=Honestly, I didn’t think this would work.
I wanted a drink with tastes of fall — pumpkin and spices and things like that. But I wanted a cold drink for once, instead of all the warm drinks I normally have about now. A milkshake seemed like the way to go, but I didn’t know if it would work with…pumpkin.
But man, oh sake’s alive — this pumpkin milkshake was good.
It doesn’t have that weird pumpkin texture that pie does. But it’s got a lovely combination of spices and pumpkin and whipped cream (natch) and it all just works.
Pumpkin shakes. Maybe the new Thanksgiving dessert? Let’s do it.
- 2 c ice cream
- 1/2 c pumpkin puree
- 1/2 c milk
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 shake nutmeg (approx 1/8 tsp)
- 1 shake allspice (approx 1/8 tsp)
- Add all ingredients to a blender and pulse until smooth.
- Top generously with whipped cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon.
