it’s bit a seasonal favorite in my house ever since.
Ingredients You Need
This Pumpkin Spice Shake recipe uses simple ingredients to create the best fall-inspired treat there is. If you have extra pumpkin puree from a previous recipe, that is perfect to use here! The gingersnaps add a little extra flavor and thicken this shake up. After you blend it up, don’t forget to top it off with some whipped cream!
- Pumpkin Puree – make sure to use canned pumpkin that is 100% pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling!
- Brown Sugar – for a caramely sweetness
- Pumpkin Pie Spice – to make it taste like real pumpkin pie!
- Vanilla Ice Cream – don’t be shy with the scoops of ice cream!
- Gingersnap Cookies – break them up into small pieces so they blend easier
- Milk – to add some creaminess
How to Make This Pumpkin Milkshake Recipe
Pumpkin milkshakes are SO easy to make! Simply puree all of the ingredients together in a blender until smooth.
Garnish with extra cookie pieces, whipped cream, a dash of cinnamon, and some pepitas (pumpkin seeds) and a drizzle of caramel sauce!
Frequently Asked Questions
To make a healthy pumpkin shake, simply replace the ice cream for plain yogurt and the cookies with a banana! You can skip the brown sugar, but I recommend adding a little bit for that hint of sweetness.
Absolutely! Make a vegan pumpkin pie milkshake by using non-dairy milk, plant-based vanilla ice cream, and vegan gingersnap cookies!
Definitely. If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice on hand, you can combine 1 teaspoon each of nutmeg, cloves, ginger and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon! Mix it well and use 1 tablespoon of the mixture in this milkshake and keep the rest for other pumpkin recipes!
