I like these shakes with fresh roasted pumpkin, but you can use canned if you want. This is beyond easy to make and so very good to eat. I'll bet the shakes would even be good as a malt by adding malt powder. I use Exceptional Pumpkin Pie Spice for the spice called for.
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup milk
- 2⁄3 cup pumpkin (fresh roasted cooled)
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 3⁄4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- whipped cream
- Place all ingredients except whipped cream in a blender. Blend on high for a few minutes or until everything is mixed up to the thickness you desire.
- Pour into 4 glasses. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with a little more pumpkin pie spice on top. Serve cold.
This was AWESOME!!! It was so easy and it blended great. It was just a bit thin so I added a little bit more ice cream to make more thick! Hmmmm.....can't wait to have another!!! Thanks for sharing!
This is a great way to use up some pumpkin I've had around for awhile and since DS#3 loves anything pumpkin, this fit the bill. I made for two servings and I also cut way back on the brown sugar. I figured w/the vanilla icecream, that that was enough sweetness. It was!! Thanks for posting this great recipe Jess.!~ Made for 123Hits.
At first, I was a little taken back by the blatantly pumpkin-pie flavor of this shake. It's good, but it can be a shock at first. I ended up mixing my whipped cream into the shake, and that made it a little more milk-shake-y and a little less PUMPKIN!-y. But, by the time I was finished, I ended up making another without whipped cream 'cause I was too lazy to make more. It ended up making for a really good snack for a sore throat and 75-degree weather in December! Thanks! :) Tagged for "Every DAY is a Holiday".
